Miley Cyrus wasn’t even old enough to vote when she set out to make us forget the girl who made her famous, Hannah Montana. You can see it in the hairstyles, fashions and even in the way she acts (like a spoiled former child star). Sometimes the new woman wasn’t so radical. At the Kids’ Choice Awards and the Grammys she chose the kind of hairstyles you would expect of an adult at big awards shows. For the first event, her do had a slanted side part and brond haircolor (blond highlights on brown). For the second occasion, Miley wore a barely-there part with hair lifted in the same direction as long side bangs. The results for the Kids is all-American while the Grammys are oh-so-sophisticated.
For the cover of Marie Claire and the movie So Undercover, the grown-up looks suit the situation (and Miley’s desire to run away from her Disney role). The sexy styles are very similar, but different, too. The Marie Claire M.C. is shorter, blond on top of brown, and the loose curls resemble soft waves. Paired with ethereal fashions the results are more angelic than sensual. Even the Victoria’s Secret style is calm in comparison to Miley in 2009 when she resembled an exotic dancer. Back then Little Hannah Montana fans (or should we say their mothers) were disappointed to see M.C. going in an opposite direction of her first starring role.
Who knows what the future holds for Miley and her hair, but don’t expect a return to simply pretty looks. Maybe when she’s in her 40s, Miley will yearn for those days when her curly-wavy, waist-length mane with the top pulled back reflected Miss Montana’s fresh-faced innocence.
