Miley has a long and messy ponytail that has beachy waves. This is a great look when there is no time to shampoo.
Her own hair wraps around and makes the holder. The top has back combing to create height and lift for a bouffant-ish look. Lighter highlights are sprinkled around the crown. This photo was taken of her with Bret Michaels at the "Good Morning America" Summer Concert Series on June 18th.
