Kate managed to optimize this look while dressed up in her Alice Temperley dress as well as in a more casual setting in her Topshop dress. While the 'do comes across as super complicated, Sheenon Olson, celebrity hairstylist and creative director at ATMA Beauty in Miam, shares with HELLO! how to achieve the classic braided bun with a twist without going to a salon.

STEPS TO ACHIEVING THIS LOOK:

1. Part your hair. If you have long enough bangs (fringe), also include those in the part.

2. Once you have parted your hair, split the hair down the middle and french braid both sides. The french braid will begin just behind the fringe and work its way to the nape of your neck.

3. Once you have these two braids, add a powder like Expanda Dust to give the braid grip. Then you will take your fingers to pull the braid apart to give it that loose deconstructed look.

4. Now take the two braids and using bobby pins position them into a low bun.

5. Drop out the fringe and split it at your part. Twist each strand and join both behind the head. Secure the hair with two bobby pins in an X to make sure they won't budge.

6. Finish with a light hair spray and get ready to take your new royal-inspired look out on the town.
