We first met Markle with a chocolate-caramel hybrid hue and shorter, shaggier layers around her face.
She switched to a slightly cooler cocoa tone (with warmer honey highlights) in later years, also embracing a deep side part.
A dark chocolate colour came next, with Markle’s face-framing pieces now blending with her longer layers.
Later that year she traded her chocolate tresses for a true raven hue, opting for a sleek straight style.
Markle styled her shoulder-length strands into textured beachy waves a few years later (a style that became a rarity once she took on royal duties).
From understatedly effortless to perfectly polished; this sleek side-swept look is striking on her.
The announcement photo call for her engagement to Prince Harry was the first of many perfectly coiffed traditional royal blowouts.
However, Markle definitely bent some beauty rules along the way, often opting for a chic yet undone messy bun.
Her affinity for updos (such as this sleek chignon) continued throughout her pregnancy with son Archie.
Markle does a polished pony like a pro, keeping strands sleek on top and voluminous below the nape of the neck.
She made a triumphant return to her signature centre-parted blowout for her final appearance as a Senior Royal.
Just a month later, Markle showed off significantly longer locks and a more modern face-framing shape via a Zoom engagement.
Her latest update? This cinnamon shade – lighter than her previous colour but every bit as rich, it’s remarkably similar to the warm, russet tone she started with. Talk about full circle.
