Covetable things about Kate Middleton: her fiance, her princessly future, her down-to-earth-ness, her athletic physique, her fabulous flattering wardrobe, and her glossy chestnut locks.

Of all these things, we're going to say the hair is probably the easiest to get, so let's focus on that, shall we?

The folks over at L'Oreal Paris have the answer—according to their in-house hair expert, fans of Middleton's perfect brunette shade can score the same look with L'Oreal's Healthy Looks Cream Gloss Color in shade 4AR—a.k.a. Cool Chestnut Brown.

Best bit? The hair color is a snip at $9.99—it's available at and at drugstores nationwide—and the whole procedure, root to tip, takes a mere 10 minutes.
