Kate does it again by wearing her normally flowing locks pinned back into a stunning up-do. Kate’s hair is styled sleek away from her face with height at the crown and two side braids/plaits intricately laced into a knotted chignon.
A chignon-pronounced ‘sheen-yon originates from the French phrase chignon du cou – and can be traced back as far as ancient Greece and China.

Step 1: Use root lifting spray, such as Redken Rootful 06 Root Lifting Hair Spray to give the hair some volume and texture.
Step 2: Separate the hair into three sections. The first should be mid-way to the ear, the second up to the crown of the head, and the third should be the remaining strands. Pull the bottom section into a ponytail.
Step 3: Tease the ponytail to get volume and then twist into a bun. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 4: Now, onto the second section (or hair at the crown). Split into two sections by creating a diagonal part.
Step 5: Wrap the two pieces around the bun, with each going in an opposite direction.
Step 6: Twist the front pieces and wrap around the chignon. When placing the bobby pins at the top to keep hair in place, make sure to push up. This creates the volume at the crown.
Step 7: Apply a strong hold hairspray, such as Sebastian Re-Shaper Strong Hold Hairspray to keep hair in place.
Et Voila! Prince Harry will be yours in no time at all.
