Your Perfect Work Ponytail, Courtesy of Kate Middleton Herself

Kate Middleton's classy 'do is the ponytail of our dreams—perfect for work, a business lunch, drinks out, or a formal affair. We tapped Halli Bivona from the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman to help us craft this saught-after royal style.

Step 1: Smooth hair with a blowdryer, round brush, and anti-frizz product (we recommend: Shu Uemura Satin Design)

Step 2: Take a U-shaped section of hair at the top of your head and tease underneath, then smooth with a boar bristle paddle brush.

Step 3: Tilt your back slightly and use the paddle brush to gather the hair into a mid-height ponytail and secure with an elastic.

Step 4: Break the ponytail into 4-5 sections of hair and curl with a 1 1/4 inch curling iron. Make sure to curl each end in the same direction, let each section cool, and comb out.

Step 5: Take a half inch section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic at the base of the ponytail. Secure with hair pins.

Step 6: Finish the style using a light hold hair spray.
