Kate Middleton's sleek brunette waves are almost as iconic as the Duchess of Cambridge herself. Her coveted 'do has long seemed out-of-reach to us mere mortals, yet her latest hair transformation is surprisingly attainable. Stepping out to attend a match at Wimbledon on July 2nd, Kate's freshly dyed caramel blonde tresses were as shiny as ever, despite recently lightening her colour.

For Day Two of the prestigious tennis tournament in London, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a dress by British designer, Suzannah, paired with an Alexander McQueen belt and basket box bag, black pumps and her favourite pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses.

Kate rarely makes changes to her hair. As far as we know, there's no royal rule preventing her from switching it up every now and then, but the Duchess of Cambridge is clearly most comfortable with shoulder-length to long hair in a rich brown that is her signature shade. Making this transformation that much more significant. 

To avoid damaging your hair we recommend adding highlights gradually. Just ask your hairstylist for a natural ombre face-framing effect. When taking the plunge to Cinnamon Blonde highlights, it is also best to incorporate a toning product into your routine to keep away unwanted yellow and brassy tones, keeping your blonde looking clean and just like you've been to the salon. Try Evo's Fabuloso colour care conditioner in Caramel.

Looking for more spring hair inspiration? Kaia Gerber just chopped off all her hair.
