The Princess of Wales is sporting a modern style and managing her personal brand with her new hairstyle, experts have revealed.
Royal fans went crazy for Princess Kate’s style as she stepped away to return to her royal engagements this month, following a family summer vacation.
As she debuts ’70s-style bangs and curls in her slightly shorter locks, the mother of three still looks regal while fulfilling her royal commitments, whether in her as patron of England Rugby at the Rugby World Cup or overseeing the success of charitable projects as she does today at HMP High Down in Surrey.
As the Princess of Wales, 41, begins her second year in office, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, award-winning personal stylist Lisa Talbot says the new haircut is indicative of a “young and modern” member » of the royal family who wants to “adopt a new look”.
She told FEMAIL that Princess Kate’s ever-changing look is a sign that she wants to follow trends and change with the times, as the royal family itself evolves.
Hair experts have weighed in on the Princess of Wales’ new hairstyle as she begins a new year of public engagements. As Princess Kate, 41, arrived at HMP High Down in Surrey today, she looked regal as always with her hair in bouncy curls and middle-parted bangs.
While making a low-key solo appearance at the Stade de Marseille to cheer on England against Argentina in the Rugby World Cup on Saturday, the princess debuted her thick brunette locks in a chic down-do paired to his favorite white Alexander McQueen suit. .
Although she didn’t make any drastic changes to her hairstyle, Princess Kate swapped the side parting she favored during her royal engagements before her summer vacation for a center parting.
Ahead of her summer family vacation, the Princess of Wales opted for straight hair when out in public, with a side parting (pictured during the Wimbledon 2023 men’s singles final).
She also swapped straight locks for perfect curls and sported loose ’70s-style bangs with a middle part.
According to Lisa, Kate’s fun new look is a sign that she’s ready to move with the times and in tune with new trends.
“With a new season coming, it’s nice to see Kate debut a new hairstyle that’s slightly shorter and with more layers,” she said.
“I think it means a royal who is young and modern and really wants to embrace a new look that creates a personal brand that attracts the public to her.
“It shows confidence, empathy, kindness and a willingness to show that she is like many women who can and will change over time.”
Louise Bailey, hair extension expert at Beauty Club London and hairstylist to the stars, highlighted the princess’ use of hair extensions to achieve her new look.
Rather than adding length, Louise explained that it’s likely that Princess Kate opted for extensions to add a little more thickness to her brunette hair.
She added that Kate’s stylist “mixed lighter elements” with the extensions, which enhanced the overall shine of her hairstyle.
