Right now, Meghan Markle is everything. It's no wonder so many of us are crushing on her: not only is she about to live out every little (and big) girl's fantasy by becoming a princess, but she's also giving, effortlessly chic, and down-to-earth — as per her former makeup artist, her only beauty request is to let her freckles shine through — and she's got a mane so glorious we're all taking notes on how to replicate it.
Although, quite sadly, we all can't personally marry Prince Harry, we can get Meghan's hair color. I turned to one of LA's top celebrity colorists, Amanda George, the founder of the appropriately named ROIL — pronounced "royal" and even emblazoned with a little crown! — hair care and its accompanying global beauty salons, for help turning my royal hair fantasy into a reality.
George, who happens to hail from the UK, gave me tips on how to give both brunettes and blondes Meghan's rich chestnut hue. "For a girl who is already a brunette that wants Meghan's hair color, we would firstly even out her hair color with a Redken Shades EQ in the level 5, add a few babylights and tips, then regloss with a nice chocolaty brown in a level 6/7 L'Oreal Richesse," she told POPSUGAR.
"For a girl who is blond, going to Meghan's color is more complicated," she continues. "The hair must first be filled with a warm gold, then the color evened out with a nice neutral brown. The same process can be repeated with babylights and tips, this time finishing with a Redken Shades EQ warm brown glaze level 6/7."
George also gives us tips on how to get Meghan's perfectly coiffed 'do. "To style your hair like Meghan's, we would wash your hair using the ROIL Shine Shampoo ($36) and ROIL Shine Conditioner ($43). Then, we would evenly apply Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil ($55), section the hair up, and dry with an Ibiza round brush ($44) for body and bend. For a wavier look, wrap sections of freshly blown hair around a medium-size curling iron. Shake, tousle, style, and spray and be on your way."
Who knows? You might even bag your own prince . . .
