Miley Cyrus didn’t mean for her hair to change her life, it just did.

Miley Cyrus LOVES her haircut, and what it did for her as a person. She feels like her haircut changed her life. I don’t know if it was the hair that changed her life – or if she changed around the same time she cut her hair, but who knows. She certainly is not the same person she used to be with her longer, brown hair. She’s gone all sorts of crazy on us. Walking around without pants, a bra, you name it!

Miley sat down with the Toronto Sun and talked about her hair, her new music video for “We Can’t Stop,” being named #1 on the Maxim Hot 100 list and more!

Don’t take her so seriously: “People don’t realize actually how pun-ny it is when I’m doing things. They’re like, ‘It really feels like you can’t stop.’ ‘It is!’ … What is making my (new) record consistent is the fact that (the songs are) all different and that’s where I am. I’m at a point where it’s like I know who I am, but I’m know that I’m not finished figuring that out and I won’t finished be until I’m in the dirt.”

Her “We Can’t Stop” video: “People are watching like, ‘Cute cat plays with yarn,’ for three hours a lot more than they’re watching anyone else’s music video. And it’s because it makes them happy, it makes them laugh, whatever. So I wanted my video to make people laugh ‘cause I’m the first one to make jokes at myself. My godmother is Dolly Parton who is constantly making fun of herself. She’s like, ‘It takes a lot of money to look this cheap, honey.’ … I wanted the video to be that kind of confident.”

Her hair: “No one would have planned a haircut to change my life. I didn’t plan a haircut to change my life. I just cut my hair and then it really changed my life. There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident. And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair.”

She was called a lesbian: “Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.’ I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.”

#1 on Maxim’s list: “People think short hair, they think tom boy … and I’ve obviously done the opposite ’cause when I cut my hair, I did my first Maxim cover where I got No. 1 (in their annual hot list). And it wasn’t about me being the sexiest. It was about the fans voting. But it’s something I loved. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Maxim cover with a girl with short hair.”

I don’t know if her hair deserves all the credit for her transformation. She just grew up – right? She’s becoming a woman and figuring out who she is – and for that – I commend her. I may not understand her 90% of the time, but she’s just finding herself. Who cares what she does to her hair – or what she wears. She can’t be a role model for young girls her whole life – can you imagine the pressure?

Perfect Camping Tool: Tresemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo!

Are you a camper? Man, I love me some camping. Erin and I go several times a year with our families, and we just have an absolute BLAST. We love to swim, swim, swim! We have very different needs when it comes to camping, however. She’s a shower-twice-a-day-while-camping kind of girl, and I’m more of a dry-shampoo-I’ll-get-clean-in-the-lake kind of girl. I can go a day without showering, sometimes two, and I just know it gives Erin the heebie jeebies. All I really need is a good dry shampoo – so sue me! (What kind of camper are you?)

I LOVE dry shampoos. They SAVE me on those in-between-shower days. I got my hands on Tresemme’s Fresh Start Dry Shampoo’s and I fell in love! They are awesome! Just spray it into your dry hair, and your hair will feel clean and smell fresh! I love the Fresh Start line – they even have a Color Care dry shampoo! Perfect!

Now there’s no need to miss a fresh look and feel, even when you skip a traditional shampoo. This dry shampoo is infused with a UVA complex and leaves no visible residue.

You can pick up any of these amazing products – at a Target near you!

Here’s where Erin and I went camping last weekend – Riffe Lake in Washington! Beautiful!

 

 

Need a summer shampoo and conditioner? Try Tresemme Platinum Strength!

Summer is the season for surf, sun, and showing off! Many women are focusing on getting fit for the warmer weather – but time spent in the gym can take a toll on your hair. Luckily, you don’t have to sacrifice style to break a sweat! TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist John D. has compiled his top tips to help you keep your hair in shape before, during and after your workout:

1. After you exercise, quickly blow-dry your hair to get rid of any excess moisture that may have accumulated during your workout. Apply TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo (available in Volumizing, Smoothing and Color Care varieties), concentrating on the scalp and roots of the hair. Then, shake the hair out using your fingertips to evenly distribute the product. Your hair will be refreshed and ready to go.

2. To avoid the tell tale “dent” that seems impossible to flatten after a workout, try a loose topknot instead of a ponytail. Loosely twist the hair on top of the head, and secure with a few hairpins rather than an elastic. After your workout, release the pins and shake out your hair for a volumized look.

3. To protect your hair from breakage caused by tight elastics and hairpins, try holding the hair back from the face and shoulders with a handkerchief or cloth headband. This will limit breakage and will eliminate dents.

4. If you decide to use a blow dryer, flat iron or other styling tools, be sure to apply TRESemmé Platinum Strength Heat Protect Spray to shield your hair from harmful heat.

5. Next time you do a wash, use TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo & Conditioner, which can repair up to two years of damage and leave your hair healthy, shiny and ready to take on all your summer activities.

I’ve been using this shampoo and conditioner for weeks now, and I’m loving it!! My hair feels so much healthier after using these. Considering all the chlorine and sun my hair is exposed to – that’s saying a lot!

REVIEW: Umberto’s Roman Oil Serum!

This exotic elixir works magic on all hair types, mine included….and that’s really saying something. Most Stubborn Hair of the Year Award Goes To: ME!

Roman Oil Serum from Umberto features everything that an oil serum should, and leaves out everything it shouldn’t.

  • Lightweight
  • Moisturizes
  • Conditions Hair
  • Smoothes Coarse Hair
  • Tames Frizz
  • Enhances Shine

I’ve been using this wonderful serum since I went to LA and visited the Umberto Salon in Beverly Hills personally last year (see the pictures from our visit to Umberto Salon here!) Unlike many serums, this sheer formula instantly absorbs into the hair. It doesn’t sit on top – making your hair feel greasy and slimy. Umberto added natural oils from his native Italy that provide amazing conditioning benefits all day long.

Pump one small drop on your palm, and distribute through hair. You won’t be sorry! This product is ridiculous!

You can also find this at Target!
