Meg Ryan in Kate & Leopold

Meg Ryan is well known for her great hair. Each new style becomes a trend-setter, and is sure to be fun and easy to wear. Her hairstyle in the romantic comedy "Kate and Leopold" is a look that will be in demand for years to come. It’s the answer to wearing long hair that keeps its shape throughout the day.

Start with a blunt haircut at about shoulder length.
Layer the top of the style, leaving the layers long, reaching below cheekbone level. The layering from this level down brings the hair closer to the head. ( indicated by the arrows ) After the cut, you will want the nape area to be thick enough for a ‘solid’ appearance and thin enough to cup in - giving the style its shape in the back and sides.

Texturizing is used throughout the cut for a piecey appearance. I suggest creating this texturizing with shears rather than a razor - leaving blunt, chunky ends. Use invisible texturizing in the top to add fullness while maintaining the overall long layers. The short hair pieces within the long helps to fluff the top slightly.

The amount of texturizing from the occipital bone down depends upon the thickness of the hair in that area. Very thick hair often causes it to appear overly full at the bottom. In that case, more texturizing is needed in the underneath layers to remove bulk.
