At last week's amfAR Inspiration Gala, our favorite unicorn of tolerance and happiness, Miley Cyrus, wore her hair in a red-glitter-encrusted braid that perfectly matched the hearts on her Jeremy Scott for Moschino gown. If you want to sparkle like Cyrus, you'll need a glitter gel called Major Moonshine, created by celebrity colorist Danny Moon, who specializes in a hair technique he dubbed colombré (he recently dyed Madonna's hair hot pink). This product is not the watered-down glitter gel you used to order from the dELiA*s catalogue, but some serious, diamond-level hair glitter that comes in an array of colors, packed in little pots. Moon, who endearingly speaks exactly how you would expect a hairstylist who works with Cyrus to speak, told the Cut about how he developed his Moonshine and his signature chromatic style.

Major Moonshine was created in a period of time of isolation and change. I set out to see the world not through a black-and-white lens or biased eyes. I went out into humanity to create connections for people through my art. I based this on my belief in a color revolution. A revolution against traditional hair color and styles that do not reflect who that person really is. It is an exotic mixture of the absolute best products I could find and use. Andy Lecompte, expert hairstylist to the rich and famous, included Major Moonshine in his strategy of excellence. Miley looked like an Angel and Andy was God.
