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