Have you ever noticed that come rain, shine, or ridiculous hat, Kate Middleton’s hair always looks perfect? With locks like that, it’s no wonder she decided to wear them down on her wedding day. As former Miss Chattanooga and a career pageant gal, I know my way around a set of hot rollers, and am willing to share my tips with all those Kate-wannabes out there. Step 1: Start with the best set: the Remington Style Envy Ionic Rollers ($19.99).
2). Section your hair in one- to two-inch sections and spray on a hair spray like L’Oreal’s Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray ($14.99). Brush the hair two to three times to evenly spread the hairspray, then start the roller halfway down the hair, starting with the bottom sections. Slide it all the way to the ends, then roll in. Keep the rollers in until they’ve cooled completely, then style naturally by running your fingers through your hair.
3). To achieve bouncy waves, go over any flat pieces of hair left after the rollers with a 2″ CeramicTi Tourmaline Spring Iron ($39.99, down from $54.99). For an effortless look like Kate’s, don’t curl the very end of the hair.
