Celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke slams Kate Middleton's grey hair as 'disastrous'

Iconic hairdresser Nicky Clarke has some choice words for Kate Middleton.
The legendary stylist said the Duchess of Cambridge's greying locks are unacceptable for an international style icon.
"Kate needs to get rid of her grey hair — it’s not a good look," he told the Daily Mail.
"She does have amazing things done to her hair and it can look great, but unfortunately it’s the case for women — all women — that until you’re really old, you can’t be seen to have any grey hairs.
"Kate is such a style icon that even a few strands of grey would be a disaster, so I highly recommend that she cover it up. I hate grey hair."
Clarke has worked with several members of the royal family including Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, but said that there are double standards with women's hair versus men's as they age.
"Men can go grey in their mid-50s and still be considered attractive, it’s the whole silver fox thing, but it’s not the same for women."
