Miley Cyrus's Bowl Cut: An Open Letter

Miley Cyrus haircut FameFlynet

Dearest Lloyd Christmas Miley Cyrus,

Isn’t growing out a haircut the worst? There’s nothing to do about those awkward pieces that fall in your face, while the rest refuses to be wrangled into any kind of a style. Listen, Llo — oops, Miley. We feel you. What are you supposed to do with a pixie that’s taking its sweet time becoming a bob?

Well, this is definitely one option. You could wear it like a bowl cut. You could call your BFF Harry Dunne (as played by Jeff Daniels) and get into your giant shaggy dog van and have a road trip adventure. (On second thought, you might actually have too much fun doing that, given your propensity for dancing with giant shaggy bears.) You could don high-waisted overalls for the cherry on top of the questionable look sundae, that’s for sure.

Or. Maybe you could look at one of the many other stars with gracefully growing-out pixies and take a cue from them. Let Charlize guide you, child. Look to Lawrence. Michelle Williams won’t guide you astray. We know you’re not trying to save money by having Tish put a bowl on your head and snip around it, so get thee to a hairdresser and pick a look that isn’t obscuring that pretty face with its bangs and general absurdity.

With a loving eyeroll,

PEOPLE StyleWatch

P.S. Thank you for the excuse to watch Dumb and Dumber clips for 15 minutes and call it work.

My thoughts on this letter, not the haircut:

I’m not a fan of Miley’s but I am even less a fan of hateful snark disguised as comedy.

This “funny letter” is the reason social media has turned us all into uncivilized hateful, people.


I agree Julie, well said

hahaha this letter is too funny! love it! :)

The letter is spot on. The real question for me, however, is why she doesn’t have any true friends willing to give the girl a clue?

be careful – Moe was always the meanest of the 3 Stooges :-D

just my opinion... O_o on

Wow that really does look very unflattering. She just took 2 steps back and made it even worse by cutting it so it hangs in her face even more. I hope she gets her life back on track before she becomes the next Amy Winehouse. So sad to see blessed people with true talent waste away…

Lighten up, Julie…”hateful snark”…this isn’t even classified as mean-spirited…

Hilarious…kudos to the writer.
The added links/clips are epic…

Go screw yourselves People Magazine

I actually thought this was hilarious. About people saying hateful comments are bad for society.. I mostly agree with you except that I think Miley needs to hear some harsh things about her recent choices so that she doesn’t end up joining the Club 27. It’s really all in her best interest we are making fun of her! I don’t know what it is that she is doing these bizarre things to compensate for but she needs to snap out of this crazy chick-drugged up phase she’s got going on.

People “Style Watch,”
Mean and unnecessary “letter.” She no doubt, knows exactly what she’s doing to get the maximum amount of publicity. Not necessarily a fan on hers, but there is no good reason for this letter. Except to get attention for yourself, the letter writer that is, not Miley.
