On top of the obvious advantage of keeping hair off your neck during those sweltering days of summer, the low bun isn't afraid of some humidity, rain or wind. Your duchess-inspired 'do will hold strong through any unexpected change in weather...while others are complaining about their blowout frizzing at the first sign of a shower.

Protecting your skin from the sun is a must-do during the summer months, and the low bun pairs perfectly with everything from a baseball cap to a Panama hat. Meghan, of course, uses the style while wearing fascinators.

No stylist required! Simply gather your hair into a low ponytail, twist and secure with bobby pins. If pieces come loose and fall out, don't sweat it — it's all part of the relaxed look. If your hair is long enough to pull back, there's no stopping you.

Meghan's style can't be overlooked...and that's in part because her hair lets her ensemble do most of the talking! When you're breaking out a new outfit, especially with a killer neckline, consider tying back your hair to create a distraction-free zone.
