    Princess Eugenie married her long-term partner, Jack Brooksbank, today at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle – five months after her cousin Prince Harry married Meghan Markle at the same place.

    Eugenie’s dress was pretty incredible – that low back, that train, that designer, that secret message – we could go on. And the celeb guest list was out of this world.

    And that’s all before we’ve got onto her hair & make-up. Wow.

    According to Harpers Bazaar UK , Eugenie’s hair was done by Sonny-Jo MacFarlane at Hari’s Salon in Chelsea. Perhaps the Princess’ regular hair stylist? He created a low chignon with loose tendrils, topped with an art-deco tiara borrowed from the Queen. Sound familiar?

    The only difference is that Eugenie took the modern approach and opted against a veil.

    Fancy recreating this look at your wedding? Gorka Arraras, Creative Manager at Charles Worthington Salons has given us an easy step-by-step.

    Step 1: Set the hair in rollers or tongue it and then pin to set the curls.

    Step 2: Separate the front from the back.

    Step 3: Backcomb the back on the crown area, then pin into the lower nape.

    Step 4: Put the remaining up to create a soft romantic and relaxed chignon.

    Step 5: Place your tiara or headpiece on top of the parting of the hair.

    Step 6: Lastly, with the front of the hair that has been curled, brush the hair softly and sweep the sides of the hair up adding that relaxed and effortless look.

    For her make-up look, Princess Eugenie kept it natural on the lip, but chose a brown smokey eye to accentuate her green eyes. Hannah Martin, Pro and Artistry Manager for Bobbi Brown, created the look.
