A Best: Miley Cyrus Chops Off Her Hair Into a Pompadour
Best and Worst Beauty Moments of 2012

Oh what a year in beauty we've had. In this slideshow, I share the good, the bad and the ugly. For example, I love it when celebrities chop off their boring long hair into pompadours (Miley!) and pixies (Anne Hathaway), opt for a little bit of color (Christina) and show us all the secrets behind their amazing red carpet makeup (thank you Kim Kardashian). But I also love it when beauty goes bad, which it has this year in the most fabulous and not-so-fabulous of ways.

My favorite bad beauty this year resides in the makeup and nails department. You'll just have to see Tyra Banks' "Did God Give Her Those" eyebrows and Lana Del Rey's "God So Did Not Give Her Those" dagger nails. There are a couple see-through skirts and one divorce transformation that blew me away.

But first, let's talk about Miley's haircut. When the singer cut off her hair in August, she tweeted that she'd never felt more like herself. I love the look of the pompadour on her, but others in the media haven't been so impressed. See Miley's hairstyles before the big cut here.
