I have to admit that I’ve yet to be sucked into the Royal Wedding Craze. Likely I’ll be more into it a week or so before the wedding, but in the meantime the rest of the world is anxiously awaiting the fairy tale wedding! Tonight William & Kate premieres on Lifetime Television. This made for tv movie features Camilla Ludington (a natural blonde, she’s Kate in the above left picture) as Kate Middleton. If they can make her look more like Kate, the hair stylists involved are sure to have some great tips for the rest of us!
Read on to see how they did it.
Hairstylist RaMona Fleetwood created Camilla’s look for the movie. RaMona began her look by changing Camilla’s original blonde hair color to match that of Kate Middleton’s hair.
To style, RaMona applied a dime size amount of Orchids Oil by White Sands from roots to ends before each blow dry. Next, she sprayed White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Styling Spray at the root area and set Camilla’s hair on jumbo hot rollers for volume. After makeup, RaMona removed the hot rollers and spiral wrapped small sections around a 1 ¼ inch curling iron alternating the direction of each curl. This technique helped create the natural waves and curls Kate Middleton wears. To finish, RaMona sprayed her hair with IT&LY Pure Hair Eco non-aerosol Hairspray for hold. To control fly-a-ways picked up by high definition with back lighting, RaMona carried a bottle of IT&LY Pure Water Drops to smooth any tiny, loose hairs with her fingertips.
For the infamous runway look, RaMona began with dry hair, creating a side part. Next, she lightly sprayed the roots and hair shaft with White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Styling Spray. To create the curl and texture, she then took small sections and slightly twisted them as she rolled them on 2 sets of hot rollers. The bang area was set off base and over directed to achieve a “Veronica Lake” bang. After 20 minutes, RaMona removed the hot rollers and shook the curls to loosen them. For hold, she sprayed them with IT&LY Hair Eco Non-aerosol Hairspray.
IT&LY Pure Water Drops were used to smooth down any fly-a-ways while the rest of the casts’ up-do’s for the runway scenes; RaMona relied upon White Sands Infinity Hairspray.
