If you have long hair, itâ€™s normal for a subtle trim to go unnoticed; thatâ€™s kind of your intention, after all. You go into the salon to clean up the dead ends, tighten your face-framing strands, and relish in the feeling of a fresh cut â€” even if it looks exactly the same to everyone else. That is, unless youâ€™re Meghan Markle.
As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid their respects at the Field of Remembrance service at Westminster Abbey this morning, Markle looked positively regal and polished â€” down to her navy teddy coat and chic matching fascinator. Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed that the Duchess was also showing off bouncy, freshly dusted ends. Her long waves are now a good three inches shorter than her press appearances from October, specifically her outing at the One Young World Summit in London.
As a true trim, the new cut stays in Markleâ€™s comfort zone: long, center-parted, and styled with loose barrel waves. While we love a classic Meghan Markle updo â€” like the â€™60s-style bouffant bun she wore recently â€” this softer, delicately-curled hairstyle felt especially appropriate for todayâ€™s outdoor ceremony and the impending cold front.
Plus, even under the fascinator, itâ€™s clear that Markleâ€™s strands are bouncier and more voluminous than ever â€” which has us itching to book the same trim weâ€™ve been putting off all fall.
