Kate Middleton Swaps Her Signature Blow Dry For A Party-Ready Hairstyle

If you can’t try a new hairstyle during the festive season, when can you? It’s a sentiment the Duchess of Cambridge clearly subscribes to. She showed off a new hair look at the Royal Variety Performance in London on November 18, 2021.

Sporting a deep side parting and a tumble of party-ready curls, Kate looked dazzling as she arrived at the event with Prince William. In fact, the new hairstyle – which was suitably glossy and thick – was the perfect partner to the Duchess’s emerald green sequined Jenny Packham gown. Festive much?

It’s rare that Kate strays from her signature bouncy blow dry. While she has previously experimented with a slightly shorter length and tried a gentle curtain fringe, thus far she has generally avoided tighter curls. But, ’tis the season, right?
