It’s a DoC week this week. No, not a bad sofa company but a whole bunch of exciting Duchess Of Cambridge sightings which inevitably means a flurry of Kate Middleton style column inches. Today it’s all about Kate’s Farrah Fawcett-esque hair - an interesting change for a girl who rarely strays from her signature mid-length waves. The slight side-sweep and the thick half-fringe frame her face gorgeously and add an instant update.
The style reminds us of her innocent university days - remember that shy, smitten with a Prince look she sported? Well, we do and nothing passes us by when it comes to the Duchess. So, what’s the reason for the new style switch up? Although Clarence House won’t give any comment about the cut, we can suggest a few options.
Possibly Kate has gone for a micro trim to create clever layers that enable her to switch up her style with a quick flick of a barrel brush. The retro (almost Diana-like) fringe perfectly suited the Mulberry Seventies-inspired dress she wore last night, but for her outing in Cambridge today, she's gone sleeker and not quite as flicky. It's a handy style when you want to keep your look fresh for all those inquisitive eyes.
