Meghan Markle’s hair is one of her best accessories. The former-actress is a fan of wearing her long hair in a bun at many events, recently opting for a 60s style with volume at the crown.
Permanent hair straightening is not cheap and has to be regularly as hair at the crown will grow its is natural texture.
At London salon Errol Douglas a relaxer or texturiser treatment by the Head of Afro styling will cost £80. To maintain this for a year have a treatment at the recommended every three month rate would cost £320.
Isa Lavahun, Digital Brand Manager at beauty discovery website www.Cosmetify.com, comment on Meghan Markle’s glossy hair.
She told Express.co.uk: “One of the most defining factors of Meghan Markle’s look is her sleek and shiny hair. It’s always well looked after and effortlessly groomed, never with a hair out of place.

“Though Meghan tends to stick to the classic styles – either down and straight, down and curly or pinned back in a sleek, low ponytail or bun – her consistently pristine hair is thanks to how she (or her team of hair stylists) maintains it.
“With regular treatments to repair split ends, keep hair hydrated and give it a natural, healthy glow, Meghan clearly looks after her hair.
“Though it’s recommended for long hair to be trimmed every 12 weeks, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Duchess’ hair is cut every six to eight weeks to avoid breakage and split ends.
“As her hair is constantly blow-dried and styled for engagements, she probably has deep treatments like an overnight hair masque or oil to restore its condition.
Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
