    Kate Middleton‘s hair is enveyed by women all over the globe.

    The Duchess of Cambridge almost always has her long brunette locks perfectly blown out and styled in chic cascading curls. Now one insider is dishing about the work behind the blowout – and sharing one tiny criticism of the Duchess’ ‘do.

    Denise McAdam, who worked as a hairstylist for the Royal family for more than 35 years, spoke to Radio Times magazine about Kate’s iconic waves.
