Kate Middleton has gotten a bunch of unneeded flak lately regarding her gray hairs, so it's not surprising that she's apparently gone dark ... sort of literally!

As you can see, her hair is a much deeper shade of brown now than this summer. She looks fantastic either way (and even gray), but check out the change:

Reportedly, Kate Middleton visited famous UK stylist Rossano Ferretti (having ditched James Pryce) and sat in the chair for SIX hours to update her look.

The alleged cost of this? $800. Hey, at least it looks amazing.

Who knows what prompted the change, but the darker look is both sophisticated, pretty and seasonal ... not that she needs any sort of approval from us.

James Pryce, Kate Middleton's longtime hairstylist, once described his eight-year relationship with her one "that's been built on trust and discretion."

Apparently he violated one or the other, though, because he's out.

The Telegraph reports that, since leaving the Richard Ward Salon after the royal wedding, Pryce has fallen out of favor with the Duchess of Cambridge.

"Richard Ward still cuts Kate's hair and she has color done at the salon," an inside says, "Plus, she has her stylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, who blow dries her hair."

"James has really been pushed out."

While Kate Middleton has had her share of stylists over the years, her bond with Pryce was particularly noteworthy, as she was seeing him since 2003.

Prince William's wife's fierce fashion was not the focal point of her look for once.

Kate Middleton always had great hair, and now the Duchess has gotten a (slight) makeover that people are buzzing about after various public appearances this week.

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!

Kate Middleton has officially stepped outside of her fashion comfort zone!

In London Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge worked the red carpet at the BOA Olympic Concert dress in a stunning emerald Jenny Packham pleated gown.

The design, which featured a low-cut neckline and a sheer, lace back, is accented with a crystal-adorned ribbon that cinched the royal's waist. Take a look:

The 30-year-old fashion icon paired the breathtaking dress with Jimmy Choo "Vamp" platform glitter sandals and a matching Jenny Packham bespoke clutch.

The more-revealing-than-normal number wasn't her only new look this week. Kate Middleton's dress earlier this week turned heads due to its slit up the leg.

Kate, who arrived hand-in-hand with her husband Prince William, wore her hair in an elaborate braided chignon that ensured the dress' sheer back was on display.

Another resounding style win, wouldn't you say? For many more of the fashionable royal's looks, follow the link for THG's gallery of Kate Middleton pics!
