Kate and William Royal Wedding 2011



Today was the long awaited Royal Wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William. I have been waiting for so long to see what Kate would look like and how she would style her hair. I have been asked by so many people on my thoughts and predictions for Kate's Wedding hair and have written articles for fashion websites and a previous write up on my blog HERE Kate had chosen to wear her hair in the very classical and stunning half up half down bridal style.


Beautifully curled and with some fullness to the crown area the finished look was complimented beautifully by the Queen's 'Halo' tiara which was made by Cartier in 1936. This was loned to Kate by the Queen as her 'something borrowed'.This hair style is a true bridal classic and one I am often asked to create for brides. It is created by adding body to the hair with heated rollers or ghd stylers and then taking the hair back from the face and pinning it below the crown area.


I think we are certainly going to see vintage tiaras become fashionable again for bridal hair styles, there are some beautiful tiaras available on the internet and this tiara by bridal jewellery specialists 'Flo and Percy' would be a stunning tiara to replicate the Royal tiara. Kate also wore platinum and diamond pear shaped drop earings made by London Jewellers Robinson Pelham. These were Kate's wedding day gift from her parents.


I think all would agree that she looked simply stunning and will become the jewel in the Royal's Crown.
