The Evolution of Miley Cyrus's Hair
From femme and flowy to utterly fierce, Miley Cyrus has gotten more news coverage about her hair than most celebs ever do. The reason why? Music historians will undoubtedly mark Miley Cyrus's drastic platinum pixie cut as the point where her career—and her self—took a turn for the outrageous. Where were you when Miley cut her hair?
So what brought about this severe coif change? Well, it wasn't a modern diva like P!nk who inspired the singer, but a far more classic icon: '60s model Twiggy. Cyrus told the Daily Telegraph, "About six years ago, we did an episode of Hannah Montana where they made my hair look like Twiggy, and every since that, I've wanted to do it. But it was just getting the guts to take a razor and know that your hair doesn't grow back overnight."
In fact, you can see in an old behind-the-scenes interview during her Hannah Montana days, Cyrus points to a photo of Twiggy saying excitedly, "One day I'm gonna cut my hair like that."
So how did she go from having long brown hair to short and platinum? Let's take a look at Miley Cyrus's hair evolution over the years.
Back in a more innocent time, when the name Hannah Montana was more popular that Miley alone, Cyrus had your typical Disney star hair: long and with just a bit of a curl. Cyrus did get to do some hair play with the various wigs her Hannah Montana character wore, but as for her own hair, she had to keep simple for her "normal" by-day character. The edgiest Cyrus's hair got at this point was when she grew it out to almost waist length!
