Rose Byrne Gives the Duchess Hair Advice

Snooki might be doling out pregnancy wisdom to the Duchess of Cambridge, but Rose Byrne is sharing tips with Kate on that other exciting, new development in her royal life: those bangs.

Kate cut her hair last week, and who better to offer maintenance and styling advice than Byrne, who’s had bangs for almost two years. “When you’re blow-drying your hair, always do [the bangs] first. Because otherwise, at least with my hair, if I wait then they’ve already curled up and become really out of control,” Byrne recently told The Cut.

The actress went into more detail, explaining, “I just get the brush and blow-dry them flat.” Byrne then laughed and joked, “I’m sure she’s curious about what I would tell her.”

Though, as far as her own face-framing fringe goes, Byrne is actually considering getting rid of her trim. “Harry Josh, my hairdresser, just gave me a haircut yesterday. I’m just growing them out in a better way,” she says. Think Kate will follow in Bryne’s footsteps and grow out her bangs, too? Tell us: Do you prefer the Duchess with or without bangs?

If you read the article Rose never gives Kate any tips at all. No where in this article or the one it is based on does Rose even mention the name “Kate”., this article should be deleted, it is very misleading.

Who the heck is Rose Byrne and why is she giving advice to the Duchess? Hollywood!

If I was Rose I would be pretty upset right now. The article is completely misleading and taken way out of context. has changed. I prefer the magazine to the online version.

Additionally she is not a princess as mentioned so many times, she is a Duchess. She will not be a princess until Prince Charles is a King. That is how the styling of the names is done.

SERIOUSLY!! She is JUST released from the hospital from not being able to keep anything down and they are criticizing her hair! Leave her alone, she looks great considering her health. She’s human, can’t look perfect ALL the time. People is is a disappointing article.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Bangs are never a good idea. Thankfully she doesn’t have bangs.

Your magazine is a joke. Shame on you. I love when writers have nothing to write about and so instead of focusing on their lack of talent, they pick on the sick pregnant lady, who unlike you has a life. What does your hair look like? How much do you weigh? Let’s turn the microscope around on your and your talent free ass. Get new writers People.

Let’s get advice from a nobody.

This is the most ridiclous article I have ever come across. I doubt Kate is as vain as the author of this article. She just got out of the hospital!!!!!

I love Catherine The Duchess of Cambridge she is pure class & beauty.People need to leave her & Prince William alone right now .
And Shame on the Australian Disc jockeys for the pain they have caused not only to the nurse that is now dead but as caring as William & Catherine are I am sure that situation is weighing heavily on their hearts.God bless you William & Catherine .
