Kate's Hair Is 'Overdone' Says Former Royal Hairdresser

A former Royal hairdresser has waded into the most controversial issue of our times by declaring that Kate Middleton's hair is 'a little overdone.'

In the old days, criticising the Queen's glossy locks would have been a head-removing offense.

But Denise McAdam, who was awarded the Royal Victorian Medal by the Queen in 2010 for, as she puts it, "35 years of keeping my mouth shut” is fortunate to live in gentler times.

In a new interview to promote a TV show, Hair, which she has been cast in, she also describes Princess Anne as “the scary one” of the family.

Speaking to Radio Times, Ms. McAdam said, “Princess Anne was the scary one, particularly when I was young… It was a simple up-do, so I just used to go in, close my eyes and do it as quickly as possible.”

Ms. McAdam, 55, described herself as “a good friend of the Duchess of Cambridge,” but added, “I think her hair is wonderful, maybe a little overdone at times.”
