Grey? What grey? Kate Middleton is reportedly maintaining her gorgeous chestnut locks in true Duchess style, as Vanity Fair reports she spent six hours in the salon of a new stylist, Rossano Ferretti.
Ferretti is known for a £600 ($1,046 CAD) haircut, mysteriously called “the Method,” that involves texturizing with a pair of handmade scissors and accentuating “the natural fall of the hair.”
Middleton had a six hour appointment with the Italian hairstylist after she was photographed with stray greys recently, including at a Poppy Day appearance. He came very highly recommended: in addition to Middleton sister Pippa’s patronage, the late Princess Diana entrusted her look to Ferretti.
Whatever the Duchess is doing, it’s working. Her ’do was impeccable at a dinner held last week, as it was again at the annual State Reception at Buckingham Palace. On the latter occasion, that well-maintained mane was crowned with a diamond and pearl tiara originally worn by the Queen Mother in the ’20s, a loaner from Queen Elizabeth. Okay, so maybe a four figure haircut isn’t so extravagant under those circumstances.
Money might buy perfect hair, but it can’t buy love, specifically the love of British people with too much voting time on their hands. At the British Fashion Awards on Monday, December 2, the Duchess of Cambridge lost the fan-voted British Style Award, as did Kate Moss, Carey Mulligan, Cara Delevingne, Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner and H&M underwear enthusiast David Beckham, to One Direction’s Harry Styles. No word on who cuts those curls.
