Miley Cyrus proves that a haircut can change your image – and your life.
Since trading her long, wavy, Disney princess hair in for a short blonde haircut in 2012, the “We Can’t Stop” singer has worn her pixie in a variety of styles, from a punk Mohawk, to a blonde buzz-cut, to a surfer’s swoop.
In fact, Cyrus, 20, has even said that her short haircut changed her life – and revealed that the long, thick, wavy hair she was known for pre-pixie was all extensions.
Looking at an old photograph of herself, she said, “That’s my Nashville life, my simple life. That’s my simple life yet I have like 350 extensions in my hair.”
From 2007, when she rose to fame in “Hannah Montana,” until she cut her hair in 2012, Cyrus kept the same style: long, thick, wavy brunette tresses.
Getting that bleach-blonde pixie cut signaled that Cyrus was leaving her Disney image behind and forming her own identity – and she has said that the haircut changed her life.
“No one would have planned a haircut to change my life,” Cyrus told the Toronto Star.
“I didn’t plan a haircut to change my life. I just cut my hair and then it really changed my lfe. There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confiden.”
