Luckily, this chic hairstyle can be recreated with a quick and easy-to-follow hair hack. Michael Van Clarke, a famous hairstylist who styled the late Princess Diana’s hair in the ‘80s, exclusively sat down with People and revealed how Princess Catherine achieved this flattering hairdo.
Clarke shared a list of styling tools one needs to create the same loose curly look. “You need to use large barrelled tongs, flat irons, or—even better—use a no-heat version by wrapping your hair around soft sponge rollers or even a toweling robe belt, which is a technique you see on TikTok a lot! It’s actually very easy to do! It’s basically replicating the old idea of wrapping hair in rags, but it works,” he revealed to the magazine.
For the bangs, the award-winning stylist recommends a tip or two on how to style the fringes, noting they require a “bit more styling maintenance.” Clarke told People, “I would use a dryer and a round brush, but a heated brush may be easier at home. Just be careful not to put too much curl in. This look on the Princess of Wales is subtle—it’s meant to look like it fell naturally like that.”
