The laid-back look has been worn to some pretty major events – it's how she wore her hair for their couple debut at the Invictus Games in Toronto and the style she chose for her first solo outing with Queen Elizabeth. 02 of 11 THE UNDONE BUN STEVE PARSONS/AFP/Getty Images One of the Duchess of Sussex's signature styles is the loose low bun. She loves the look – which pulls her hair back in a casual way, leaving out pieces to frame her face – so much, she even chose it for her wedding day! 03 of 11 THE PRETTY PONYTAIL Chris Jackson/Getty Images When she's not rocking a bun but wants to pull her hair back, Meghan turns to the classic ponytail. She opts to place it low and hide the band by wrapping it with a strand of hair, as seen during her visit to the Hubb Community Center in November. 04 of 11 POLISHED & PULLED BACK Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty In another take on her go-to low bun, Meghan pulls back all her hair instead of leaving some loose pieces in front.
