The Meg Ryan haircut has seen a steady stream of admiration and emulation over the years. Meg’s hairstyle, designed by John Freida, is a precision shag haircut with chopped pieces. This short, choppy style exudes confidence and fun. You will feel fun and flirty.
Meg Ryan’s cut was designed for her slender, narrow face. This cut suits oval, oblong and heart-shaped faces. It is not recommended for fuller faces. (Not sure of your face shape? Click here for our What Shape is My Face page.)
If you have a long face, add bangs for balance. This look can be worn short or chin length. The style is not for fine hair because it needs heavy layering and chopping. The style works best with medium to thick hair with some natural wave. If your hair is straight, you may just need extra tousling with a curling iron.
Your stylist will cut your hair to the desired length. She will achieve the style by randomly razoring long and short layers throughout. The style can be cut wet or dry depending on your stylist’s preference.
Once you’ve got this great cut, how do you style it on your own? Meg’s hairdresser recommends a few handfuls of mousse to start. Smooth a few handfuls through towel dried hair. Smooth a little Funky Chunky Texturiser on and pull through individual strands.
Meg Ryan’s hairstyle helped make her a household name. Follow in her footsteps and look like a million bucks with her coveted style. Blondes may not have more fun. Women with shaggy bob haircuts do!
