  • Short summer hair, don't care

    This Wimbledon, it isn’t just tennis stars like Venus Williams (or rather, should we say, Venus Williams’ bra) or Johanna Konta taking centre court.

    Instead, yesterday, all eyes were actually on the Duchess of Cambridge because the 35-year-old just got a short summer haircut and debuted it at Wimbledon.

    After having explained why she was banned from Wimbledon back in 2013, Kate Middleton was back with a stylish vengeance – and it won’t be long until this haircut will have the Kate Middleton effect.

    From Kate Middleton’s favourite beauty products to the Kate Middleton diet, everyone is obsessed with what the Duchess is doing.

    Now, her new hair cut is being hailed the ‘Middy-Cut’ and although it’s not a huge change, it’s quite the departure for Kate, who is known for her long chestnut locks (because, did you notice it’s slightly darker too?)

    Hair-stylist and Viviscal Ambassador Philippe Tholimet has said that this shorter style makes the Duchess look ‘younger and also more individual and unique.’

    And, apparently this kind of mid-length cut suits everyone: ‘A mid-length cut is a great universal choice as it would suit any face shape. It’s a popular choice with women as it’s flattering, low-maintenance and versatile. What the hairstylist will need to make work with the face is creating layers or not and where the parting will sit. The rounder the face is the more layers you will need to create trying to elongate the face.’
