First clothes and now hair? She's setting all kinds of trends.

Kate Middleton's style and beauty captivated America as she toured Canada and the Los Angeles area with that guy she married in April (what's his name again?). We at Lock & Mane, much like the rest of the world, have had a huge hair crush on Kate since the moment her engagement to Prince William was announced. And her hair perfection on this North American tour has known no bounds. The tour included a polo match, a red carpet event and numerous state ceremonies and the Duchess consistently outshone everyone else in attendance.
Here are our picks for Kate's best hair looks during her stateside tour.

Kate stunned in an Alexander McQueen gown and her signature loose, flowing locks at the BAFTA Brits to Watch Gala in Los Angeles. This 'do is all about the shine. Word on the street is that the Duchess attributes her super sleek and shiny mane to frequent deep conditioning treatments!
The Princess attended the Mission Serve 'Hiring Our Heroes' Job Fair in California this weekend donning a half up style reminiscent of her wedding 'do but with a small classic bun fastening the half-up portion. We love how the mini chignon brings a subtle elegance to the look while the loose portion keeps it from being too stuffy.

Stop the presses! Kate sported a sophisticated updo and a stunning purple Issa dress at the National Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa. This may very well be the first time we've seen her wearing an updo. But really, with hair like that we can understand her penchant for long, flowing styles-it would be a shame to hide it too often in overly structured pinned-up 'dos.

Kate rocked another gorgeous half-up style in Ottawa but kept the look relaxed and playful. We love the volume at the crown and the beautifully curled pieces fastened with delicate clips.

Kate's perfect ponytail in Prince Edward Island, Canada has volume and bounce. The key to this style is the softly curled ends and slightly teased crown which keep it from looking too severe.
kate in hat
Last but not least, Kate wore a cowboy hat at the Stampede Parade in Calgary. There isn't too much to say on the style except this: who could look this adorable in an oversized, ridiculous-looking cowboy hat? The Duchess of Cambridge, that's who. Kate donned a Temperley blouse and a 100 watt smile.
Sigh. We love her.
