Next month, Meghan Markle will officially become a member of the royal family. And from what we can tell, she already fits the part one hundred percent! She is heavily involved in different charities, she always appears calm, cool, and collected at royal events, and it seems like she and Prince Harry cannot get enough of each other. In addition to all of that, she also always looks stunning from her hair down to her heels. 

Although Meghan has caught some flak for her "messy" hair in the past, we love her hair and how she styles it! Her messy buns still always look great and we love that she has enough confidence to ignore the critics and continue to style her hair as she pleases. And in addition to a good messy bun, she is also often seen in big loose curls, silky sleek looks, and perfectly pinned updos. 

As someone who is also biracial like Meghan, I understand the struggles of having a hair texture that likely involves straightening with heat or expensive products in order to get it to look the way she has it. It can also be hard to combat humidity, wind, and other forces of nature, but she somehow always looks amazing regardless of the outdoor conditions. 

So, in honor of her gorgeous hair, here are 35 times when Meghan Markle's hair made us totally jealous.
