Clearly, Kate Middleton isn’t American, but I feel her hair is fast-becoming an honorary national treasure anyway. Here’s how she wore it to visit an M-PACT Plus Counselling programme at Blessed Sacrament School today: Half up and dreamy.

Her hair was pulled back into sections, with the left tucked down under the right and pinned. So simple. And she’s worn something very similar to this before, which means we can safely call it a go-to style for her. And you can see why. It’s elegant and cute, and it gets her hair away from her face when she’s out in the wind. Everything a duchess could want in a hairstyle.
