Kate Middleton news: How to make like Kate and cut your children’s hair at home

Kate Middleton appeared in a video on January 28 speaking to four other people about the challenges parents face during lockdown. She mentioned that having to cut her children’s hair was an unexpected task that she now has to do.

Tatiana continues: “There are some basic hair cutting scissors on Amazon for less than £10, and they are a great investment as they can last a long time if they are not used for anything else but hair cutting.”

The hair stylist explains that there are different techniques to cutting a boy’s hair and a girl’s hair.

A girl’s hair is easier to cut, according to Tatiana, and it is better if the hair is damp.

Tatiana says: “Dampen the hair with a spray or a wet towel, but be aware that wet hair is more elastic so it can seem longer than it is.”

Next, when cutting boys’ hair, Tatiana says it is best to move towards the ears: “Brush the hair over the ears and then do a little trim.

“And then do the back of the hair,” she adds.

If there is time, since Tatiana says it can be hard to get children to sit still for more than 15 minutes, it is worth cutting the hair at the top of the boy’s head.

“I would lift the hair from the crown area up and cut it into my fingers, creating a zig-zag effect so that the layers are not too choppy. When it’s a bit zig-zaggy on the top and on the sides, it blends together better, rather than when you cut across in a straight line,” says Tatiana.

However, if there is no time for this final part of the hairdressing process, Tatiana advises to make sure that the fringe is done first, on both a girl’s and a boy’s hair: “The front area is the most important because that’s what people will see first on video calls and so on.”
