Kate Middleton’s hairdresser Richard Ward sits on a £1million post-lockdown jackpot
The Duchess of Cambridge‘s hairdresser is sitting on a £1 million post-lockdown jackpot after receiving an astonishing 4,000 pre- booking requests.
Richard Ward, who has been in charge of Kate’s locks since before her marriage to Prince William ten years ago, said he was ‘really excited’ about reopening his salon in London‘s Sloane Square on April 12.
The average cut and half-head of colour is rather more than a snip at about £275, meaning that the pent-up demand could be worth seven figures.

Mr Ward told The Mail on Sunday: ‘We’ve had about 4,000 emails – that’s how many appointments were pending.
‘We are only opening the phone lines next week and we haven’t been allowing people to book online yet. We’ve had an extra 1,000 waiting for a haircut since last year’s lockdown.’
