Net re­sult – fash­ion re­verts to old style

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

LON­DON: They’ve always been de­cid­edly more Coronation Street’s Ena Sharples than royal wear.

But hairnets are the talk of the fash­ion world af­ter the Duchess of Cam­bridge sported one on an of­fi­cial en­gage­ment.

As Kate braved a windswept war me­mo­rial in France last week, her per­sonal hair­dresser Amanda Cook Tucker took ex­tra pre­cau­tions to make sure that the duchess’s elab­o­rate chignon was kept on place.

The hair­net was hard to spot un­der Kate’s jaunty black hat. But close-up pho­tos show the net was there, match­ing her brunette hair. Hairnets have seen some­thing of a resur­gence in re­cent months – Kate Moss’s younger sis­ter Lot­tie wore one on the red car­pet at Cannes. The se­cret of avoid­ing looking like a woman who spends Sun­day after­noons scrub­bing her doorstep, ap­par­ently, is to find one made from fine silk to help cre­ate a more dis­creet and chic look.The dis­creet hair­net is not the first time the duchess has adopted a hair ac­ces­sory that harks back to pre­vi­ous gen­er­a­tions. Last month she was spot­ted, off-duty, wear­ing an 1980s-style Alice band. – Daily Mail
