Pro Stylists Create Runway Looks Fit for the Royal Wedding

We always see Kate with her hair down, and it is clear that she feels more comfortable with a relaxed, flowing hairstyle,” said Eva Scrivo, L’Oréal Professionnel Celebrity Stylist. “However, it is more appropriate for the occasion to wear her hair up. She will be more comfortable when posing for photos and an upsweep is especially flattering with a veil. Using a light-hold hairspray, such as L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium 2 (SRP $23, 11oz), Kate could wear a modern chignon for the ceremony similar to the style we created at Badgley Mischka and take her hair down for an effortless look at the reception.”

The hair of every bride should be simple and elegant,” said Yann Varin, owner of Yann Varin Salon. “The low and full knot created for the Carolina Herrera Bridal collection is perfect for brides who choose to wear a low-placed veil, which would be stunning on Kate Middleton. This style suits her understated glamour. To achieve this look, use L’Oréal Professionnel Mousse Volupté (SRP $19, 6.5 oz.,) to build body for the volume needed and tame flyaways.”

“Kate Middleton offers a young take on timeless beauty; she is both conservative and modern,” said Amit Abraham, L’Oréal Professionnel Portfolio Artist.  “An upswept look like the one we created for Priscilla of Boston, that is sleek and classic in the front, but fresh and romantic in the back, will reflect this duality in her personality. This look will be the perfect nod to the classic, yet modern and strong like the late great Princess Diana. Try L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium 3 (11 oz., $23) for workable hold that is strong yet brushable.”

“The hairstyle at Anne Barge was sleek and simple,” said L’Oréal Professionnel Portfolio Artist, Joseph DiMaggio. “A style like this allows the dress to do the talking and lets the bride’s natural beauty shine through. This look would be perfect for Kate Middleton, who might be bolder with her fashion choices than previous royal brides.
