Meghan Markle’s beauty look is often the topic of conversation. Whether it’s when an adorable kid is playing with her hair, Prince Harry is fixing her windswept flyaways, or people are just looking to her for general inspiration, she’s always at the center.
But since joining the royal household, Markle has changed her look far more than we ever realized. Her buns have gotten sleeker; her makeup has gotten more polished. One thing she hasn’t done since getting engaged, however? Worn her hair straight.
During the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s trip to Loughborough, England, for the inaugural Coach Core Awards, she was seen with pin-straight hair for the first time since the big news of her engagement. This is a departure for Markle, who’s hair as of late is either pulled back, blown out with a nice wave, or full of curls. Could this be her heading toward a more sleek approach when it comes to duchess style? Ahead, see how her new look compares to her usual go-to hairstyles since becoming a member of the royal family.
