Princess Kate Middleton has great hair -- and she always has even before she officially became a Princess. Always shiny, sometimes in hats or pulled back, Kate's tresses give us hair envy. The styles seem effortless and attainable -- fit for busy moms. Which is why we had to closely examine the many different looks of her locks.

Such an icon for style, Kate loves to wear her hair down accentuated the bounce of her brown hair. But her updos and pull backs are also so elegant and lovely that she can inspire looks for every occasion.

Check out 20 of Kate's most enviable hairstyles.

Which one is your favorite?

  • Hat hair ... of the best kind.

    Hat head usually isn't a good thing, unless of course you are Kate Middleton. How she manages to wear that hat and have the silkiest hair is beyond me. Must be because she's royal.

  • Bounce.

    Just after delivering baby number two, Princess Kate steps out looking like she's in a hair commerical. Perfect bounce in those locks.

  • Perfect blowout.

    So elegant. Fit for a princess, this chignon is such a classic hairstyle. Kate is wearing hers to one side.

  • Princess ponytail.

    Kate's hair here is all pulled back into a mid-ponytail with her own hair wrapped around the holder. It's a more polished way to wear this simple style.

  • Half up, half down.

    Kate's hair is perfectly pulled back at the crown and secured in a ponytail with her own hair wrapped around it (a trick she likes a lot). How lovely! And it's a great way to keep your hair out of your face while still wearing it down.

  • Tucked French braid.

    To match that stunning gown, Princess Kate wore a tucked French braid. J'adore! Princess Eugenie's hair looks amazing, too.

  • Loose French braid.

    This very romantic hairstyle -- a loose French braid -- was worn by Kate to attend The Royal Variety Performance. It is here where she met One Direction's Harry Styles, another person we have a bit of hair envy over.

    Behold the low ponytail, easy to do, and yet so enchanting with Kate's wavy ends.

  • Pulled back layers.

    This fun twist on a half up, half down look is done with two ponytails leaving a lot of the hair down. It seems Kate tucked the one pony up and over the other giving it a lot of texture.

  • Cascading waves.

    The way Kate's waves cascade down her back is just stunning.

  • Tucked back.

    Kate's side part is accentuated with the way she tucks her hair behind her ear, even pulling it all over to one side. Pretty, pretty Princess.

    Kate received a Ngai Tahu welcome in New Zealand allowing us to view her gorgeous twist into a mini braid in her half up, half down hairstyle. Adorable.

    In case you thought brunette was boring, here is proof the haircolor is anything but. Kate's brown is enviable with it's highlights and tones.

    I need to know all the products Kate uses. Her hair has such great texture and body and shine.

  • Straight.

    Kate's not really a pin-straight hair kind of girl, but she does sometimes have a gorgeous blow-out that showcases her healthy mane.

  • Bumped ponytail.

    Slick back ponytails are pretty, but a bumped up one adds a little extra excitement. I adore this look on Kate.
