How To Get Kate's Royal Wedding Hairdo

 Bumble and bumble stylist Britney Williams breaks it down.

"Kate Middleton’s down ‘do looked gorgeous, elegant enough for her big day but true to her personal style," said Britney.

1. Start by applying a root lifting spray like Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray all over damp hair. Blow dry with a round brush for a smooth foundation with volume and a bit of bend. 

 2. Use a 1-inch curling iron to add wave by working around the head in sections with the same width as the barrel of the curling iron. 

3. After the curls have cooled for a minute or two, use a flat brush to loosen and soften them into flowing waves.

4. To enhance the definition of the waves, spray a bit of Shine On Finishing Spray ($25) on hands and gently work through the hair. 

5. Pull back the hair from the sides of the head and secure with bobby pins. Finish with a healthy spritz of Spray de Mode ($26) to give flexible hold that will last through the day without making hair crunchy."
