The shining star of many romantic comedies, Meg Ryan is known just as much for her iconic hair as she is for her movie roles. Her disheveled, choppy bob is one of the signature hairstyles of the 90s, and it remains one of the best examples of a short, carefree cut. A rough side part and loose strands of hair help frame the face, resulting in a sexy, messy look. Now that summer’s here, it’s the best time to pursue a style like Meg’s, and go after a short, deconstructed ‘do.

Step 1: Towel dry hair to damp and apply texture paste to achieve a disheveled look.

Step 2: Blowdry with fingers to make hair look naturally messy.

Step 3: If desired, curl small sections of hair around a curling iron. Run fingers through curls to create loose waves.

Step 4: On non-shampoo days, switch to Refinish dry shampoo for more volume and texture.
