I think she does. Or at least she has blonde highlights which of course would make her dye all her hair to neutralize her color.

Yep, a special brand of American hairspray she seems to use for decades. So no Wella, Schwarzkopf, L'Oréal or other European hairsprays.

Apparantly QE2 uses Elnett hairspray. I wonder if Queen Bea uses that.

Aquanet or Finalnet would be my guess. Those were the American brands my mother used during her hairdressing career when beehives were de rigeur...and they REALLY hold up!

That's funny because I was just thinking Aqua Net. It has been around for ages, too. My granny use to use that brand!

Can't imagine Queen Beatrix with any other hairstyle but can't help but wonder how she would look with a style like the Duchess of Cornwall.

Aquanet !

My Nana used that hairspray. The smell used to drive me crazy when I was a kid.

It is very, very seldom that the Queen is clicked without her characteristic royal hairdo.

Here is a picture of the Queen travelling icognito, with big sunglasses and flat hairdo.

Thanks Henri M. I like that look on the Queen.

QB's hairdo in the photo

I was just looking at the photo originally by Henri M. I cannot believe how that hair-do really changes her looks. I think it makes her look years younger....

Well for one I think that QB was indeed much younger on that pic.
And second I am still not convinced she doesn't sport a helmet.
However, it is great to have such a signature look in her position, since I imagine, without it, she will indeed not be recognized that much.
I saw a pic of her at one of her grandchildrens birth, she either went or came to/from the hospital, her hair was not styled and she looked so much nicer, much softer and prettier. But, than I would assume, that soft and pretty is not on her agenda when she gets down to monarchial business.


Silvia dyes her hair, and everyone who thinks otherwise probably also believes that her facial skin, which is pulled tighter than a blown up ballon just aged gracefully.

Maxima dyes her hair too and IMO a bit too bleachy blonde, her freakled and heavily rouged face does not go well with the Marilyn peroxide.

I don't think that hair dye is necessarily a bad thing for anybody. My mom gets her hair dyed her natural color because she started going grey in her twenties.

I've never heard of any royal ladies or men wearing wigs. Are there any out there?

I'm not sure, but I do believe many royal ladies may wear falls, pieces and perhaps clip on extensions for special events. It's nothing new, most celebrities wear hair pieces to add volume or whatever.

Its very normal for them to do so, hardly shows. It helps alot when wanting to put your hair up.

I was just wondering yesterday if Queen Bea didn't have her signature helment hair, what she would look like. But now I know- scary!

I don't know the date of that pic but to me she looks a zillion times better, despite the fact that I know that for some Queens like Elizabeth I, Sofia and Beatrix their hairdos are her signatures and one won't get acostumed to a change that easy, Queen Elizabeth's hairdo is as a national institution as the Queen is itself.
