There’s a reason why they call it the “Meghan Markle” effect: The Duchess of Sussex has the world in awe, not just for her real-life Cinderella story and honorable humanitarian efforts, but also for her personal fashion and beauty choices. One of the most talked-about aspects of her beauty routine, of course, is her (glorious, gorgeous) hair, which is already setting a new tone for the Royal Family. Messy buns with wispy pieces framing the face, simple, low ponytails — these thoroughly modern styles are quickly shaking up the typically staid royal beauty we’re used to seeing. And while yes, Meghan Markle still tries to honor traditional royal protocol in her appearance (wearing fascinators, keeping her manicures pale), she’s also helping change what those standards look like. The soon-to-be 37-year-old has certainly come far from her days of California cool, blossoming into looks that skew more Cambridge chic. Take a look back through her major hair moments over the years and see just how much Markle’s style has evolved through it all.
