All Things Hair | 10 January 2018

We saw Megan Markle wearing a messy bun, so we’re going to rock it, too!


Meghan Markle just proved that she isn’t a regular royal. How? By choosing to rock a lush, low messy bun (AKA every lazy girl’s go-to) for a recent royal engagement — and we’re seriously over the moon!

Long-term fans of the former Suits star will know that she is rarely spotted without her glossy Hollywood waves, but she’s broken the royal beauty rules and rocked a ‘do we can all get on board with. So, what are you waiting for?

Meghan Markle’s messy bun is giving us life

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry visited a London radio station yesterday for a joint interview, and for the royal engagement, the Duchess-to-be decided to opt for an unexpected (but undeniably chic!) messy bun hairstyle.

As you can see, her chocolate brown locks have been swept back into stylish blogger bun, with some loose tendrils at the front for an extra romantic effect. Pretty amazing, right?

So, now that she has given this lazy girl favourite a royal seal of approval, you shouldn’t feel so bad about rocking it 24-7! Yep, whether you wear it to the gym, a dinner date or work, know this: Meghan did it, and so can you.

VO5 Dry Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: When styling her mane, we like to think that Meghan uses a dry texturising spray to create her envy-inducing locks. So, if you want to do the same, you need to get your hands on the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray!

This will help leave your hair feeling fresh and clean, while also giving it the bounce and body needed to create royal-approved hairstyles. Now all you have to do is wait for your prince to show up!

Okay, we know that this one is a bit of a cheat, but if you’re low on time (or having a bit of a bad hair day), then hair accessories or hats are perfect for hiding your unruly tresses. But if millinery isn’t your cup of tea, then why not rock a headscarf or bandana instead?
