If you needed yet another reason to think that Kate Middleton would totally be your best friend, an "insider source" revealed to Us Weekly that the duchess still makes regular visits to her pre-royal salon. Kate even "insists on visiting the salon rather than having them come to her," the source said.
It's been a little over a year since she officially became a royal, yet Kate remains loyal to the trusty salon she's been attending for nearly a decade to get her covetable blowouts (which start at $75 -- mere pennies in the luxury hair care realm). Does Kate's conflicting awesomeness and normalcy know no bounds?
Even though the British social calendar is pretty jam-packed, Kate manages to find time to do plenty of regular-girl things. She's become known for her High Street shopping habit, sifting though Zara racks and waiting in line to pay at Topshop. She goes to the grocery store, walks her dog and even roughs it in the woods during camping trips.
Kate not only appreciates a bouncy blowout a few times a week, she also dabbles in eco-friendly beauty during her hair color appointments, opting for an organic vegetable-based hair dye during a September visit. Can't you already see yourself arm-in-arm with the duchess, strolling through a flea market or dropping off your dry-cleaning together?
