KATE MIDDLETON is pregnant with her third child; the Duchess of Cambridge is expected to show her bump for the first time this evening at a charity gala.
The 35-year-old, who is married to Prince William, is famed for her long, thick hair. Now the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her third child, will her hair change thanks to hormones?
Johanne Herald, Senior Master Stylist at Charles Worthington Salons explained how pregnancy affects a woman's hair.
"After giving birth or when stopping breast feeding, women will experience one of the 'hair everywhere' cycles.
"Some women may not notice this as much and will only realise once they find short bits of hair (new hair) around their hairline.
"As annoying as this can be, it is a great sign that the hair lost has reproduced from the follicle and will grow."
Jo said many women opt for a "fringe or face framing layers" so the shorter hairs don't look so obvious.
She explained during pregnancy hair loss will slow down making hair look and feel thicker.
"This is due to the baby taking nutrients and vitamins like calcium and keratin from the hair components," Johanne revealed.
