Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has had her haircare secrets revealed by her hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker
The 36-year-old royal is set to arrive in Stockholm on Tuesday, 30 January to begin her royal tour of Sweden and Norway alongside her husband Prince William, and in a snap shared on social media, it was revealed that her daily hair routine for the trip will be no small feat.
Amanda Cook Tucker took to her private Instagram account to share a picture of a whole host of hair products, including 13 different hairbrushes, six combs, three sets of curling irons and straighteners, and two hairdryers.
The snap was captioned: “Think that’s everything! #worktrip #packing. (sic)”
However, the rare glimpse into the work that goes into perfecting Catherine’s hair isn’t likely to happen again, as shortly after posting the photo, Amanda removed her Instagram account entirely from the website.
According to Hello! magazine, most of the products featured in the snap are under £20 (R336), with Catherine’s shampoo, Kiehl’s Crème with Silk Groom, costing £18 (R302), and her holding spray, L’Oreal Elnett hairspray, priced at just £3.98 (R67)
Amanda could have a lot less hair to deal with on this trip though, as it was recently reported that Duchess Catherine – who has four-year-old son George, two-year-old daughter Charlotte, and is currently expecting her third child with her spouse – chopped off seven inches of her tresses in order to donate them to the children’s cancer charity Little Princess Trust.
Catherine is said to have had the idea whilst her 30-year-old hairdresser Joey, who works for Richard Ward Hair in Chelsea, was cutting her tresses during a private session at Kensington Palace.
A royal source said: “Four months ago Joey persuaded her it was time to take off some of her hair; he said it was just getting too long. While Joey was snipping away the idea came to her of doing some good with it rather than throwing it away.
“She mentioned it to Joey, who thought it was a brilliant idea. It was sent using someone else’s name, so that the trust didn’t know it was from a royal source – they just thought it was from a female donor in the Kensington area.”
