Elisabeth Moss has cut her shoulder-length hair short and gone platinum-blond, à la Miley Cyrus - but we prefer to think she's getting her Twiggy on, in keeping with the essence of "Mad Men" and its 1960s setting. Twiggy, of course, is British model Leslie Lawson, whose androgynous look made her a fashion icon and otherwise famous face in the mid-'60s. Moss rocked her new 'do on the "For a Good Time, Call ... " red carpet Tuesday in New York, supporting the film starring Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller, Seth Rogen and Justin Long, which opens Aug. 31 in limited release.

Scott McKenzie, whose 1967 hit single "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" captured the spirit of the '60s flower-power movement and became a generational touchstone, has died. He was 73. McKenzie died Saturday at his home in Silver Lake, said Matt Pook, a longtime friend and neighbor. A statement on McKenzie's website said he had been ill with Guillain Barre syndrome, a disease affecting the nervous system. "If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair," McKenzie gently sang in his biggest hit, written by his longtime friend, John Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas.

Christina Aguilera's hair is going the opposite direction of Miley Cyrus': While Miley was taking the color out and the length short, Xtina is leaving it long and adding color. The color purple, as a matter of fact. Aguilera showed off her new look Sunday at a media event for "The Voice," where she appeared with fellow judges Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green and Adam Levine, host Carson Daly and producer Mark Burnett. The series premieres Sept. 10. The big news of the event, in addition to the purple?

Wait a second. Was that a picture of Aaron Carter? Maybe Michelle Williams? Nope. It's Miley Cyrus, y'all! The actress and singer caused fans to do a double-take when she posted photos of her new hairstyle on Twitter. Cyrus, who made headlines earlier this summer with her engagement to "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth, is sporting a short, platinum-blond pixie cut, and loving it. "Feeling so happy in my skin," tweeted Cyrus. The new cut sparked mixed reactions around the Web, but Cyrus was quick to respond to her "haters" via Twitter, although here we have edited out her anatomical expletive.

Miley Cyrus has changed her hair - dramatically. She's gone for a platinum blond power-pixie cut, and she's rocking it. And it turns out it's something she's wanted to do since she was touring as Hannah Montana. Following in the footsteps of the likes of Anne Hathaway, Emma Watson, Michelle Williams and more , the 19-year-old pulled off a dramatic makeover , the transition to which is shown above. Helping Cyrus get the look she wanted was stylist-to-the-stars Chris McMillan, who can be seen in a picture tweeted along the way. " ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ feeling so happy in my skin," Cyrus said late Sunday night, accenting the tweet with a photo and a flurry of hearts. Still, she battled some haters, fighting back by repeating that age-old phrase about opinions being like, well, something else that everyone has, and reinforcing that she's digging the new look.

Summer can play havoc on the hair with prolonged exposure to the sun, seawater and chlorine as well as the inevitable perspiration and humidity that accompany the season. "It's important to always keep the hair hydrated; deep condition at least weekly," says Marco Pelusi, owner of the namesake West Hollywood salon. He recommends using a leave-in conditioner to lock in moisture and guard against color fading, both in the pool and while lounging in the sun. This summer, there's a profusion of new products designed to make hair care easy and effective.

Mitt Romney botched his introduction of his vice presidential running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, on Saturday morning, but the Republican has good company. Candidate Barack Obama also gave his running mate, Joe Biden, an inadvertent "promotion" four years ago when he introduced the Delaware senator at a rally in Springfield, Ill. The earlier Obama flub suggests that Romney's gaffe, as awkward as it appeared on live television, will not have any long-term effect on the Republican ticket, nor will some other incongruous bits of stagecraft in the Romney-Ryan roll out. Photos: Paul Ryan announced as Romney's running mate In introducing Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, in front of the battleship Wisconsin on Saturday morning, Romney said: “Join me in welcoming the next president of the United States, Paul Ryan.” Ryan came to take the microphone, but Romney quickly returned and added: “Every now and then I'm known to make a mistake.

OAKLAND — Mike Trout of the Angels had already stolen two bases. It was clear he was itching to go again. But the pitcher was Oakland reliever Pedro Figueroa , a left-hander whose rapid slide-step delivery and catcher Derek Norris' strong arm prohibited such a dare. Trout nonetheless put his streak of 26 consecutive stolen bases on the line Monday. And was safe again. "He learns every day about getting better reads, he watches film, we go over all the pitchers' times from the mound to home plate," third base and baserunning coach Dino Ebel said Tuesday.

Justin Bieber, this is not how a loyal subject behaves. Slamming Prince William, that is. The Canadian-born Biebs, famous in part for his lush locks, stole a moment in a recent magazine interview to slam His Royal Highness Prince William for his thinning hair. "I mean, there are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia," the 18-year-old told British magazine Rolla Coaster ( via the Daily Mail). "I don't know why he doesn't just get those things, those products.

LONDON - If gymnast Olga Korbut were competing on the present-day world stage, no doubt there would be fierce debate on such pressing issues like hairstyle and makeup choices. You can just imagine this on Twitter: Aren't Korbut's pigtails untidy? Maybe the hashtags should be #frivilousitems and #lameconcerns. It has gotten truly silly when it comes to the debate about champion teen gymnast Gabby Douglas and her hair. Actually, it had gotten silly on Twitter and Facebook long before the start of the London Olympics.
