Although she's famous for her messy bun (which somehow looks low maintenance and refined at the same time), the Duchess of Sussex has been photographed experimenting with different hairstyles as of late. At the launch of her latest charity venture, a cookbook, Meghan Markle wore her hair in free flowing, tousled waves — a hairstyle she's rarely been spotted in since her engagement photos were released in 2017.
As her schedule becomes increasingly full with plenty of royal engagements, the public is presented with a closer look into the true variety of Markle's personal style. The Duchess arrived to the launch of her new charity cook book, Together: Our Community Cookbook, on Thurs. morning at Kensington Palace in London in an ensemble perfect for the gray, fall weather.
Her outfit was complimented with loose, subtle waves, completed with a blunt middle part and a touch of frizz. Unlike the bouncy, more refined curls she's opted for in the past, this look is one of Markle's most laid back.
Markle was joined by her mother Doria and her husband Prince Harry to celebrate the release of her debut book, which marks an important milestone in her short career as a royal.
Markle has a unique, easy-going approach to royalty. In addition to gravitating towards more casual hairstyles, the Duchess of Sussex has also reportedly done her own makeup in recent months, preferring to get the job done herself for a quick, easy look.
The last time Markle turned to tousled waves was during a moment of equal importance — her engagement photos with Prince Harry. On Dec. 21, 2017, Kensington Palace released the official portrait on Instagram, which featured the new couple sharing a loving embrace.
Besides her signature wispy bun, which often has a few face-framing pieces pulled out in the front, Markle keeps a few other hairstyles in rotation. At the beginning of Sept., she went for shiny, bouncy curls while out at the 100 Days To Peace gala with Prince Harry. She parted her hair to the side, and her voluminous curls complimented her royal-blue Jason Wu dress.
But, the beauty of Markle's most recent hair change is that it's so easy to recreate. Regardless of your hair length, loose waves are a lot less complicated than you think (no matter your relationship with a curling iron).
