According to People, the TV personality shared a split-screen of Ryan and "The Year Without a Santa Claus" villain rocking the same spiked hairstyle. The 49-year-old ensured that her fans understood her message by captioning the image:
"I rest my case. #heatmiser vs. @ryanseacrest #haircut #athomehaircut."
Since she shared the post a few hours ago, her followers have given it nearly 50,000 likes with many of them taking to the comment section to drop laughing emojis.
Kelly turned to hair expert Xavier Cruz, who is the founder of Barba Men's Grooming Boutique in New York City, for tips and tricks.
Those who could type not only mentioned how funny the image was, but they also listed the other characters that Ryan looked like with his cut.
Daily Mail noted that the hilarious photo of Ryan had been taken from that morning's broadcast of "Live with Kelly and Ryan" that saw the "American Idol" host learning how to cut his own hair while quarantining in his home.
The episode had also shown Kelly trying her best to give her 22-year-old son, Michael, an amateur haircut. During the segment, Ryan and Kelly turned to hair expert Xavier Cruz, who is the founder of Barba Men's Grooming Boutique in New York City, for tips and tricks.
The hair expert made his husband, Juan Pablo Gomez, his model as he cut the latter's hair on-screen, while Ryan and Kelly did their best to follow along on their own.
While Ryan made use of clippers, his co-host used a pair of kitchen scissors to work on her son's hair.
According to People, Kelly used barrettes to hold back some of her son's hair as she worked through sections of it, while Xavier told clipper users, like Ryan, to start with the largest setting to be on the safe side.
The show's producer, Michael Gelman, later joined in the fun with his daughter, Jamie, who offered to cut his hair.
