Netflix’s The Crown: The most regal hairstyles from the show

"Hairstyles fit for a queen" take on a whole new meaning.  

With season two of Netflix’s The Crown continues to tell the inside story of the events that took place at Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street during Queen Elizabeth II’s reign in the 20th century.

But it’s not only the gripping storyline that has viewers (by which, we mean us) hooked, it’s also because of the very regal hairstyles flaunted in practically every scene! So, if you want to see the majestic ‘dos that we’re totally in love with, keep on scrolling.

Royal hairstyles from The Crown we’re totally obsessed with

Hat-appropriate waves

Let’s face it, nothing says ‘regal hairstyle’ better than an elegant hair accessory.

Always opting to sport a hat for almost every outside-the-palace occasion, it’s safe to say that the Queen is quite a fan of fine millinery. Of course, when donning a hat, one needs to have an equally flattering hairstyle to place it upon. Cue brushed out, bouncy waves!

Fact: bobs have been in style ever since the middle of the 20th century. Don’t believe us? Then just take a look at actress Vanessa Kirby, who oozes elegance in her role as Princess Margaret.

Her chin-length bob features flicked-out ends and a voluminous top – just the kind of noble hairstyle you would expect from the Queen’s younger sister, right?

Of course, the series wouldn’t be complete without an appearance from the Queen’s iconic, regal updo now, would it?

This sophisticated, wavy style isn’t just the epitome of elegance (not to mention it’s literally fit for a Queen), but it’s also the perfect base on which to sit a bedazzling tiara! ‘Scuse us, but we think we just found our go-to hairstyle for party season.
