What is the bowl method?

The bowl method involves washing your hair over a bowl.

  • After shampooing and conditioning your hair as normal fill a bowl full of water.
  • Brush leave in conditioner through your hair, and then apply a curl cream.
  • Dip your hair into the bowl and catch the water running off your hair.
  • Scrunch the hair upwards in your fists. Repeat the dipping and scrunching steps another three times.

A pioneering beauty treatment is thought to have been adopted by none other than Kate Middleton. 

Experts believe the Duchess of Cambridge has opted for the laminated brows treatment.

Tori Rosero, make-up artist and founder of Glowblade Academy told Express.co.uk: “Kate Middleton’s fluffy brows definitely look like they have been laminated to create a natural, yet fluffy and perfectly set brow.

“When brows are laminated we use a cream to set brows into the desired position, so Kate’s therapist could definitely have done this to create the fluffy and textured, yet immaculately groomed look she has now.”
