Meghan Markle is putting her own spin on royal style. The Suits actress went against the grain when she opted for a semi-sheer gown over more conservative options for her official engagement pics with Prince Harry, and her first appearance of the New Year saw her breaking a royal style rule by wearing all-black — a hue typically reserved for somber occasions. It was the way she wore her hair for the outing, however, that has the internet up in arms.

Rather than opting for a sleek and polished ‘do in the public eye, the 36-year-old beauty stepped out in a simple messy mid-level bun, which featured strands of hair sticking out in the back and loose pieces falling out in the front to frame her face.

People had *feelings* about the look, with some of the opinion that it was far too lax for someone connected to the royal family, calling it “sloppy” and “untidy.”

Most, however, were HERE for the choice, defending the bride-to-be’s right to wear her hair however she sees fit and praising her relatable ways (because seriously, who *hasn’t* thrown their hair up in a bun and called it a day?)

We think she looks gorgeous — keep doing you, Meghan!
