Kate Middleton hair inspiration

It's no secret that we love the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate continues to wow the world with her fashion choices (everything she wears immediately gets a "sold out" sticker), but we think 2014 should be the year she changes things up just a bit, starting with her hair. No more safe curled-at-the ends, or half-up half-down styles. We found 12 runway and celebrity hairstyles we think fit the bill. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's top fashion moments

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: A crown of braids

Kate may have a few diamond-encrusted crowns to choose from, but since those aren’t really suitable for the down-to-earth Duchess on a day-to-day basis, we say switch it up for a feminine crown braid instead. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's best looks of all time

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: The messy ponytail

Kate’s look is always polished, smooth and her hair is always gleaming. But sometimes, a little bit of rough texture adds interest, style and body. Kate could sport this messy ponytail to a gallery opening, or when visiting one of her local charities. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's best evening looks

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: The side ponytail

Who doesn't need a little inspiration from the always classy Diane Kruger? Next time Kate sports a fascinator we hope she pairs it with a curly (her go-to hairstyle) side pony. Minus the ear cuff, of course. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's best looks of all time

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: A slicked back look

We know this look is probably not going to happen, but with gorgeous features like Kate, we’d love to see her hair swept back in a semi-wet look (to be super on trend for spring). It’s a bit undone, a bit messy, but also with just enough edge. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's best evening looks

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: Hair accessories

An easy way for Kate to be on trend but still fit for royalty? This incredibly soft and romantic look from Dolce & Gabbana spring 2014. The key elements here are those pretty gems and flowers tucked into or around the bun, or as a pretty crown. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's top fashion moments

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: Retro waves

Put down the curling iron, Kate! It's time to switch up your beloved curls now and then, and a smooth retro wave like one that Jessica Alba rocks frequently, paired with Kate’s signature dark-rimmed eyes would be stunning. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's best evening looks

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: Long, straight hair

Kate's thick mane of glossy brunette locks would look even more enviable if it was smoothed to perfection and impossibly straight, no? Just imagine the shine. GALLERY: Kate Middleton's best looks of all time

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: An easy beach wave

Now this isn't for a meeting-with-the-Queen kind of hairstyle, but for Kate's casual days pushing Prince George's pram, a carefree beachy wave would be effortless and so natural Get Kate Middleton's classic beauty look

Kate Middleton hair inspiration: A topknot

Ok, a lose, casual topknot just won't do for someone who will one day be queen. But we would LOVE to see Duchess Kate in one. Add polish with a braid up the back and not a strand out of place, and this could be a regal evening look for Kate. Get Kate Middleton's classic beauty look
