Meg Ryan's Hair in You've Got Mail

This is one of my favorite romantic movies and one that sent many people out to the stores to buy computers just so they could experience the words "You've got mail!" It also sent many women to the hairdresser to get Meg Ryans hair style.

The Cut:
The short style has shaggy layering all over with longish bangs that are parted and swept to the side. The nape area is cut into a blunt line and left full enough to allow the ends to kick out.

The Style:
To style this cut apply a firm hold hair gel after shampooing. Dry the top (from the ears up) with a large round brush to give it curve and fullness.
Dry all the hair from ear level down with a vent brush so that the hair stays fairly straight.

The sides are combed down over the ears. When I dry the back of this look, I hold the blowdryer down low so that the air blows up into the hair at the nape causing it to stand out slightly.

Use a narrow flat iron to encourage the flip. Clamp the flat iron onto a strand of hair and turn it up while sliding it to the end of the strand. You may have to do this two or three times for each strand. The flat iron will not allow the flip to curl over onto itself as a curling iron would.

Finish the look with a light wax or hair creme to add body to your hair and seperate the peices. Do this by placing a small amount of the product in the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together so that a thin coating covers your hands and fingers, then run your hands through your hair two or three times. Use your fingers to arrange to part your hair and arrange it.
Use a spray shine to get a beautiful glossy shine.

The Color:
Ms. Ryan's hair color is a blend of medium to light to extra light blondes. This can be done with a color weaving technique such as foiling, where two or three shades of tint are used.

Once you've got Ms Ryan's romantic look, why not send the man in your life an email invitation for an intimate meeting?
