The Duchess of Cambridge's hair is getting all sorts of attention these days ... almost as much as that non-existent Kate Middleton baby bump!
So how does the duchess always look so magnificent?
With a lot of effort, according to a new report. Dating back to her April 2011 wedding, London's Richard Ward Hair and Metrospa has been busy!
Even as an official member of the royal family, Kate still heads to that salon, where she's been a client for nearly a decade, multiple times a week.
Her shiny, volume-filled blowouts start at $75.
But there's no royal treatment. Kate "insists on visiting the salon rather than having them come to her" and tipping generously, a source says.
"Kate's a girlie girl," adds another source, noting that Kate prefers organic vegetable-based hair dye and of course, a sleek blowout to top it off.
Which takes awhile, but that's all good. "She loves her time there and has known everyone there for years so it's relaxing for her," an insider says.
To create her curls, her stylist waits until it's "80 percent wet and then uses a good blow dryer with a concentrator nozzle and a real-bristle brush."
That way, "the serum memorizes the form and holds the curl in place while you blow dry." Good to know. Follow the link for more Kate Middleton pictures and observe!
