Just like everyone else on the planet, we’re fascinated by Meghan Markle. Her life is endlessly interesting (marrying a prince will do that), but it’s her tried-and-true beauty wardrobe that piques our interest over and over again. Even now, as she’s transitioned from royal life to civilian living in California, Markle’s beauty looks have remained true to her minimalist approach to beauty. And of all the staple looks the former duchess continues to wear on repeat, easy updo hairstyles top the list.
We know the word “updo” might make you think of stiff, overdone bridesmaid hair, but Markle’s take on the classic style is far from stuffy. Just like the rest of her beauty routine, she tends to keep it simple with elegant buns secured at the nape, complete with face-framing tendrils or sleek, middle-parted chignons that are just as appropriate on the red carpet as they are for everyday wear.
