Has Kate changed her hairstylist? On June 19th, Kate was photographed going to the Rossano Ferretti salon. I think women have to change their stylist every now and again. I know some women who have stuck with the same stylist for years, but I think that takes a special personality. We know that Kate has been with Richard Ward for years, but perhaps after all the unpleasantness of the Pryce breakaway she was anxious for change. Kate was photographed through the window at Ward's salon in September of 2011 getting her famous blow-out with curls:
Her hair stylists made headlines when James Pryce, chief stylist at Ward's London salon, took flight after disagreements with Ward. James Pryce was reputed to be the one who styled Kate's hair on the big day, and traveled with her on her first overseas tour--Canada 2011. He left the salon in November of 2011 amid controversy that he was trying to take Pips and Carole with him.
Remember when Carole was photographed lunching with Pippa? She was carrying a Rossano Ferretti bag. If this were a murder mystery we'd definitely have smelled a rat...
Rumor also has it that Ward was the one who gave Kate the fringe that caused such a curffuffle in the last year. Maybe that is why she moved on. I had a hair stylist who made an irretrievable disaster before a really big date I had. I am not saying I don't like her, just that I never went back... Given the fact that Carole obviously goes to Ferretti, that Pippa has been spotted there, and Kate has now been papped going to the salon I think it is safe to say she has made the switch. That being said, anyone who gets her hair done as often as Kate can afford to spread the love, so we may see her patronize both salons.
I just love it when pictures of Kate land in a magazine that is hard to get a hold of. As of right now, this is the only shot I can get my hands on--feel free to share if you have better ones. When more become available, and they will, I will post them for your viewing pleasure. It seems like she has switched, which wouldn't be so shocking for the average person, but the very high publicity that Ward and Pryce garnered makes this special. As is seemingly every detail in Kate's life. :)
I did close the blog for a few hours today to switch things up a little. The results being less than satisfactory, expect more changes in the next week or so. I guess I am getting restless in the run-up to Baby Cambridge's arrival...and we needed a makeover in general. Sometimes a girl's gotta change her layout...or her hair stylist.
