As glamorous as the job sounds, we don't really envy the scrutiny faced by the royal hair team. Case in point: the career of James Pryce, the stylist who coiffed Kate Middleton for her wedding and subsequent North American tour and whose ties with the royal family have seemingly now been cut. His big mistake? Using pictures of that work on Facebook and Twitter to promote his own business.
As The Telegraph reports, one of Pryce's colleagues said that using Middleton's locks for self-promo "did not go down too well with the Palace at all." Honestly, if we had the honor of creating royal styles, we'd have a hard time not Facebooking the hell out of 'em — but maybe that's why no one called us for the job. While Middleton still has an extensive hair team in place, Pryce has "been pushed out," the Telegraph reports.
So, what's the lesson here? When you're working for royalty, leave the ego at the door. Though, maybe that rule applies for all types of employment. (The Telegraph)
