The Most Iconic Royal Hairstyles Over the Decades
Queen Elizabeth II
The Queen’s coronation on 2 June 1953 at Westminster Abbey in London. The beginning of Her Majesty’s signature style - a carefully curled bouffant adorned with The Imperial State Crown. This exquisite royal accessory contains 2,868 diamonds, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, 269 pearls and 4 rubies.

21 year old Princess Anne, the Queen’s daughter, adorned the cover of the September Issue of British Vogue in 1971. Her fashionable 60s and 70s beehive updo style set the stage for her signature style to come.
The Princess of Wales’ golden locks paved the way for the biggest hair trends of the '80s and '90s. Known as The Lady Diana Haircut, this style shown in 1985 speaks to the princess’ youthful, winged hair with a cascade of chin-grazing layers.
Sophie, Countess of Sussex
On her wedding day in June 1999, where she tied the knot with Prince Edward St George's Chapel at Windsor, the countess was spotted with a feathery, blonde pixie cut and fringe - topped with the diamond Anthemion tiara, a piece customised from the Queen’s very own private collection. Sophie has fine and glass-like hair, perfect for MONPURE!
As she posed for the press to announce her engagement to Prince William in 2010, Kate Middleton introduced us to her perfectly blow-dried, bouncy and glossy hair. The Duchess of Cambridge has since reigned supreme with her effortless and shiny blowout that is an inspiration to brunettes everywhere.
Adorable daughter to William and Kate, Princess Charlotte showed off a beautiful half-up twist in her long brunette locks to celebrate her 7th birthday in May 2022. We can’t wait to see how her gorgeous locks evolve in the future.

Keep your Styling Safe
The bouncy, coiffed and cascading curls synonymous with the British monarchy are seamlessly mastered with the use of a hair dryer and a classic set of rollers. However, royal-inspired heat styling needs some robust protection to safeguard your healthy strands against unwanted damage.
MONPURE’s Shampoo + Conditioner duo, formulated with pioneering vegan silk peptides, repairs thermal damage by 72%, and creates a breathable protective barrier on both the hair and scalp. The luxury, lightweight formulas ensure that your hair and scalp are supremely nourished and protected without being weighed down, allowing your elegant styles to reach new heights.

This award-winning, luxury formula fortifies hair from the root to ensure your flawless, royal-inspired style is perfectly prepped for celebration.
