I have to admit that the anticipation of what hair style Kate Middleton would choose was killing me! From the moment I heard she had a team of 4 hair dressers preparing her, I was on the edge of my seat. In the end, Kate chose the classic & beautiful "half up/half down" style.
Kate is known for wearing her long hair down , she noted that for her wedding day "She wanted to feel like herself" - I think this look is a perfect way to balance the glamor of the occasion, while staying true to her trademark "look."
Here is a similar look on Kate's sister, Pippa:
Note that Pippa doesn't have as much volume, and her style differs by showcases more curl.
|Note the beautiful profile the volumized back-crown gives!|
