The supermodel and global ambassador for Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy shares her advice about how to glow with health.
How she nourishes her body
“It’s about having a balance and really trying to eat healthy and organic,” says Miranda. “I also make my own little protein shake to take with me, and always carry little healthy snacks like almonds and goji berries. I try not to be too hard on myself, I do the best that I can, but I believe if you take care of yourself than you will feel better. Health is wealth.”
Her best tips for luscious locks
“It’s a balance between using the right shampoo and conditioner,” says Miranda. “Which is why I like Clear Scalp & Hair, because it works on the scalp to really nourish the hair. One of the ingredients is coconut oil which is one of my favourite things to use and cook with. I also believe in green juices, eating lots of green leafy veggies. Because hair is made of protein it’s important to eat good quality organic protein free-range meat and eggs, and really look after yourself from the inside out.”
“I’ve been doing yoga for 15 years now,” says Miranda. “My favourite pose is Tree Pose. It’s very grounding. When you are traveling so much, that pose resets you. If you can pop your shoes off and feel the grass or sand between your toes it’s even better and very energising.”

“I love working with Miranda,” says Charlotte. “She is such a happy and beautiful soul, and obviously is truly healthy in all aspects of her lie which makes my job very easy.
The benefits of Tree Pose
“This is the perfect pose to keep your feet firmly grounded, strengthen your foundation and remain balanced,” says Charlotte. “When we’re fully grounded and in the moment this can give us the clarity to move forward into our next decision.”
How to do it
- Begin at the top of your mat, with your feet together. Bring your weight into your left side (foot, leg and torso).
- Inhale your right foot onto your left anklebone, knee out wide (to open your hip). Keep your eyes looking softly at one point ahead of you.
- You can breathe and hold here. Alternatively, inhale your foot either below or above (not on your knee) your kneecap. Press your inner foot into your inner thigh muscle to hold yourself into the pose.
- Your hands can stay onto your hips, or inhale your arms up over your head into prayer. Exhale to release your foot and arms back down.
- Hold your chosen variation for 5-10 breaths, and repeat the same variation on the other side.
- To challenge yourself further, you can take your gaze up to your thumbs or even close your eyes for inner balance and clarity
