Like 29 million other Americans, I woke up before 7 a.m. on Saturday morning to watch the royal wedding. It was pure magic—from Markle and her mother arriving in a Rolls-Royce to the band of British children carrying her train up the steps and through the church to Harry's now famous lip-bite moment to the star-studded guest list. But I have to admit that when Prince Harry lifted Markle's veil, I yelled out to the television, "Tuck that piece of hair behind her ear!" My friend immediately texted me her displeasure with the new duchess's piecey hairdo. Was it supposed to be a little unkempt? Was she having a hair mishap? Turns out we weren't the only ones focused on the look, as Twitter blew up in real time over the style.
