The Duchess of Cambridge is the woman we want to be when it comes to hair. Even though she's had a whirlwind of a year so far (having a baby and all), her blowdries have never fallen flat. We have had plenty of opportunities to see her hair on parade (like the above look with fascinator from a solo appearance in June). Today, we're taking a look back at Kate's crowning glory from before Prince George arrived to her first formal solo appearance post-birth.
