Which Royal Has the Most Popular Hairstyles of All Time
The royal family are a constant source of inspiration when it comes to fashion, etiquette and hairstyles. We’re always keen to hear about the royals’ hair and beauty tips to try and recreate some of the famous styles and beauty regimes at home. Every royal princess in history has become synonymous for their own trademark hairstyles. This is one of the factors that makes the British royal family so fascinating.
The world has always been obsessed with the women of the royal family and so far, each member has brought something new to The Firm. The British royal family is not a female-only institution but it is certainly centred around the women of the family. From Wallis Simpson, Princess Margaret, The Queen Mother, Princess Diana, Sarah Ferguson, Kate Middleton, to of course, Queen Elizabeth II, each of these powerhouse women come with their own unique hairdo and personality traits.

In recent years, shows such as Netflix The Crown has introduced a newer generation to royal names of the past. This has lead to a new found interest in different members of the royal family from the last 100 years. We’re now seeing millenials becoming obsessed over Diana’s 80s blow dry and Princess Anne’s lustrous locks of the 70s!

With this in mind, LongevitaHairTransplant.com took to YouTube to find out which royal’s hair-dos we seek to recreate the most. They searched for tutorials for each royal family member’s hairstyles, and tallied up the number of videos and total views to see which styles we favour most.

  1. Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton is also giving us major hair envy. There are 30 separate tutorial videos to help recreate her flawless hair at home, which have racked up a total of over 3.5 million views between them. As Kate and Wills are creating their own YouTube channel, fans may have their fingers crossed for some hair tutorials from Kate.
Money.co.uk recently conducted a survey on the videos fans are most excited to see on the couple’s YouTube channel. The top three contenders were: a day in the life; palace tours; and family vlogging. Salman Haqqi, personal finance expert from Money.co.uk commented:
“It’s really great to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge venturing into new social mediums to not only help elevate their campaigns and projects, but for fans to get a closer insight into their lives as their popularity appeal grows. YouTube is vast becoming one of the most effective social platforms worldwide as it connects, communicates, and reaches out to young people.”

  1. Princess Eugenie
Rounding up the top five royals’ hair we’re most jealous of is Princess Eugenie. Despite only featuring in one YouTube tutorial, the video recreating her royal wedding look has been viewed 11,300 times so far!
What do you think? The late, great Princess Diana takes the lead for having the most searched for hair tutorials on Youtube. Darling Kate Middleton comes in at a close second. Admittedly, our money would have been on either Diana or Kate but we’re also glad to see that the Queen has made it to fourth place.
Queen Elizabeth II might not have made it to the top of this list but there is no denying that our monarch has one of the most iconic hairstyles of all time. After all, not all hairstyles look that good on a coin!
