On Sunday, Miley Cyrus revealed her adorably edgy new pixie cut on Twitter.
It seems that while most of us were glued to our TVs on Sunday night watching Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss and other fashionistas strut their stuff at the Olympics closing ceremonies, Miley and her hairstylist Chris McMillan were up to a different kind of mischief, writes The Huff Post. And it involved scissors.
The drama started on Twitter, when the 19-year-old singer retweeted an Instagram that McMillan had posted.“Bye bun! Stay tuned!” he wrote, with a pic of the two of them, Miley’s famous blonde topknot perched precariously between McMillan’s hair shears.
“Tick tock tick tock,” Miley tweeted at one point.
“It’s happening,” she teased, along with a photo of hairstylist Chris McMillan just about to lop off her famous bun.
Three hours later, she tweeted the results: a choppy platinum pixie cut.
“Never felt more me in my whole life,” she wrote, posting a few shots of herself mugging for the mirror.
However, looks like the new haircut got snarky responses and Miley had to hit back at critics of her bold new hair cut.
“my dad @billyraycyrus used to tell me ‘opinions are are like ass holes every body has one’ LOVE my hair,” she added. “feel so happy, pretty, and free.”
Rapper Tyler the Creator was among the critics, tweeting, “Your barber is an a**hole.” He later deleted the comment.
The stark difference in styles seemed to have bemused a passer-by who didn’t recognise the teenager, with the Nashville-born star adding: “someone just told me im prettier than Miley Cyrus.”
The Daily Mail writes that continuing on her quest to morph into an emo kid, Miley complemented her hair with a heavy black sweater, silver barbed wire necklace and a pair of chunky boots.
She tweeted: “most successful Sally day EVER! I feel pretty ohhhh so pretty and gayyyy.. bliss :).”
Theactress and singer, who got engaged to The Hunger Games actor Hemsworth in June, was known for her trademark brunette hair before she showcased a slick razor cut bob last month.
Despite the change, Miley appeared unhappy with the style, frequently wearing it up in a bun – whether she was out and about or heading to one of her infamous Pilates sessions.
Meanwhile, Miley is to make a return to acting – to take up a guest role on Two and a Half Men.
The 19-year-old singer landed a supporting role on the CBS sitcom – and her character will be a world away from the role she had in her breakthrough Disney series Hannah Montana.
Miley is set to shake things up romantically when her ‘sexy’ character – a new girl in town – becomes the object of the male leads’ affection.
Both Angus T. Jones’ character Jake Harper and Ashton Kutcher’s Walden Schmidt will both fall for the starlet in a storyline “rife with comedy.”
