While packing for the royal tour of Sweden and Norway, Kate’s hairstylist, Amanda Cook Tucker, took to her private Instagram account to share a brief snapshot of the Kate’s preferred hair products. The British hairstylist, who has been working with the royal since 2012, captioned the shot of the meticulously laid out products: “Think that’s everything! #worktrip #packing.”
It’s a rare glimpse into Kate’s grooming regime that we are likely to never see again. After she posted it, Amanda has removed her social media account.

Kate’s hairstylist cleverly packs a fragrance-free hairspray because all of those hair products could cause a headache. Amanda’s choice, Essential Maximum Hold Nonperfumed Hairspray, is a favorite in the U.K.
To tame frizz and flyaways while increasing lustrous shine, Kate uses Kiel’s Silk Groom Serum. Another product appears to be from silicone-free range Living Proof.

Who is Kate Middleton’s hairstylist?
So, who is the woman behind the one of the most glorious heads of hair? Here’s everything you need to know about Amanda Cook Tucker.
She was Prince George’s second visitor in hospital when he was born! The first person to greet the little newborn (aside from his mom and dad) was Sir Marcus Setchell, the now-retired gynecologist to the Royal Household, Amanda was next to welcome him to the world. The hairstylist was famously photographed entering the hospital before grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton.
Amanda has been part of the royal family entourage for years. She’s been working with Kate Middleton since 2012, but she has been cutting Prince William and Prince Harry’s hair since they were little boys. It’s possibly she cuts Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s hair, too.
She earns the big bucks! It’s been reported that back in 2012, Amanda was earning $530 a day.
Amanda (known as “Mandy” to her friends) cuts and styles Kate’s hair in her Kensington Palace home. Not only does she travel with Kate, Amanda visits the royal at home to trim her hair in private.
