After four months of maternity leave (save for a July 26th visit to Portsmouth with the Duke of Cambridge),  the Duchess of Cambridge visited the Anna Freud Centre in London, where she learned about how the charity is working to improve young people’s mental health care.

Freud, the sixth child of Sigmund Freud, founded the center in 1952. Today, Catherine toured the the King’s Cross site for the charity’s planned Community Campus.

How To Get Kate Middleton’s Intricate Up Dos

Split Kate Middleton up Dos

A few days ago I decided I would not go another day without trying to recreate one of Kate’s up dos.  Knowing myself and the amount of tries that would lead to me sobbing into a $4 bottle of wine, I called on celebrity hair stylist Jonathan Colombini.  Why?  Because he knows what he’s doing, and he likes British television (the latter wasn’t exactly a pre-requisite, but isn’t that wonderful?)

Colombini is responsible for making Laura Prepon, Fergie and AnnaLynne McCord look hot-to-trot, and my hope is that he’ll one day work on  Kate’s hair and confirm that it smells like lavender and loves a good G&T.

Ok. Up dos.  Kate.  Let’s do this:  Continue reading

In what will be her last set of engagements before welcoming Prince or Princess Alexandra/Charlotte/Alice/Philip/Spencer/Edward, the Duchess of Cambridge made sure that her greatest asset was on point.

And on point, it was.  I don’t know if it’s the work of Amanda Cook Tucker, Richard Ward, Rossano Ferretti or a group of angels, but those curls were full of life.  There was bounce, there was shine, there was volume. It.  All.  Worked.  Continue reading

Hark! Do you see that?  It’s the hair of Catherine the Great, she who has set a new standard for fabulous locks.  Greys?  Yes, they pop up every now and then, but one has to show one’s subjects that one is a woman of the people and that greys do exist, even for the great and the good.

Catherine made famous the “Chelsea blowdry,” described as a “big, bouncy, glossy hairstyle” that looks expensive (Think shine! Think Volume!), and now everyone wants what she’s having.

Let’s look at that bounce!  Continue reading

During a marathon session of Friends today and noticed the loveliness of Monica’s ex-boyfriend, Fun Bobby’s hair.  So wavy, so luscious.  Even when he was a total bummer off the bottle, Fun Bobby’s hair was run-your-fingers-through-it nice.

On a related note, let’s one-up Fun Bobby by showing him an even better head of hair.  Despite remarks to the contrary, the Duchess of Cambridge‘s follicles are gorgeous without being too showy.  Save for the “fringe” incident, Catherine’s hair has managed to mind its Ps & Qs while still remaining the envy of every salon-goer who points to a glossy and says, “I want that.”  Continue reading
