There’s a lot of change happening for Miranda Lambert, 30, lately. She lost a noticeable amount of weight over the past few months to the point where some people wondered whether she’d gone too far. Now Miranda has cut her very long hair into a bob with side bangs. She showed off the new look at a retro-themed party for her album, Platinum, and her top-of-the-charts single, Automatic. These photos are from that event. It looks fun!
US Weekly clarifies that Miranda didn’t get this new haircut just now, she merely removed the extensions after getting it chopped last month:
In early June, she showed off shoulder-length hair before adding in extensions for promotional appearances later in the month. “I cut her hair three weeks ago before the CMT Awards and CMA Fest,” Lee Wright, stylist at Style House in Nasvhille, tells Us Weekly. “She was ready for a change. But she wanted to wear extensions for her performance.” The length of her newest haircut is the shortest as it falls just below her ears.
I’m honestly surprised at how different she looks. She was looking incredibly glam lately and this cut gives her a kind of “everywoman” look. I’m trying to be gentle because I don’t like it at all, but maybe she’ll add extensions again or style it differently. It’s a little too “puffy” to me and I think it ages her.
Miranda did an interview with Huffpo last week where she talked about her weight loss (everyone asks) and about her relationship with her husband, Blake Shelton. She also said that she’s into shooting guns and that her father, a police officer, taught her gun safety from an early age. I particularly liked Miranda’s thoughts on body image. When the interviewer brought up the subject of role models, Miranda said “I just am who I am… I may be a good role model because I just am always positive about body image: Just be who you are. It doesn’t matter what size, it’s all about who you are on the inside and what you stand for.” (You can see a clip of that interview on Huffpo.)
So maybe Miranda is not so caught up in her image, but I tend to think this hairstyle isn’t ‘her.’ She’s always had lots of big hair. This is definitely a change for her.
