Prince Harry’s new fiancée Meghan Markle has incredible hair
It is important to use a nourishing conditioner to help control frizz when washing your hair, and to smooth down any split ends before using heated tools. Meghan’s hair is the envy of many due to its shine, so always use a great conditioner, but add some serum for that essential gleam, and even a splash of shine spray once you have finished your blow-dry, keeping away from the root to avoid greasiness.

Once washed, make sure your hair is 65 per cent dry before you begin, as soaking wet hair will frazzle quickly. It’s important to blot your hair with a soft towel, and imperative that you don’t rub it dry if you want the former Suits star’s coiffed locks. Use your hands to comb through your hair as you blow-dry, to give your hair some vital oomph. Large waves like Meghan’s that are natural yet glossy, are best achieved with a larger brush – the bigger your tool is, the smoother your hair will turn out.

Try and use a hairdryer with a nozzle, as it will give a smooth look and will prevent the hair from getting too close to the heat. Sectioning your hair will also make it easier to style, and make sure you dry the top layers, before shaping the ends to create that Princess-ready finish.
