We spotted Kate Middleton wearing a twisty little up 'do yesterday as she was driving out of mum and dad's place in Bucklebury, England; and, as we know, Kate doesn't often wear her hair up — it's always long and bouncily blow-dried to perfection — so we started to wonder, is it perhaps a lil' test run for a certain big day around the corner? Think about it. Experts always recommend having a trial run before the wedding when it comes to hair and makeup, that way you can tweak anything that's not quite right and ensure you're 100 percent happy on the day, so it makes sense that Kate would be doing the same right about now, too. It was thought that Kate would stick with her signature style and wear her hair long and flowy, but whether she's just whipped up her hair to get it off her face or is road-testing a new potential wedding hairstyle, she looks great with her hair down. Roll on Friday where all will be revealed!
The latest Royal Wedding word to come out of the UK is that Kate Middleton wants to wear flowers in her hair, not a tiara. A tiara is of course the more classic option — with the Queen and the late Princess Diana both wearing them on their wedding day as well as to various other royal engagements. We think Kate will look gorgeous whatever she decides to wear — hurry up already, April 29 — but we couldn't resist a quick flashback through the years to see what other royals had gone for. We do love a good wedding, after all!
The gorgeous Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth were married over the weekend — congratulations, guys! — and we can't wait to see photos of the happy couple celebrating with their friends and family! We know the designer of Reese's gown but so far we're not sure how the beautiful bride wore her hair, so we thought we'd play a little guessing game! Do you think Reese would've gone for a pretty and girly half-up, half-down style; a va va voom ponytail like she wore to the Oscars; a classic up 'do; or kept things sleek and simple with her hair out?
Question: have you ever seen Kate Middleton with her hair up? Like fancy up, not I'm-on-the-slopes up? Huh. Us neither. 'Cept for when she wore a ponytail to the Tenacity of the Tasman premiere in London but that's not real fancy up. She's like Rachel Zoe 2.0. Which begs the question, will she throw royal tradition on its head and wed with her hair down? We're not sure. It's going to be the Wedding of the Century and we know the Royals are big on their tradition so hair down — even if she did have the best blow-dry in history today — seems a little too chillaxed. Methinks the Queen wouldn't like it. Whaddya reck? Will Kate stick with her signature hair down style or go along with royal wedding etiquette which dictates and up 'do?
Memo: my wedding date has just been moved from does-not-exist to tomorrow, for there are simply too many pretty bridal hairstyles to rock in just one day, I'll have to have a few 'practice' weddings first.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to wedding hair is don't be lured into the false trap that your only option is a sleek chignon—sure that's a gorgeous style but the same can be said for braids, loose waves or a simple blow-dry.
