Kate Middleton Spent How Much on Her Hair?!
No wonder the Duchess of Cambridge always recycles her clothes. She uses her real budget for that gorgeous mane. WATCH: Get Kate Middleton's Blowout Kate Middleton is famous for many things, including her brunette locks. Perfectly bouncy, shiny and always in place, Middleton’s signature blowout is one many women yearn to achieve. But if you really want a similar well-coifed mane, it’s going to cost you. ABC News is reporting that, according to The Daily Mail, the royal’s envious polished locks costed more than $10,000 to achieve during her recent 19-day tour of Australia and New Zealand, alongside husband Prince William and son Prince George. The news site adds this eye-popping pricetag is due to the traveling costs of her stylist coming along for the ride. And if you think that’s pretty steep, prepare to take a deep breath. It’s also been revealed Middleton’s clothing budget allegedly totaled over $100,000, but she possibly saved money by doing her own makeup. “The Daily Mail says the hair stylist Amanda Cook Tucker charges around $250 for a cut and blow dry, but charged Kate twice that since it was an overseas trip,” says ABC News.

But there are a few steps you can take at home to achieve similar results (watch the video above for more tips): “When wanting royal hair every woman must follow suit by taking those extra steps to achieve a healthy, shiny, and voluminous style,” explains celebrity stylist David Babaii on getting the Middleton blowout. “This includes monthly trims to keep the shape in check and picture-perfect condition.” READ: Want Your Hair to Look as Good as Kate's? Here's How “Washing your hair daily whenever possible is very important as leftover product residue and oils will weigh and dull hair. My motto has always been clean hair and rinsing all the shampoo and condition from your hair until it is squeaky clean.” While you could easily get a similar look by bringing in photos of Middleton’s hair to your stylist for inspiration, the blowout can also be done from the comfort of home. Just don’t forget to add one thing the royal never leaves home without. “To achieve Kate Middleton’s soft curls, turn the ends under, wrapping them around the brush, and hit them with a blast of heat followed by the cool button to set in place,” adds Babaii. “Continue until the entire head is finished, taking smaller sections at the top to create added volume.” READ: Kate Middleton Has Great Hair and She Knows It Check out Middleton’s super pricey hair from her tour down under:
