Just when we thought Miley Cyrus had done it all, she made her boldest style move to date!
On Sunday Miley did something that was heard around the world: she had her hair cut into a pixie with a buzz on the side. While the drastic makeover seems spur-of-the-moment, it’s not. On August 6 Miley tweeted photos of herself in shoulder-length, white blond locks. Hairstylist Chris McMillan did the honors on both of the new dos. McMillan is famous for creating “The Rachel” for Jennifer Aniston, and Miley asked him for something similar. She got a pretty Rachel-like lob (long bob), but that was only a preview of what was to come. Just a week later, Chris completed the Miley makeover that conjures up images of Victoria “Posh” Beckham.
Even before the latest do-overs, Miley was taking mini steps toward the big change. On July 14 she sent followers the photo above right to announce that she had gone blond. If you’re wondering why she’s puckering up, Miley explains, “Now that I’m blonde I gotta give duck lips in every photo.” The photo on left was taken in between then and the top two dos. While there’s been a wild mix of reactions to the final cut, there seems to be consensus that it was time for that high bun to go!

While we were finishing this post, rumors had already started circulating that Miley is hiding her new hair or maybe regretting it. Personally we think she was trying to avoid the paparazzi while walking with her fiance. It will be interesting to see how long Miley will keep the do before grabbing onto some extensions. And since she and Liam are planning a long engagement, anything can happen before the wedding.
Some of the media were SHOCKED by the news that Miss Cyrus is engaged to Liam Hemsworth. We’re not surprised by the wedding plans–it happens all the time for 19-year-olds in Hollywood and in real life. At least she’s not one of the Teen Moms(yet! Miley’s mom has already lashed out against one mag’s rumor that her daughter has a baby on board.)
As usual, we’re more interested in her hair than the gossip or bad fortunes being told. Almost two years ago–when Miley was making headlines for going from child star to pole dancer–we wrote about how her “style” was going straight from PG to R. That post is still getting lots of views even though Ms. Cyrus seems to settling down with one Mr. Hemsworth. It’s fun to look at the couple at three events pre-engagement. While the handsome Hunger Gamesstar seems to be in the same suit and the same pose, Miley’s look changes in every photo. Her hairstyles range from wild to mild to classic, and the fashions vary, too. At least two things about her hair stay the same–the ombré hair color and medium length.
All in all, Miley’s hairstyles have come a long way since she set sail from Disney. It took a while, but she finally let go of the long hair that worked for Hannah and then was transformed into the sexed-up look of a girl trying to grow up overnight. (For the background story, go to the same link mentioned above.)
But Miley’s hair isn’t perfect by any means. We weren’t impressed by the pouffed ‘do below. Actually it didn’t look too bad in the photo on the left, but the full-figure pose demonstrates our opinion that it’s a tired, old-lady style. Of course, no one noticed her hair at the Billboard Music Awardsbecause everyone’s eyes were transfixed on her oversized blazer that barely cover her emaciated body.
Anyone who knows realhairstyles.netknows this isn’t all we have to say about Miley. We already have a post in the works showing her style transformation from girl to young woman.
