In what was obviously part of her master plan to kill her old Hannah Montana image Miley Cyrus had her hair shorn to a punk style crop that, admittedly, looked pretty awesome. But now, she has decided that the punky pixie look has to go, now that she’s changed her image, and she wants those long locks back. She is so desperate for her hair to grow that she is pulling her hair at night, but not out, just in an attempt to make it longer.
Way back in February Miley told E! News that they would never catch her sporting long locks again. But like the old saying goes, “It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind,” and she has. Apparently now that she has pretty much destroyed any vestiges of Disney in her appearance she is happy to get that long “Hannah Montana” hair back.
The 20 year-old performer told her gal pal, and Co-host of Fashion Police, Kelly Osbourne that she is trying very hard to grow out her punkish pixie cut. She revealed, “I’m secretly tugging on it every night and taking Viviscal. I’m not going to lie. But I’m going to rock it while I have it!”
On top of Miley Cyrus pulling the ends of her hair, taking care not to pull it out, and taking the hair loss supplements, she hasn’t counted out the use of extensions. She revealed that she just loves a good weave and that she can’t help but love a good [hair] piece.
It is understandable that Miley wants to grow her hair back. She’s proven that unlike Samson, she doesn’t need that long wavy hair to enforce her strength as a performer. Besides growing out of her Disney beginnings, she’s grown out of the need to stick to bubblegum pop to please her fans. They have shown that they like the new Miley.
While her older fans may not like the goth punk look that the young performer has chosen over the squeaky clean one that she had before, her real fans love it.
Image and short hair being grown out aside, Cyrus has also said that her music style won’t be changing. She told MTV, “You can just mix white trash and Chanel, that’s me. That’s my ultimate look. Pretty much everything is weird bondage stores except obviously my jewelry—gotta keep it classy with Chanel. I wear a lot of jewelry during the day, so I pretty much just come with my own jewelry, and give me some underwear to wear with it, and I call it a day.”
Considering that the outfits she wears seem to consist of little more than underwear, we can see what she means. But Miley seems to be saying that neither her hair nor her clothing – or lack thereof – make up who she is and where she is going.
The 20 year-old ex-Disney princess is still evolving and she knows it. So despite Miley Cyrus pulling her hair at night, but hopefully not too hard or it will take much longer to grow back, she may want to have a word with someone about just how good that hair loss stuff really is. Not to point out the obvious, but if it really worked wouldn’t Bruce Willis have bought truckloads of the stuff?
