From Kate Middleton’s Ponytail to Meghan Markle’s Messy Bun, Here Are 12 Photos of Iconic Casual Hairstyles

Amidst the coronavirus, our lives — hairstyles included — have become decidedly more casual. Don’t get us wrong, there’s nothing bad about dressing up from time to time except these days getting fancy means wearing jeans. The rest of the time we can’t be bothered to spend more than a few minutes at the absolute most on our hair.

With all the comfy-cozy vibes of stay-at-home life, we’re taking inspiration from celebrities and royals alike who have made casual styles downright iconic. 

Carolyn Bessette Kennedy

First up is Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. The late wife of John F. Kennedy, she became a minimalist style icon and that included her hair. No matter how fancy the event, whether it had been a gala or a magazine launch, Bessette Kennedy stuck to simple and easy hairstyles. While her affinity for understated, never flashy styles had a sad backstory, there’s no denying it worked for Bessette Kennedy. 

She wore her hair in a ponytail walking her and Kennedy’s dog, Friday. 

She wore the same style to a much more formal event keeping with her simple yet chic approach to style. 

We’re taking a page out of Bessette Kennedy’s book and wearing our hair in a simple ponytail. 

Kim Kardashian West

A style icon who launched her own shapewear brand and line of cosmetics, Kim Kardashian West has had many hairstyles over the years. Way before her sleek hairdo, she and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family couldn’t get enough of top knots. The 39-year-old married to Kanye West would put her hair in a bun on the top of her head for all sorts of occasions. 

She wore the style at the airport. 

And other times she opted for a more polished version too. 

Honestly, we’ll be sporting her airport look. 

Meghan Markle

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has become a major style icon since she married Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex in May 2018. But even before joining the British royal family, Meghan knew how she liked to wear her hair; in a messy bun. 

The laidback style quickly became part of Meghan’s signature style. She wore her hair in a messy bun on royal engagements, her wedding day, and many more occasions.

It’s been said Meghan strategically picked the style to come off as more relatable. No matter why she chose the look, we’re betting her messy bun sticks around for years to come.  

Jennifer Aniston

Audiences couldn’t get enough of Jennifer Aniston’s haircut as Rachel Green on Friends, the character’s look became iconic and had women requesting emulating the look, asking for “The Rachel.”

Not only did Aniston’s character become known for her hair, Aniston herself has become known for her own signature looks. She’s sported straight, sleek hairstyles that are simple but never boring.

They cost a lot to maintain but the casual look works for red carpets too so maybe for Aniston, the hairstyle is worth the price tag. 

Kate Middleton 

Look up “ponytail” in the dictionary and there will be a picture of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wearing her signature hairstyle. As the wife of the future leader of the British royal family, Catherine’s ponytails are elevated but still casual compared to her other go-to look; a shiny, bouncy blowout.

Catherine’s ponytail goes well with her casual, off-duty look.

Princess Diana

While Diana had many iconic outfits, her hairstyles were memorable too. Meghan and Catherine’s late mother-in-law made headlines when she switched up her short hairstyle. Like Aniston’s straight locks, Diana’s short hair worked for any and all events. 

Her short hair looked great wet. 

And the casual hairstyle also worked when photographers snapped pictures of her leaving the gym. 

Here’s to more casual hair days!
