Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the shiniest locks of them all? A recent survey made by Kérastase on 2,000 women revealed that Kate Middleton has the most beautiful and healthiest hair. Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge has been named Britain's hair icon! So, the gorgeous mom-to-be draws attention not just due to her impeccable maternity outfits but also with her hair that has enviable bounce and body. Cheryl Cole came second and Holly Willoughby, third.

The poll also unveiled 70 per cent of women want more voluminous tresses, and when asked what one thing they would change if they could, 40 per cent said they would like thicker, fuller-looking hair.

Kérastase Ambassador Luke Hersheson said that, “Most women will be able to relate to these findings. As we enter our late teens and twenties, most women have yet to find their signature style. They are happy to try different colors, experiment with different lengths and use various tools like tongs, rollers and hair straighteners to achieve a certain look.”

According to the same survey, the '80s was the worst decade for hair while many women admitted to trying the famous Rachel cut in the '90s.

“Certain hairstyles come and go in fashion like any other trend and it’s only natural that women try and replicate the latest look. Having said that, constantly changing styles and hair color can take its toll, and as we age our hair density and condition can be affected,” Hersheson explained.

Moreover, the Kérastase survey revealed that women feel their hair is its most beautiful at the age of 29. One in ten women said they regretted three of the styles they have sported in their lives.

“As women move in to their thirties and beyond they tend to invest more in their hair and look after it using the right treatments. Most of them reach the age where they want their hair to look healthy, full of body and thicker, rather than opting for the trendiest hair which has come straight off the catwalk, ” Kérastase Ambassador Luke Hersheson said.
