Another Look At The Queen’s Hair
Fans got another look at Queen Elizabeth’s new hairstyle in another post from the royal family’s Instagram account, captioned, “The Queen today received Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley, Governor of New South Wales, Australia for an Audience at Windsor Castle.”
“I love the Queen’s new hairstyle!!!” one royal fan wrote. Another commented, “The queen looks happy and in good health today. Long live the queen.” So, who’s behind Queen Elizabeth’s new ‘do?
Angela Kelly, The Woman Behind The Queen’s Hairstyles
Angela Kelly, the Queen’s Personal Advisor and Curator, recently shared that she has been in charge of cutting the queen’s hair during the COVID-19 lockdowns. “From March 2020 onwards I washed The Queen’s hair every week, set and styled it, and even trimmed it when needed. My team named it Kelly’s Salon,” she joked.
“The Queen knew I was nervous, and during the first two weeks I was shaking,” Kelly continued. “I had only done her hair once or twice before while on board the Royal Yacht Britannia. The Queen was so kind as she advised me on the very specific way to put the rollers in.” Queen Elizabeth is seen less and less these days, but it’s nice to know that she’s continuing to stay camera-ready, from fancy dresses, to new haircuts!
