Meghan’s stylist reveals cheap supermarket item which was key to wedding hair

Meghan Markle loves a messy bun, and she rocked one on several official visits in the lead up to her wedding day.

So fans were overjoyed when she stuck with her signature look for her bridal hairstyle, opting for a simple up-do.

She picked New York-based hairdresser Serge Normant to be in charge of her locks on the big day, and it’s fair to say he did an incredible job.

The 52-year-old has spoken about what Meghan was like on the wedding morning, and revealed the cheap supermarket item which was key to achieving the look.

He said: "I am still pinching myself. It’s just one of those moments you dream of.

"I wanted to go with something on who she, she has a beautiful head of hair and is gorgeous, so it was just easy.

"We worked really closely together but there was nothing contrived about it. We knew what we wanted to do. We wanted something that wasn’t effortless and really timeless."

He said the key to Meghan’s bridal look was hair pins.

And not some fancy designer pins, just normal bog standard shop bought pins.

Serge said:"Pins, they were key to this updo.

"There was a lot of easing underneath and a little messiness. I just used long, regular pins. Things that you could just find in the shop for a few pounds.

"People could recreate it at home, absolutely, maybe even better!"


It took just 45 minutes to do Meghan’s hair ready for th big day, and Serge said she didn’t seem at all nervous.

He said: "I dryed it with a round brush and then used a little iron on the edges just to give it texture. And then put it up. Pouff!

"The key is not making it too tight. I really wanted it to be loose. There were a lot of little bits [round her face]. I wanted her to be able to tuck it behind her ears if she wanted to do, because that is what she normally does.

"The shape has to be seen a little bit through the veil so I needed a certain volume to it to see the shape through the veil.

"There was a lot of easing underneath and a little messiness. I just used long, regular pins. Things that you could just find in the shop for a few pounds.



"People could recreate it at home, absolutely, maybe even better!

I think the relaxed style is very reflective of her, never contrived, an easiness about her. it never looks like it has been too complicated to achieve.

"We did a trial last week [but that’s it]. On the day she was calm and chatty. She was very happy, it was a beautiful morning, the perfect morning to get married.

"No nerves. If there were there, they didn’t show. She was very happy, very excited."

Meghan wore a stunning bandeau tiara, which was made in 1932 for Queen Mary and a long veil.

Her dress was a simple pure white fitted gown from British designer Claire Waight Keller .

She later changed into a second wedding dress, a glamorous bespoke lily white high neck gown designed by Stella McCartney.
