Ever since Meghan Markle stepped onto the scene as Prince Harry's soon-to-be duchess, people have been kicking up a fuss about her hair.
Whether it's her messy buns, or her face-framing tendrils, people have obviously Not Been Happy about the state of the royal waves.
But could Meghan be moving away from what has now become her signature look?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a casual reception in London, both looking very sharp. Harry wore a blue suit (shock, horror, etc., etc), and Meghan broke out of her blush-pink-cream-white routine by wearing a bright yellow sheath by Brandon Maxwell.
But, as sources point out, even though she was wearing a low bun, Meghan's signature face-framing tendrils were nowhere to be seen.
Here they are in all their headline-making glory:
It was noted that there doesn't seem to be any bobby pins securing them away from her face, and since they aren't falling forward out of her low chignon, it could mean that the duchess is growing them out to be fitted into her bun.
When wearing this particular low chignon hairstyle previously, Meghan has either lacquered them down or let them fall out naturally — as she did on her wedding day, much to people's delight.
Perhaps she's just between haircuts at the moment, or perhaps her signature hairstyle is no more.
