Justin Bieber once had the most discussed celebrity hairdo. Now, Kate Middleton’s wedding style has become a global talking point, with fashionistas desperate to know how she will wear her hair on her Big Day.

Ms Middleton is hotly tipped to go for a ‘half-up / half-down’ style – a compromise between wearing it loose and having it all put up.

Her hairdresser, Richard Ward, reportedly said: “Every bride's hair on their wedding day should reflect their look throughout the year. Kate's such a natural girl, so no stuffy up-dos for her.”

Salon Director Yasmin, from the Rainbow Room International in George Square Glasgow, showed us how to create the simple, yet glamorous look, using model Katie McNicol, who bears a striking resemblance to Kate.

Yasmin put large rollers into her hair and explained: “Take the first section right at the hairline and take about an inch of hair for each section. Wrap hair round the roller and continue this right down to nape of neck, then do the same at sides.”

Yasmin was using TheO by Cloud Nine rollers, but for those of us who don’t quite have a Royal budget, large velcro or heated rollers should suffice.

You leave the rollers for about 20 minutes then take them out and gently backcomb the hair at the root, smoothing over with a comb.

Use your fingers to smooth out the curl and bounce then put spray over the whole hair to hold in place.

The next step is to pin in the sides with a few kirbies then leave the back section hanging over, lightly pinned in place.

You can finish the style with a diamante clip, although Kate will probably have diamonds on the day!

*The dress Katie is wearing is Hemera by Jenny Packham and is available at Anne Priscilla bridal shop, Miller Street Glasgow. It costs £5250. For more information visit www.annepriscillabridal.co.uk
