Miley Cyrus is a name synonymous with daring fashion choices and bold hair statements. And this summer, she has once again captivated the beauty world with her latest hair transformation: the modern bouffant blowout.

Known for her ever-evolving style and fearless experimentation, Cyrus has recently embarked on a beauty renaissance, exploring nostalgic aesthetics while infusing them with her signature contemporary edge.

In recent years, Cyrus has been embracing a variety of voluminous hairstyles, from retro disco curls to glamorous bouffants, drawing inspiration from iconic figures such as Tina Turner, Brigitte Bardot, and even her own former persona as Miley Stewart. 

However, Cyrus’s approach to retro-inspired looks is anything but dated. With her distinctive flair and modern sensibility, she effortlessly revitalizes classic styles, infusing them with a fresh perspective that resonates with contemporary audiences. 

In her latest venture, Cyrus channels the timeless elegance of the bouffant hairstyle, a symbol of sophistication and glamour popularized in the 1960s.

Yet, true to form, Cyrus puts her own unique spin on the classic look, incorporating elements of ’90s nostalgia and modern texture to create a style that feels both timeless and current.

In promotional photos for the fifth season of Netflix’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, Cyrus showcased her modern bouffant blowout. The hairstyle, characterised by its sky-high volume and bouncy texture, is elevated with contemporary face-framing layers and curtain bangs, adding depth and dimension to the overall look.

According to celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway (per Glamour), Cyrus’s hairstyle is perfectly aligned with the current trend resurgence of past decades, with beauty icons from the ’60s to the ’90s serving as primary sources of inspiration.

Redway emphasizes the versatility of drawing from history, noting that modern interpretations can be achieved through innovative shapes, products, and style combinations.  

“Looks from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s are coming back and providing inspiration for this big-hair trend,” she explains. “There are so many new ways to modernize the look today by using interesting shapes, different products, and even mixing different styles into one.”

To achieve Cyrus’s signature hairstyle, Redway recommends starting with a volumizing spray or mousse to prep the hair for heat styling. Products like Nexxus Unbreakable Care Root Lift Thickening Spray and Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Mousse provide the necessary foundation for added height and hold.

Using a large round brush or dry brush, blow-dry the hair section by section, lifting each away from the face to enhance volume at the roots.

Velcro rollers can then be used to set the roots until cool, ensuring that the height is maintained throughout the day. Finally, finish with a medium-hold hairspray to set the style in place and add lasting hold.

Miley Cyrus’s bouffant blowout encapsulates the best of both beauty worlds: timeless elegance meets contemporary flair. Consider us sold.
