Guy Fieri looks unrecognisable without signature spiky blond hair in throwback photo for son Ryder's 16th birthday

GUY Fieri looked unrecognizable without his signature spiky blond hair in a throwback photo for his son Ryder's 16th birthday.

Guy's appearances across Food Network wouldn't have been the same without his distinctive look.

Guy, 53, took to Instagram to wish his son Ryder a happy 16th birthday.

In the Food Network star's first picture, a tiny toddler Ryder hugged his father's shoulder, but Guy looked nearly unrecognizable.

In the throwback post, Guy is pictured without his signature hairdo, and covered up his natural hair with a thick skull cap.

Guy included photos of all of this sons and featured Ryder across the years.

The caption was a sweet tribute which read: "Happy birthday to my super son, Ryder! So proud of you.

"From school to sports to adventures, you can do it all. Most importantly, you're a great person who cares about others and leads by example."

Guy wished his son a happy birthday and signed the note: "Love you!"

The chef has been married to Lori for over 25 years and share two sons together, Hunter and Ryder.

Guy and Lori met in California in 1992 when he was running a restaurant in Long Beach, California.

He has said that he "just knew" she was the one the first time he saw her.

Of course, he won her over by cooking, "The first time I cooked for her, she was just like, 'You made all this?' We both love food, so being able to cook, that was one of the things that impressed her."

The couple were married three years after meeting and both legally changed their last names to Fieri in honor of Guy's late grandfather, who had altered his last name when he immigrated to New York from Italy.


Hunter was born in 1996, the same year his father opened his first restaurant, Johnny Garlic's.

After graduating from high school, Hunter spent a month in Europe traveling to 13 stops.

The trip was developed into a five-episode special called Guy and Hunter’s European Vacation. 

Hunter has said that he hopes to follow in his father's footsteps and has already begun by graduating from The University of Nevada Las Vegas.

"I want to follow in the same path, because I feel like I can kill it with that," Hunter said in a 2018 interview.

"I want it all. I want to open my own restaurants — to have things that I created and things my dad created and run this empire."

Almost ten years after giving birth to Hunter, Lori gave birth to her second son Ryder.

The youngest Fieri has appeared on several television shows with his father but is too young to fully jump into the family business just yet.


Back in October, Guy was spotted hanging out with John Travolta.

John captioned a picture with Guy and others at the table: "Lunch with @guyfieri. What a guy!! A start of a wonderful friendship!"

Guy responded sharing the snap in his stories writing: "Thanks for a great time JT! More adventures to come."

Last month John also shared a pic from lunch with Tommy Lee and his family captioned: "Lovely lunch today with the Lee’s. Happy birthday @brittanyfurlan!"

John appears to be doing the best he can to cope since the passing of his nephew, Sam, in September and his wife, Kelly Preston, in July.


Guy was also spotted with Kristen Stewart.

The actress received a special message from the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives host during her interview on the Today show.

Kristen appeared on the talk show to promote her new film, Spencer, when news anchors, Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie directed the conversation towards her recent engagement.

"I want to comment one more time on your engagement," began Hoda before mentioning a recent comment that the star made about her dream nuptials.

She continued: "I think you said recently that it would be kind of cool if Guy Fieri maybe officiated your wedding."

Kristen first giggled at the recollection followed by a surprised reaction when Hoda revealed that they contacted the chef about the proposition.

The interview continues with a short clip from the Food Network star in response to her request.

"Hey Kristen, Guy Fieri here. I heard through the Flavortown grapevine that you are looking for a sweet spike-haired officiant for your wedding. I'm all in."

Kristen appeared stunned that Guy agreed to be apart of her big day as the hosts tried to gauge if they were both serious about the offer.

"I'm wondering if yours was a real offer. Do you really want him?," asked Hoda, as Kristen excitedly replied: "Absolutely!"

The Twilight actress then jokingly asked the hosts if they had Guy's address.

She joked: "Does he live in LA? We should talk about this!"

Kristen first revealed her hopes for the Guy's Grocery Games host to officiate her wedding during an interview with Howard Stern. 

"We did hear that Guy Fieri from the Food Network officiates a lot of gay weddings," Kristen told Howard.

The restaurateur officiated over 100 gay weddings in 2015 during the annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival in honor of his late sister, who was gay.

Kristen shared: "So, the idea of that man — that sweet, sweet spiky-headed man — coming to our wedding and officiating it, it just makes me laugh so much."
