The Duchess of Cambridge is in quite a unique position. You see, even celebrities that people swear to love and follow forever lose their lustre sooner or later (hello, Justin Bieber).

However, the fascination with Kate Middleton just doesn’t seem to be wavering. No one has lost interest in the fashionable Royal – and things don’t look set to change anytime soon. So, in honour of her arrival in Australia, I thought I’d reveal the four products you need to own before attempting to recreate what I’m dubbing as the ultimate ‘Duchess ‘do’.
#1: THE PERFECT HAIR COLOUR
If you’re after a colour as deliciously decadent and three-dimensional as Kate’s, you need a colour that isn’t going to damage your hair as you dye it. You see, sometimes colouring alone can take the lustre out of any hair hue, which is why Schwarzkopf Nectra Colour in Nougat Brown is the perfect go-to product. It contains nourishing ingredients such as vitamin A, E and amino acids to gently colour and soften your hair without skimping on the depth of the colour.
#2: A NOURISHING HAIR MASK
If you want your locks to look as soft and whimsical as Kate’s, you need to invest in a nourishing hair mask that will leave your hair healthy, pliable and receptive to bouncy curls that stay all day. Paul Mitchell Instant Moisture Daily Treatment is perfect as it features the combined action of soy proteins and shea butter to repair and revive your hair.
#3: A HAIR TOOL
Creating the hair flicks that The Duchess has become famous for isn’t easy – unless you have the right curling tong. The Cloud Nine Waving Wand features signature one-touch waving control and a ceramic-coated barrel so you can experience even curling and serious shine. To mimic Catherine’s waves, simply clamp the ends of your hair and twist the barrel up towards the crown of your head once or twice (depending on the length of your hair), hold for a few seconds, and release.

#4: THE RIGHT ACCESSORIES
Catherine favours the ‘angel crown’ hair look – and with good reason. The angelic style allows you to sport sassy waves, while keeping the hair away from your face. Scunci No-Slip Grip Split Bobby Pins are perfect to secure this look. Simply sweep the front pieces of your hair on either side of your head towards the back and then secure each piece to the rest of your hair with one of the split bobby pins. The two-pronged pins and shiny finish create a sophisticated look that’s a little more adventurous than the average bobby pin.
