Miley Cyrus Says She’ll Never Have Long Hair Again but Her Reason Sounds Ridiculous

OMG 18

miley cyrusMiley Cyrus' hair. Let's talk about it. It's short. It's shaved. It's dyed blonde, and it's her favorite thing, ever. She told E! that's she's really feeling her short 'do and doesn't think she could go back to having long hair ever again. In fact, she looks back on old photos of herself with extensions and wishes someone would have ripped them out of her head.

I have to agree with Miley, here -- I think she looks awesome with her short hair and that it totally suits her. The only thing I'm not getting is her explanation about how low-maintenance it is. Shaving the sides of your head once a week isn't nothing, you know.

She says:

My fiancé [Liam Hemsworth] loves it. It’s so much easier to go shave the sides once a week, rather than getting your roots done and all this stuff.

OK. I'm confused. Doesn't she still have to get her roots done even though her hair's short? I'd argue that she even has to be more diligent about keeping up her dye job since roots would be more obvious when there's less hair. Plus, when it's buzzed, you gotta dye that part a lot, I'd imagine, to keep it blonde.

I'm totally sold on the short hair look, just don't try to sell me that it's easier. Sure, there's less to wash, but in terms of upkeep, it seems just as time-consuming as long hair.

That said, no one's doing short hair better than Miley. I love it just as much as she and Liam do, which isn't weird at all. Nope.

Do you prefer having short hair or long hair?

I love my hair short. Its been short for about 12 years now. This is the first time its been longer than my ears in those 12 years.

Shorter hair is easier to dye, and especially bleach, because it takes less time, since the heat from your scalp makes the dye work faster.

Shaving is easier than trimming. Shaving once a week, is easier than styling every day. As a fellow short hair-a-holic, she makes sense to me.

Short hair is way easier than long hair unless you always wear a messy bun.  I've had mine for a few years now and it literally takes me 3 minutes to fix in the morning.  I don't dye my hair but I'd imagine its much easier since you don't have to get all the other hair out of the way and it does "cook" faster with the heat of your scalp.

I prefer myself with long hair, it's short right now because I shaved it last summer in a rash decision. I'm regretting it. But Miley looks cute with short hair and if it works for her then great! It's not for me.

I prefer long hair on me.  It's just long and mostly straight, so all I do is brush it.  I don't style it or blow dry it or anything.  For me, it's easy to have long hair.

that hair looks so friggin stupid. she looks like Justin Bieber with that hair cut. and her reason is stupid too- shaving it once a week and probably touching up the color once every 2 weeks is not low maintenance.

Long hair has always been easier for me. Whenever I've had short hair it took a lot of effort to make it look decent. When it's long and I'm running short on time a braid or ponytail is quick and easy to do. Usually I just tie it in a knot. Not to mention short hair just isn't flattering on me.

Haha long hair is sooo much easier for me. My hair gets this strange wave when it's short. Like, no matter how short I cut it, it was always there.

I prefer long even if it's harder to keep under control... and u can do so much more stuff with med-long hair than short. although if i was slimmer I probably wouldn't mind trying some fun short hair styles. I just wouldn't go as short as Miley's...
