Any bride wants the perfect hairstyle for her wedding day, whether that means an updo, braids, or Hollywood waves. The thing is, it can be tough to find a good source of inspiration... but only if you've never heard of Kate Middleton. Having created a stunning beauty look as the world's most obsessed-over bride ever, the Duchess of Cambridge has more than earned her stripes as a bridal beauty role model, especially when it comes to that globally adored mane of hers.

Not only is the mother of one impressively adept with a blow-dryer and round brush, she also has a knack with elegant chignons, too (or knows how to politely articulate her ideas to her stylist at least).

So, if you're planning to be a hair-up kind of bride, find out how to recreate Kate's sophisticated style ahead of your big day by following the tutorial below.

Step one

Apply a fixing mousse evenly through damp hair and blow-dry with a paddle brush.

Step two

Once dried, use a curling wand to create large waves throughout the body of your hair. This will enhance the texture of your final 'do.

Top tip - Always ensure you curl away from your face and stick to the lower two thirds of your hair.

Step three

For added volume, use a fine-tooth comb to tease the top section of your hair and then mist with hairspray.

Step four

Split your hair into two sections horizontally - top and bottom. Pin the top section away for the moment and concentrate on the bottom section. Twist the lengths inwards to form a bun shape and secure with as many pins as you need, the exact amount varies depending on the thickness and texture of your hair.

Step five

Twist the hair from the remaining top section to form a smaller messy chignon and secure it directly on top of the large one.

Step six

Mist generously with hairspray for added shine and hold.

That's it! Will you be walking down the aisle with a hairstyle à la Kate Middleton?
