The Secret to Duchess Kate’s Perfect Blow-dry

The Duchess of Cambridge always looks beautiful and totally flawless. With her signature bouncy hair, glowing complexion and on-trend fashion picks, she proves time and time again who reigns supreme in the style stakes. But while most of us can’t afford her beautiful wardrobe, the good news is that her glossy mane is within reach! The Duchess’ trusted stylist, Richard Ward, has revealed the secret ingredient behind Kate’s perfect blow dry - and it can be yours for less than a fiver! Find out more about argan oil hair products and how they could transform your tresses...

Stylist Richard Ward has been doing Kate’s hair for over a decade and was responsible for her beautiful bridal demi-chignon for the Royal wedding in 2011. Speaking to American People magazine about the Duchess' beautiful mane, the celebrity stylist explained, "It's all about cocktailing small amounts. I favour an Argan oil elixir– which is a cross between a serum and an Argan oil – this works very well for giving the hair shine." Argan oil comes from the kernels of Morocco’s argan tree and can be used to moisturise and hydrate hair, while taming those pesky flyaways.
