Everyone's Talking About Meghan Markle's Straight Hair for a Surprising Reason

Updated 09/25/18

Meghan Markle might as well double as a beauty queen because whenever she switches up her look, the world stops. Any product, treatment, hairstyle, or makeup look the Duchess of Sussex dons is like coming up on gold when you discover the news. She recently made a major switch-up in the hair category that has everyone talking. Markle sticks to her loose, effortless waves, chic, low-buns, and classic updos. They've been her signature hairstyles since becoming a royal.

However, during her and Prince Harry's trip to Loughborough, England, for the inaugural Coach Core Awards, she wore super-sleek straight hair with a middle part. And wow, we haven't seen her hair look this straight since officially joining the family.

She's always gone the natural makeup route, but what's the reason for this new hairstyle? The internet is currently buzzing with speculations. Since she's ditched her curls for a more toned-down texture (she hasn't worn her hair straight since last year pre-wedding), the internet is saying it's because a new royal baby is on the way. Sounds dramatic, right?

Well, the internet may be on to something. According to Cosmopolitan, there's an internet theory associated with royals in relation to new hairstyles and future pregnancies. Look here for a pretty believable timeline of Kate Middleton, which chronicles every time she's debuted a different hairstyle and then announced her pregnancy. Is this the same for Markle? Who knows, but everyone's assuming so.

Either way, we're into Markle's freshly layered, straight style. Even though she's pretty consistent with her beauty looks, she's switching it up and there's nothing wrong with that. Harpers Bazaar, via Beautybanter, reports that she's dished on some of her fave hair products in the past. "There are two lines I use religiously: Kerastase (masquintense & the oleo relax line) and Wella, which has a hair oil that I am obsessed with," Markle said. "It smells like vacation and makes your hair slippery and touchable.

I love this stuff! It also doubles as a pretty amazing body oil post bath."
