Miley Cyrus' Hair Needs A New PR Agent

As much as the gossip magazines have had a field day psychoanalyzing Miley Cyrus and her recent punk-rock haircut, it's hardly a sign that she's spiraling out of control. Can everyone just take a collective breath and remember what they were like as a teenager? Hair experimentation is pretty much standard stuff people.

Personally, I think she looks quite cool and her plump, 19-year old skin allows her to pull off almost any cut or color she may want to try.

So, no. Miley Cyrus didn't pull a Brittany Spears and chop of her long, silky locks in some rash, desperate rebellious moment but she did mess up.

What Miley should have done is contact Locks of Love and donate her beautiful hair to a worthy cause.

Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides wigs and hair pieces to financially disadvantaged children under 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. The goal is to return a sense of self-esteem and "normalcy" to these children by providing the highest quality hair prostheses available.

It takes 6-10 donated ponytails of 10" or longer to make 1 hairpiece so volunteers are constantly needed. Donating is actually quite a simple process and you need not make any greater effort than sitting in the chair at your regular hair salon. As long as you meet the basic requirements all you need to do is seal your chopped, braided ponytail in a plastic baggie and mail it off to the following:

Locks of Love
234 Southern Blvd.
West Palm Beach, FL  33405-2701

If you would like to be recognized for your gift, you may download and fill-out a very short "hair donation form" and enclose it with your package.

Fear not Miley, your hair will grow back in no time and you can do it right the second time around.  I mean, if Snooki from the "Jersey Shore" can donate her famous poof to Locks of Love, you can too.

And for anyone who's about to undergo chemotherapy, it might feel very empowering to deal with your impending hair loss by cutting it off yourself and donating it rather than watching it fall out strand by strand. Tie on a gorgeous headscarf and find strength knowing that you're helping a child in need.
