Meghan Markle is often seen sporting a low bun, styled to look effortlessly messy.

The Duchess of Sussex, 36, is fast becoming a fashion icon, dazzling the UK with her elegant style and strong fashion sense.

Prince Harry's wife regularly opts to have her hair in a low bun, and whilst it looks super flattering, there's also a few clever reasons as to why she favours this look.

Hats are friends

It's a regular occurrence for royal women to don some sort of headwear, and with her hair styled in a low bun, it means that Meghan can whip a hat on and off as often as she pleases, without any fear of ruining her locks.

It works for day and night

The versatility of the look means that she can ooze formality and class during the day, whilst also using a change of outfit to rock a slightly more relaxed look for an evening event.


It's heatwave friendly 

With the scorching weather over the last few weeks, Meghan can smile away happily knowing that she's not getting sweaty and the back of her neck (we've all been there recently).

It compliments any outfit

The sophisticated, effortless look means that her posh frocks and suave tuxedos can do the talking, without her hair stealing the limelight.


It's quick and easy

Meghan has previously admitted in the past that she doesn't like to 'waste time' getting ready. 

In an interview with Esquire two years ago, Megs revealed: "When I get ready to go out, it's half hour and we're out of the door. I don't want to waste time getting ready: I want to go and have fun."
