Cute child star-turned-twerking sensation Miley Cyrus turns the big 21 this weekend. While the latest news is her bleached eyebrows (HUH?!), we thought it was a good time to chronicle the star’s ever-changing ‘dos.
Miley first made a name for herself back in 2006 as the star of Disney Channel’s hit series Hannah Montana. On the show, Miley’s character (quite appropriately) lived a double life, one as an average teenage girl name Miley Stewart and the other as pop-star, Hannah Montana.
Just how did Miley Stewart hide her celebrity? With a wig; brunette to blonde, and no one would be the wiser! However, as drastically different as her two characters’ hair was on the show, no one could have expected how Miley’s 20-something hairstyle would develop from that long-haired brunette we met back in the day!
Check out the evolution of this pop princess…
2007: Finding Her Stride
One year into her Hannah Montana career Cyrus added blonde streaks. A little color goes a long way! She had the perfect sun-kissed beach look (Bonus: It also made her look older).
2008: Testing the Waters
Famous or not, every girl has to try out a few colors before landing the right one. In 2008 Cyrus not only dyed her hair back to brunette, but she went even darker than her natural color. Then, a few months later, she went lighter than ever and added bangs.
What do you think? Which was a better look?
She had goregous long, flowing hair, and she embraced it! This was the year of curls and waves.
2010: Chopping It Off
No matter how much girls coveted her long hair, it was time for a change. In time for summer 2010, Cyrus had decided to chop it off! After the crop, her hair just barely skimmed her shoulders.
Cyrus was one of many stars in 2011 and 2012 who decided to try the Ombre look: Light hair on top gradually fading into dark on the bottom, or vice versa. This was sort of a chicken and egg style. Rather she lead or followed the trent, short hair or long (she had extensions), Cyrus worked it.
2013: Shock & Awe
Cyrus stunned everyone this year when she chopped off her hair and went from chestnut brown to bleach blonde. While the transformation took some getting used to, I think everyone would agree that she looks great no matter how she styles her hair.
Since Miley Cyrus cut off her hair, Jennifer Lawrence has also dared to go short. Who will be next? We’ll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime, send us your predictions!
