Net result – fashion reverts to old style
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
