Kate Middleton will have six hairstylists for the royal wedding.

To ensure that her hair is picture perfect when she marries Prince William on April 29, Kate Middleton has enlisted a half dozen hairstylists to make sure not a strand is out of place, reports the Daily Mail.

Two of the stylists, Richard Ward and James Pryce, have been styling Middleton’s mane—as well as that of her mother, Carole, and sister, Pippa, for years. The future princess also reserved four “senior stylists” from the Goring Hotel, where she will stay the night before the royal wedding, to assist Ward and Pryce.

Not all of the stylists will be working on the bride-to-be; some will be taming the hair of the bridal party, including her bridesmaids.

A friend told the British paper that Middleton had her wedding-hair trial on April 1 “and is very happy with how everything is going.”

It is thought that the brunette beauty will wear one of the Queen’s tiaras on her big day, but which one is still a well-kept secret. The front-runner is the $10.5 million Strathmore Rose Tiara, which underwent restoration for the wedding, reports the Daily Mail.

One thing that seems to be out of the bag is the designer of Pippa’s maid-of-honor dress. According to the newspaper, the head bridesmaid and her mother were spotted at the London showroom of Temperley London, where the pair were greeted by designer Alice Temperley and stayed for three hours. An onlooker reportedly spotted Pippa carrying a pair of shoes for what appeared to be a dress fitting,

In addition to a ready-to-wear line, Temperley London also has a bridal gown collection.
