What’s the Fuss? Why The World Loves to Talk About Miley’s Hair

The Miley Cyrus we knew on Disney is long gone. The former Hannah Montana star that inspired girls around the nation teamed up with producer Pharrell Williams to inject her new rebel image into her music. In a bid to shed her innocent star image, the singer/actress took an extreme haircut and dyed her hair platinum blonde. This new look spurred a lot of talk as people began to see the real Miley.

Miley’s Haircut Inspired by a Jonas Brothers Wig
Miley told V magazine that the Jonas Brothers were a source of inspiration for her first haircut. She revealed that the idea of cutting her hair took effect after wearing a wig with a Jonas swoop. She liked the look of the short do and went for it.

Two weeks after wearing the wig, Miley had her hairstylist Chris McMillan shape her new do, and Pharell was the first to hear of the new makeover.

According to Cyrus, the new cut signaled her determination to change and to be different. And she certainly achieved what she set out to do. The new image, including the haircut, took the world by storm. While some people are all for it, a lot more people expressed their disapproval of Miley’s new image.

Miley Reveals The Secret To Her Long Hair
Miley’s healthy brown hair became her trademark as the star of Hannah Montana. But Miley set the record straight, and no doubt disappointed her fan base when she revealed that her brown hair came down to extensions.

She pointed to a picture on the front page of Harper’s Bazaar – taken many years before – and reflected that it was a simple life then. But that simple life included 350 extensions in her hair. The hair was not real – at least not hair that grew out of her head.

Miley Loves Her Short Hair
While there’s a lot of buzz about the singer’s daring, edgy cut, Miley claims that she has no regrets. In fact, she loves it so much that she can’t imagine ever going back to having long hair. Women would agree that longer hair is more versatile. The problem is that most women style their long hair in a ponytail or bun. According to Cyrus, a bold new haircut is the best way to get out of a hairstyling rut.

A stylist suggested that Miley can always switch her look and add extensions if she wants to go long again. But according to the singer, that is out of the question because she hates extension. She goes so far as to say that they’re creepy.

The new style is low maintenance – just wash and wear. Miley claims it’s easier than that because the style looks fabulous even when it goes unwashed.

So as some onlookers lament the loss of Miley’s long hair, others are getting used to it because it’s here to stay.

5 Easy Hairstyles for Work

Looking good every day is pretty hard. Sometimes you wake up in the morning and you just don’t have it in you to spend time doing your hair. This is fair, and here are a few easy ways to deal with that problem.

Loop Ponytail

This is simple, five minute and above all manageable hairstyle that can give you a clean cut look and make it look like you went the extra mile on a simple hairstyle First spray your hair smooth with hairspray, then pull your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with elastic. Use your fingers to separate your hair above elastic and create a hole that is centred above it. Pull the ponytail through the hole and pull it taut. Smart, simple, professional.

DIY Ballerina Bun

If you need to look elegant and like you really tried with your hair without wasting the effort this is a hairstyle that really makes it look like you care. Flip your hair into a high ponytail, use a holder to secure. Use a smoothing brush to tease your hair to give the illusion of volume, alternately if you don’t have the hair volume a BioTHIK treatment may be worth considering. Next, twist your hair and wrap it around the base to create the shape. Secure this with bobby pins until you can shake your head without slipping. Then just smooth the hair down.

Bubble Ponytail

This will give a bouncy excitable and cheerful image to a hairstyle and will make you seem lively and fully energized. First pull your hair into a ponytail, tease out the length, starting at the hair tie. Then tie another elastic band around the ponytail about a third of the way down from the base, then another about two thirds of the way down. Finally slide the elastic bands toward the base. This should bunch things up and create bubbles.

Chignon Twist

A twisted chignon can pull of an elegant look and project a simple no-fuss attitude that will make you look intense and focused. First, get your hair straight and tie a low ponytail. Then twist the ponytail, if you’re feeling energetic divide it into separate sections and wrap them around each other. Then secure them with another hair band. Curl the twisted hair around the base of the ponytail. Once there’s a full circle around the base, pin the other end of the ponytail to your head.

Knot Ponytail

This is another cool twist on a basic ponytail that you don’t’ have to wrestle with. Divide your hair in half and tie it in a double knot. Secure the knotted ponytail with an elastic band and a couple of pins, then just tease the end, done and dusted no fuss muss and only two minutes work.

So if you’re running late, or you just don’t feel like really fixing your hair on the way out of the door, this is a quick way to get things done.

4 Ways To Colour Your Hair Without Using Chemicals

Natural Hair Dye Methods

Everybody changes their hair colour now and again, often accompanied by a new haircut, or done simply to cover some unwanted grey or white hairs. Many people do not exactly know the chemicals used in hair dyes, however nobody really wants to use things that can be damaging to their health.

Why Should You Use Natural Hair Dye

Using natural hair dye is the safest way to colour your hair without receiving harmful effects such as allergic reactions, respiratory disorders, and even cancer. Some hair dyes can be marked ‘natural’, but do in fact contain harmful chemicals such as ammonia, peroxide, resorcinol, and even PPD. PDD contains a very harmful toxin that can cause an allergic reaction.

How Does Natural Hair Dye Work?

Natural hair dyes work progressively, over a period of time, although some more potent hair dyes, such as walnuts and coffee, can work almost immediately. Natural hair dyes usually need to be used more than once to obtain a consistent desired result, although some ingredients can work almost immediately.

Options For Natural Hair Dye

There are a couple of options useful for naturally dyeing your hair, most of which work quite well. These include lemons, walnuts, coffee, and vegetable juice.

    • Lemons help to lighten or add highlights to hair, and are used an effective natural bleach. It works more slowly for people with darker hair, however its effectiveness can be intensified by exposing hair to sunlight.
    • The use of walnuts is a more popular way to colour hair. By using walnut hulls and walnut powders, you are able to dye your hair quite easily. Crush walnut hulls down and coat them with boiling water, leaving them for three days. Alternatively, add a few tablespoons of black walnut powder, into boiled water. To achieve a darker colour, allow the mixture to soak for a couple of hours longer than you usually would.
    • Coffee is a more generally used to darken the hair. The effect is created by allowing the coffee to seep into your hair and then rinsing or dipping certain parts of your hair you wish to darken.

Natural juices such as beet and carrot can be used to add red tints to your hair colour.?

They work separately or together, and as often as necessary to reach the colour you want. Beet juice hair dye is a great way to create a strawberry blonde colour, and works more effectively after leaving the dye in for around 60 minutes.

Testing Natural Hair Dyes

Before testing out any of these natural hair dyes, it is advisable to test one, or all of them, on a small section or simple strand of your hair. Make sure you find out how your natural hair dye will react with a previously used chemical hair dye, in case of a bad reaction.

If you’re more about just your natural hair colour but can’t seem to get it thick enough or full enough check out websites like transitionhair.com.au or other hair loss clinics to regain that mane and if you want to change colours stick with all these natural hair colours to keep your hair healthy.
