When Duchess Catherine changes up her hair even the slightest bit, we have to investigate. After sporting side-parted waves for years, she recently switched to a center part (left), which had folks buzzing. So we reached out to London stylists to weigh in on the latest look — and what should come next.
“It looks like her hair has become a lot more informal, more relaxed with the middle parting,” Lee Radley, creative style director at Nicky Clarke, tells PEOPLE of the long center-parted style she debuted earlier this week. “There’s almost a boho, hippie chic look going on.”
But Radley doesn’t foresee her pulling a Jennifer Lawrence and making a major chop anytime soon. “I don’t think she would ever cut her hair short. I think William likes her hair long,” he shares. “It’s her crowning glory. So many people say to me ‘Wow, she’s got great hair.’ I just think she is a long-haired kind of girl.”
