Meghan Markle the Duchess of Sussex has revived the trend surrounding effortlessly chic styles.

"Updos are a great chic, effortless style and perfect for keeping your hair out of your face during summer and there are some stunning updo do looks that can be very soft and flattering, including the messy bun." Karen Thomson, Owner of Kam Hair and Body Spa

Step 1: To create this look, the hair was blow-dried to keep it smooth whilst creating volume at the same time.

Step 2: Hair was then pulled into a ponytail and secured.

Step 3: Then, the hair was then backcombed to give it padding and volume before being put into a loose French roll. To keep the French roll in place, the hair was secured with hairpins.

Step 4: Hair was then pulled out in areas to give a disheveled look and also pulled out around the face to give a softer appearance.

Step 5: Finish off the look with a gorgeous hair accessory to give your hairstyle added edge!
