Kate Middleton's Hair: How To Do The Duchess Of Cambridge's Ponytail In Two Minutes

The Duchess of Cambridge has looked flawless throughout the Royal Tour of New Zealand and as well modelling signature styles from her favourite designers, Kate Middleton has also been seen with her hair in a different style (by this we mean, she's actually tried an updo.)

Ok, it was nothing too radical, but the Duchess swept her long brunette locks up into a ponytail for her visit to a memorial service in the town of Blenheim.

And as to be expected, there wasn't a hair out of place. (That's what you get when you travel with hairstylist, Amanda Cook, who has been paid for by Prince Charles.)

So - how can Kate's style be recreated, when you haven't got your own personal hairdresser to hand? The answer is simple. Just er, cheat.

Hairstylist Luke Hersheson (son of salon owner and hairdresser to the duchess, Daniel Hersheson) recommends the Invisible Ponytail.

"It's undetectable, that's why we created it," he said.

"The piece simply clips in over your pony and secures by wrapping a strand of hair around the base which makes the join undetectable. It blends seamlessly and effortlessly with your natural hair." Clever - and a great, easy-to-do idea for longer hair types.
