Miley Cyrus kind of came out of her shell this year and made some pretty bold beauty statements along the way. And, while I’m sure she learned a lot about herself in the process, there were many hair- and makeup-related lessons the rest of us got out of her transformation, too. Here’s what we learned.
Lesson 1: If you want to cut your hair, cut your hair. It’s your hair. The only person who has to love it is you. (And for the record, I approve of her short cut!)
Lesson 2: When you’re newly engaged, think extra-hard about the nail polish choices you make. You want to be confident with the color people will be staring at when they look at your ring.
Lesson 3: Breathe. Bad hair doesn’t always run in families.
Lesson 4: Just ’cause you’re at a formal event doesn’t mean you can’t wear bright blue nail polish. You just have to keep the rest of your look a little simpler so nothing competes.
Lesson 5: Ombre hair color can actually work on short hair. True story.
