Roger Federer obviously had the spotlight at Sunday’s Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Final in London, but the glossy locks of two ladies stole a bit of the tennis star’s shine. The Duchess of Cambridge and runner-up Andy Murray’s girlfriend, Kim Sears, apparently earned lots of attention for their smooth, shiny hairstyles as both sat court-side on Sunday.

However, there’s some competition: according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, Sears’s basic blowout has become the most coveted in London lately, thanks to her frequent, fashionable appearances at Wimbledon these past two weeks.

“Her natural, glossy hair is the perfect relaxed summer look,” Mathew Soobroy, master stylist at London’s Charles Worthington Salons, tells the paper. “Her style says ‘girl-next-door,’ but with a little extra gloss and bounce. We’ve experienced an incredible uplift in requests for [her] style, exceeding requests for other celebrities [including Kate] by over 50 percent.”

It’s hard to imagine a style more popular than Kate’s ever-perfect basic blowout, but on the flip side, it’s also fun to hear about a new Kim for a change. Tell us: Whose hairstyle do you prefer? Vote in our poll below!

I can’t believe I am even weighing in on this – but Kim’s isn’t a hairstyle. It’s long straight hair parted in the center. Kate is the one with syle and polish.

Honest on

I think Kate is pretty but I like Kim’s hair much better and I think in these pictures she is also much prettier overall.

Why are we comparing hairstyles? They are different people and they are going to wear their hair depending on what they prefer and what looks good on them. To compare them is ridiculous!

Yawn. Both hairsyles are boring. It’s just straight, one length, or very slighty layered very long hair. In Kate’s case she curls it. There is nothing new, refreshing or special about either one’s hair, except it is well groomed and the hair itself is pretty. The style, straight and parted down the middle? Boring. I’m waiting for Kate to do something new and different with her hair.

Donna on

Wow, long hair with curled ends. Hmm, I’ve never seen that done before. Pfft.

Kim’s looks more natural, which is why I like it better. Kate has beautiful hair, but it is not as natural looking.

Christiana on

Why are we judging on a hair style? Its a sporting event, not a red carpet. Leave these poor girls alone! They’re just trying to go out and have a good time.

Kara on

really? Is this serious? why would you even take the time to post this “story”…it’s like staring at a wall.

public concensus on

Kim’s hairstyle is effortless & naturally beautiful. Kate’s hairstyle is “trying TOO HARD” to look good.

Also, Kate’s nose is FAT.
Whereas, Kim’s nose is slender and more feminine.
