Proud parents with an amazing blow-dry, sorry, baby, in tow!
When new mum Kate Middleton stepped out on the steps of the Lindo wing last night, proudly sharing her new little prince with the world only 24 hours after giving birth, we just couldn’t believe how totally amazing she looked. Whilst we were, of course, dying to catch a glimpse of the royal babe, we couldn’t help but notice Kate’s impressive new-mother glow. Princess perfect skin was topped off with a stellar blow dry- with a slight curl at the ends and through her bangs, this was K-Mid hair perfection at its best! A rosy blush, nude lips and a soft smoky eye ensured the new mother really was the picture of glowing health.
Whilst we never expected anything less than a flawless, frizz-free mane on our favourite duchess, we were dying to know the secrets behind the postpartum ‘do- whose expert hands worked such hair magic? Did K-Mid get her blow-dry done in the suite? When did she get those highlights done? Well, fear not, ladies, as we’re about to give you the royal treatment!
Middleton was a loyal client at Richard Ward’s salon in Chelsea, London until last September, when Amanda Cook Tucker, 50, accompanied the royal couple on their Diamond Jubilee tour to Southeast Asia. Tucker had already been cutting the hair of Prince William and Harry since they were kiddies, and apparently quickly became Kate’s personal hairstylist during her pregnancy due to the fact that Tucker makes house visits. We reckon Kate must have been pretty impressed with Tucker’s Asian-humidity-defying blow-dries!
Apparently, Tucker’s ex-husband, Neville Tucker, also has royal connections- his Knightsbridge salon held the Royal Warrant from 1980 to 1994, working with Queen Elizabeth’s longest-serving hairdresser, Charles Martyn.

According to Prince William, the royal baby has inherited his mother’s beauty as he told the press last night, “He has her looks” although he also joked that the baby has “way more hair than me”. Do we spy a new client for Tucker?! Only time will tell…
Either way, we think Kate looked totally gorgeous- fingers crossed we look this good after giving birth!
