The Very Normal Reason Why Kate Middleton Cut Her Hair

Lisa Patulny

Kate Middleton’s hair is, to use a very apt pun, her crowning glory. The royal’s signature blowdry has been copied far and wide, and the fringe she adopted in September did nothing but enhance her modern-but-regal look further. Not one to reinvent her hair on the regular (if it ain't broke...), we thought we’d seen the last of Middleton’s strand shakeups for a while. Not so—the royal is the latest to go and get herself a sophisticated lob.

According to People, her new shoulder-grazing haircut might have more to do with being a busy working mother than anything else. See? She’s practical, just like us. Middleton’s hairdresser Richard Ward described the chop as: “A practical style and a great option for a mum who has had long hair, who has a busy life and is short on time.” We’re guessing her fresh ‘do was intended to ease Middleton’s busy schedule—like all lobs, it’d certainly cut down on styling time.

Another way to fast-track your blowdrying time? Apply a healthy mist of Matrix Oil Wonders Flash Blow Dry Oil ($17) to strands before you style.
