Ian Carmichael: Personal Hairdresser to Her Majesty

Today we celebrate the 90th birthday of Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

We salute her hairdresser, Scotsman Ian Carmichael who tends the Queen’s hair twice a week.

Carmichael was issued a Royal Warrant to emphasize how valuable he is to the royal coiffure.

‘Of all my clients, the Queen is by far my favourite, she has wonderful hair.’

However, he remains discreet about the monarch, refusing to gossip.

‘I have done her hair for a very long time and I remain loyal to her,’ he said.


  1. I bet she lets him try on a tiara or two, on his birthday... Jx

  2. oh what i book she'll write when liz goes to her glory.

  3. The Queen's Queen instead of a Queens' Queen. Apostrophe placement can make all the difference.
