We're only days away from Meghan Markle's royal wedding and, as we speculate over who will design her wedding dress and which tiara she'll choose, we're taking a look back at her standout hair moments from her engagement to Prince Harry. One thing is quite clear: Meghan Markle is the reigning queen of engagement hair! The bride-to-be never seems to have a bad hair day, and it's likely because she maintains a sensibility about her style and sticks to what works.

Case in point: The classic blowout. Meghan has gorgeous long brown hair, and a shiny blowout only accentuates its beauty. It's a straightforward look that's easy to achieve (made even easier thanks to Meghan's regular keratin treatments), and can work from day to night and with just about any outfit.

Speaking of sensible hairstyles, who could forget the messy bun that sent shockwaves through the world? At public appearances, Meghan oftentimes wears her hair pulled back in a low messy bun, usually accented by face-framing tendrils, and the casual 'do has become synonymous with her style. As a busy bride-to-be, it's the perfect balance between polished and casual.

See? She may not be a royal just yet, but Meghan sure is the queen of engagement hair. Need more proof? Just feast your eyes on her fabulous hair days.
