How to Style Hair Like Meg Ryan. Meg Ryan, one of America's best-loved actresses, is also well-known for her frequent hairstyle changes. Not long after she adopts a new style, women start asking their hairstylist to give them the latest Meg Ryan cut. She chooses no-fuss hairstyles that are easy to replicate and fun to wear. Here are a few pointers on achieving some of her most memorable looks.
Get Meg's golden blond locks with a high lift tint of two to three shades if you have dark blond or light brown hair.
Take on Meg's short hair in "You've Got Mail" by cutting shaggy, random layers and long bangs that frame the face. Use mousse or gel before you blow dry. With a paddle brush, smooth out your hair, turning up the ends as you go around your head.
Get her current look, which is "just rolled out of bed," with a short layered razor cut that you can style in a half-hour with a paddle brush and a hair dryer. This haircut requires regular cuts to maintain its Ryanesque quality.
Go long with her famous messy shoulder-length style. This square cut features razored edges as well as layers. You'll need a straightening iron for this hairstyle, as well as some smoothing shine for a perfect finish.
Add on a hair extension if you really want to make an impact, as Meg has been known to do.
Take advantage of natural waves, which will help you achieve many of Meg Ryan's looks.
