And here we were thinking Questionable Bangs-gate was going to be the big Kate Middleton hair story of 2015…

In the final days of the year, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with what some experts (us) are labelling a LLOB, which is a Longer Long Bob, for those not familiar with the parlance. 

Not only is this style, debuted at a charity event in London, the shortest we’ve ever seen the Duchess’ locks, it’s also the lightest colour she’s experimented with. (To really grasp how far along the road to blonde this is, go look at pictures from Kate’s wedding). 

Which all begs the question: Is Kate on some sort of 5 step plan toward breaking the internet with a platinum pixie in 2016?!
