The Clooneys make the cut – and she’s even us­ing Amal’s crimper

The Mail on Sunday - - News - By Katie Hind SHOW­BUSI­NESS EDI­TOR

THEY have se­cured the hearts of two of the world’s most el­i­gi­ble bach­e­lors.

Now Amal Clooney and Meghan Markle have some­thing else in com­mon – as The Mail on Sun­day can re­veal that the Royal brideto-be is to use the hu­man rights lawyer’s favourite hair­dresser for her wed­ding.

Meghan has hired celebrity stylist Miguel Perez, who charges £180 for a cut and blow dry, after a per­sonal rec­om­men­da­tion from Mrs Clooney, who will be at­tend­ing the big day with hus­band Ge­orge.

Span­ish-born Perez, who also cre­ated a plaited updo for Mil­lie Mack­in­tosh’s wed­ding to rap­per Pro­fes­sor Green, told The Mail on Sun­day: ‘Yes, I do Meghan’s hair. I do Amal’s, and Meghan is friends with her. I also do Ge­orge’s, I do the whole fam­ily. Amal put Meghan and me to­gether when she moved here. I do her colour, her cut and her styling.

‘We have talked about it [the wed­ding] and we have a plan. I can’t say any more but we know what we’re do­ing.’

Perez styled Amal for a re­cent Vogue magazine cover shoot at her Berk­shire home, telling his 1,700 In­sta­gram fol­low­ers: ‘Very proud to work with this amaz­ing in­spi­ra­tional wo­man.’

Perez, who works at John Vial’s Sa­lon Sloane in Chelsea, is also friends with Meghan’s con­fi­dant, the Soho House ex­ec­u­tive Markus An­der­son. Un­til the end of last year, Perez had his own sa­lon at The Ned, part of the Soho House em­pire.

Perez’s tips in­clude eat­ing a muf­fin while wait­ing for a hair mask to set in, and tells his clients when their hair is fin­ished: ‘Walk out­side. Try to avoid paps. This is your life now. With great hair comes great re­spon­si­bil­ity.’
