Miley Cyrus Short Hair

What if Miley Cyrus never wanted short hair and all of her best-looking crop cuts over the years were started by accident?

Yes, I’m serious and I’ll tell you more about it below.

The pop singer has proved countless times that you don’t need long hair to party in the USA, although she did look beautiful back then.

So, what triggered her to cut it short?

1. It started at the 2011 MTV VMAs

Okay, I may be cheating a little bit here but this was the first time I got a glimpse of what Miley looks like with short-length hair. Quite frankly, I think she was surprised too by how gorgeous she looked in this tied-back updo.

Since this “accidental experiment” photo was taken, it was on!

2. Bye Bye, Hannah Montana

It could be age or other factors, but Miley was determined to ditch the Hannah Montana image by going with this undercut pixie look.

This boyish hairstyle was truly refreshing and I loved every inch of it!

3. It’s Messy and It’s Blonde

Whether the singer left her hairspray at home is completely irrelevant here because messy and blonde “do” mix.

4. Devil’s Daughter

If the Devil is real and he has big horns and a daughter, then she’ll probably look like Miley Cyrus. Just check out those mini horns on her head and the power it gave her in that famous “Tweaking” MTV performance. (you know which one)

Ok, they are just mini hair buns…wild, but nothing evil.

5. Spiky Hair Day

Miley Cyrus had a spiky hair day and it is crazy!

It is crazy, spiky, and definitely funky but is this the right hairstyle to take to a Met Gala event? Maybe it is.

6. Short and Tidy

I never thought I would say this but Miley actually looks like a businesswoman in this short swept-up look. The platinum blonde color with dark roots gave a clean, tidy, and professional vibe.

7. Signature Side-Swept Fringe

This is one of Miley’s signature short hairstyles where everything is swept to one side. I guess you can never go wrong with a beach blonde and fringe combo.

8. Cute Bob with Bangs

Doesn’t Miley look super cute in this short bob haircut with straight bangs?

Too bad it’s fake though.

Yes, it’s only a wig but I reckon it suited her.

9. Slicked Back Wet Look

If dying her armpit was impressive, Miley took it further by rocking this ice grey/blue wet look. There’s almost a cyber feel to this slicked back style and the sparkles just added more shine and wetness to it.

I wonder how much hair gel she used though.

10. Low Maintenance Chic Pixie

It’s sleek, stylish, and chic!

The high-layered bangs really bought out Miley’s heart face shape, while the pink lipstick and white eyeliner gave this light honey blonde pixie an even softer touch.

The fact that it’s low maintenance means the singer doesn’t need to use a lot of hair products. A little wax is usually enough.

12. Sing It Like Beckham

This hairstyle reminded me of David Beckham during his prime. So why did Miley choose this faux hawk haircut?

Personally, I think it is brave and edgy which, really, is what the pop star is about. If she can’t bend it like Beckham, at least she can sing it…and better too!

13. Short Mullet

Believe it or not – This short mullet was crafted by Miley’s mother, Tish, with a little help from a virtual hairdresser, Sally Hershberger.
