The Many Hairstyles of Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus announced that she’s over her rebellious pixie haircut on E! Fashion Police last night. “I'm secretly tugging on it every night and taking Viviscal. I'm not going to lie,” she said, “But I'm going to rock it while I have it.”

Not even a year ago, Cyrus said that she’d never sport long hair again but her hair stylist, Chris McMillan, confirmed her change of heart: “We're growing it out. Up and over is the new direction. We're keeping it short on the sides and back until the top gets longer,” he says. “Very Madonna first album cover.”

Madonna’s hair on the cover of her eponymous album wasn’t much longer than Miley’s now, still a long way from the length Cyrus used to rock—but if her love of extensions tells us anything, it’s that she’s not afraid to cheat a little bit. We’re taking a look back at the evolution of Cyrus’ hair for clues about what’s to come.
