How to recreate Meghan Markle's gorgeous wedding updo

Meghan Markle is giving brides everywhere major inspiration -- from her custom wedding gowns (Givenchy and Stella McCartney) to her wedding bouquet (which includes flowers handpicked by Prince Harry from their Kensington Palace garden).

It's safe to say every aspect of the royal wedding was flawlessly executed, and we weren't expecting anything less from the wedding of the decade! 

One of the things that we were obsessed with? Meghan Markle's hair, which broke royal tradition. 

While we're used to seeing royal brides style their tresses in a blown-out style with loose curls (and don't forget the tiara!), Meghan bucked tradition by opting for a loose updo that reflected her relaxed, understated glamour demeanor.

With the help of celebrity hairstylist Arsen Gurgov, you can recreate Meghan's "polished and regal" look for yourself! Take notes brides!

Here's the step-by-step process for achieving Meghan's flawless updo:

  1. Section out the front from the back. From the front hairline, go back about five fingers width to just before the crown of the head and section out from ear to ear. Backcomb at the crown to give a little volume. Part in the center.
  2. Use a 1 ¼ inch curling iron and section the front into 4 subsections. Curl each subsection going away from the face. Just casually use the iron to curl the hair back.  No need to be too meticulous.
  3. Finger through when done and moist hair with a texturizing spray and then, a soft hold hairspray.
  4. Begin to create the shape in the back by gathering the hair from the ends. Begin to twist and wrap, folding upward and secure with hairpins. Set in place and spray.
  5. Then, take the hair from the front and with the two lower curled pieces gently pull around to the back and crisscross over the top of the lower mass to conceal the seam. Pin in place.
  6. Take the last two pieces, spray lightly with a light hold workable hairspray.  Pull behind the ears and arrange the ends into the rest of the hair in the back.
  7. You can play with pulling a few small ends out around the hairline for a romantic look. 

Voila! You now have a stunning updo literally fit for a princess!
