beauty queen: miley cyrus

keep your cool and go super-short this summer.

It is hot in New York right now--the term 'heat wave' has been thrown around in the NYLON office--and we're getting our annual urge to just take shears to our head to chop off our hair.

If the crazed-lady look isn't your thing, take a page from Miley Cyrus; the musician stopped by Good Morning America's NYC set with a deep combover punctuating her half-shaved head, and she looked cool in every sense of the word. It's pulled together while still being super edgy--and of course, a fool-proof way for standing the heat this summer.

We'll let you handle the buzz-cut part--here's how to take it from there:

TEXTURIZE IT: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray - $39
Targeting the roots, spray your entire head of hair with this dry shampoo that doubles as a texturizer.

TEASE IT: Marilyn Teaser Brush - $16
Again you'll want to focus on the roots--here, give them a little tease with a brush to really get some volume going, styling your hair in the direction you want it "parted."

HOLD IT: Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer Finishing Spray - $38
To prevent those annoying hair-in-eye episodes, apply a good coating of this flexible-but-firm hairspray.
