I think short hair on women can be absolutely beautiful. I was astonished at the backlash Miley Cyrus got from cutting her hair and finally becoming, as what she described, "herself." Her bold move should be applauded, not ridiculed. When did women get so adept at tearing each other down? Miley has rarely, is ever, ridiculed conservative women or their hairstyles, yet when she decides to take a new direction, the nastiness in others emerges. I'm not her #1 fan or a dedicated fan, I just like this new style she has and respect the fact that as a young woman she is staying true to her convictions and styling her hair and dressing the way she likes. We should applaud young women who break down preconceived notions of appearance for all women, one step at a time.
