Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge may have had “subtle” hair extensions and colour, claims expert Inanch Emir.

Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge’s “vibrant, bouncy” hair could be down to extensions, claims a top stylist.

The brunette royal, known as Kate Middleton before she married Prince William, is widely admired for her lustrous locks. Catherine recently showed off a new hairstyle featuring a flattering fringe as she returned to royal duties following the birth of her daughter Charlotte. Celebrity hair extension expert Inanch Emir believes Catherine’s mane may have been given a special boost in recent months.

“Having looked at before and after pictures, it is my professional opinion that Kate Middleton has been experimenting with extensions as her hair has looked more vibrant and bouncy in recent months,” Inanch told Britain’s Now magazine.

Catherine has also opted for a shorter length, but the mother-of-two’s locks have remained full of bounce and shine. Inanch claims this is the result of hair extensions which have been introduced slowly in different stages.

“It started off so subtle it was difficult to tell, but her hair seems thicker – she may have had around 100-120 strands and colours too,” the hair expert added.

Catherine is renowned for her glossy locks, which she prefers to keep below her shoulders and in soft waves. She has even been the recipient of the title of Best Celebrity Hair in the past.

The 33-year-old royal isn’t the only famous face to apparently rely on help in the hair department. Little Mix singer Jesy Nelson has also benefited from some extra strands, according to Inanch.

“Jesy goes for both length and volume to create the look that she has become known for,” the extension expert explained. “She enjoys having big, bouncy hair achieved with hair extensions, as it represents her bubbly personality.”
