New mom Kate Middleton isn't ready to give up her Princess Shinylocks title. She snuck her hairdresser Alice Cook Tucker (who also styles Will and Harry) into St. Mary's Hospital this morning for a touch-up before even her parents arrived. You'll remember that this is the woman responsible for Kate's Asian-humidity-defying blowout last year, so a little postpartum styling shouldn't be much trouble. As the world awaits for the Royal Baby's first appearance (which, apparently, is happening any minute now), rest assured that every hair on Kate's head will be back in its proper place. [DailyMail]
