How to create a topsy-ponytail like Kate Middletons royal tour style

We’re loving seeing Kate Middleton’s royal Caribbean tour hair looks. It’s only day four but she’s already debuted a sleek day look with a mirror-like shine, plus sported her signature waves and a classic Kate ponytail. Now yesterday, in a look we haven’t seen her wear before, Kate showed off a clever twisted updo – and it’s the perfect style for a hot and humid climate.

The name of this style is topsy ponytail, which essentially means the hair has been put into a pony before being twisted through to create a loop. It’s a quick way to upgrade an updo, and gives a very elegant effect. By twisting the pony tightly into a loop, Kate is also cleverly avoiding too many heat-induced flyaways.

We’re not sure if she considered this but the look is almost regal, with the twists creating a crown-like effect on her head. Very suitable for her royal tour, we think. We don’t imagine Kate spends much time scrolling through TikTok, but topsy twists are also a big trending style amongst the #hairtok community.

If you want to see the style being created, TikTok account @simplebeautyhacks has a video titled “fancy ponytails for beginners” showing exactly how to create Kate’s look at home. It’s also worth noting that you might want to style your hair into waves, or straighten your lengths to make them sleek, before you create the ponytail. It looks like this is something Kate has also done.

The Duchess is truly finding her stride when it comes to sophisticated hairstyles – and we’re delighted to see her straying away from the bouncy blow-dry and more into new sleeker territory (though we will always love her iconic Wimbledon waves!)

For arecent visit to the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in London , she looked demure with seriously long and sleek lengths. Despite her hair looking so glossy, Kate managed to keep plenty of volume at the roots, while her ends gently curled under for a bit of added body and movement.

We’re not the only ones thinking Kate has the hair of our dreams either. Twitter users were also quick to dish out praise on the Duchess for her new ‘do.

“I can only dream of having hair as coiffed and perfect as Kate Middleton,” one user mused on Twitter, echoing all of our thoughts.

A second agreed, chiming in with: “Kate’s hair!!’ and several heart-eye emojis.

We bet the fans will be loving this twisted look, then!
