Meghan Markle hasn’t really changed her look since becoming a part of the royal family. She still wears sleeveless dresses and no-stockings (despite the rules), and has kept her signature messy bun. I mean she’s stunning and doesn’t need to change a thing, but she did let someone take a pair of scissors to her hair this week!
You might not have noticed, but Meghan got a very secretive hair cut just before her Remembrance Day appearance. It’s not dramatic, and possibly not noticeable to the layman’s eye, but beauty editors at Popsugar noticed and our resident beauty expert, celebrity stylist Dayna Goldstein, can confirm that she’s had a little snip snip.
“It looks like Meghan got a few little shorter face-framing ‘long bangs’ around her face,” Goldstein explains of the cut. And stylists are loving it! “It’s a great way to make a subtle change to open up the face and give the long layered hair cut more life.”

Meghan’s hair has remained relatively consistent throughout her tenure as the Duchess of Sussex. Since her wedding she’s sported long, mid-chest hair styled with a middle part and her signature tendrils out in front (she even wore them on her wedding day!).
