She has appeared in six of her parents' films: Father of the Bride, I Love Trouble, Father of the Bride Part IIThe Parent Trap, What Women Want, and The Affair of the Necklace. Her older sister Annie has also made film appearances;[1] the twin characters in The Parent Trap were named after Hallie and Annie.[4]

Meyers-Shyer attended high school at Crossroads School.[1] She originally enrolled at the University of Southern California to study screenwriting, but transferred to The New School where she graduated with a degree in literature.[1] She made her screenwriting and directorial debut with the film Home Again (2017), which stars Reese Witherspoon and was released in September.[5]

In 2012, it was announced that Meyers-Shyer's script The Chelsea would be made into a film starring Felicity Jones and directed by Nancy Meyers.[6] In 2017, Meyers said her daughter's project ran into casting problems, and Meyers-Shyer "just moved on from it."[7]
