Meghan Markle may be the newest member of the British royal family, but she's not above riding out a great hairstyle like all of us.
Two days after one of the most talked about weddings of the year, the Duchess and Prince Harry were photographed returning to Kensington Palace by car. Both are still smiling, and—at first glance—it appears that Markle is still wearing her laid-back reception updo, a chignon accessorized with curlier tendrils.
Instead of leaving the face-framing strands out, it looks like the Duchess has tucked them behind her ears to make her hairstyle feel a little more casual. And let's be honest, the curls probably fell.
Serge Normant, the celebrity hairstylist who created Markle's chignon for the ceremony, told the DailyMail that it only took him 45 minutes to do. London-based celebrity hairstylist George Northwood hasn't shared what his reception updo styling session clocked in at, but it does it really matter? Markle's wearing the chignon two days later and it still looks good.

No matter what products I use, my hair never looks the same as it does when my stylist does it at the salon, so I can relate to Markle leaving her updo in for a day or two after her wedding. Considering the Duchess probably worked with Northwood until they decided on a look that she was absolutely in love with for her wedding day, I would wear that messy updo as long as possible, too.
