Meg Ryan is perhaps best known for her lead role in the 1989 flick When Harry Met Sally—who could forget Ryan’s spectacular performance in Katz’s Deli scene? While Ryan shot to fame for her string of rom-coms in the 80s and 90s, her ‘shag’ hairstyle also accrued a mass following. We had a peek into the archives, so in honor of Ryan’s FOF birthday on November 19th, we’re taking a look back at some of the less memorable Ryan looks.
This photo, from 1981, was taken in Ryan’s days on CBS’ As the World Turns. Luckily, this hairstyle did not last. The mullet-like cropped hair and lilac eyeshadow certainly do not work for us.
