Kate Middleton's quickly becoming a fashion icon. But that's not the only way the soon-to-be-bride of Prince William's emerging as a trend-setter.
More and more women now want to wear their hair like she does - and on "The Early Show on Saturday Morning," Johnny Lavoy, a consulting hair expert for L'Oreal Paris, filled women in on how they can emulate Kate - at least as far as their hair is concerned!
Look #1: HAIR DOWN (Smooth, bouncy curls)
Blow-dry hair with a round-brush to add volume and keep hair smooth
Then, set hair with a medium /large-barrel curling iron
Pin curls in place to set the style
Remove pins and brush through hair for a smooth style with big, bouncy curls
This versatile style can go from day to night in a snap!
Products Needed to Achieve/Visuals: round brush, large-barrel curling iron
Look #2: HALF-UP STYLE WITH CURLS
This polished style can be achieved with a smaller-barrel curling iron to create defined curls:
Gather the top half of hair and pull back
For a little extra volume at the top, give a slight tease
Then, secure with a gorgeous barrette
Lock in this style with one of my favorites -- L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray. It delivers all-day hold with a satin, touchable finish
This regal style is easy-to-achieve and a great way to dress up your typical day wear/office attire
Products Needed to Achieve/Visuals: Elnett Satin Hairspray, tighter-barrel curling iron & barrette
Look #3: SLIGHTY-DISHEVELED SIDE BUN WITH A LITTLE HAT!
If you want, start by curling a few sections to add some texture to hair
Then, pull hair back and to the side before twisting into a loose bun and pinning in place with some bobby pins; it's OK if a few pieces pop out, that's part of what makes the style sexy
The finishing piece to this look is a fascinator - a small headpiece adorned with feathers and jewels
Kate is obsessed with these fancy, tiny headdresses and as a result, women in the U.S. are beginning to try this fashion-forward look on for size
This hairstyle may not be office-appropriate, but it's perfect for the weekend -- possibly to wear to a birthday party or girls' night out.
Products Needed to Achieve/Visuals: Fascinator (little hat), bobby pins
