Last night Twitter went berserk as Miley Cyrus took to the medium to show the power of transformation. “Tick-tock,” she teased, while sharing a picture of locks ready to be chopped. Presently, the inevitable happened. The 19-year old siren posted a picture of her new platinum blonde pixie undercut. No longer flush with the traditional features of feminine beauty, this is a dramatic change for Miley. They’ll be many critics of the cut, but like Emma Watson, Michelle Williams, and other leading celebs, this is a great way for her to radially change her image. The crop gives her a punk-inspired edginess that we’ve never seen on her before, while the long top with shortness underneath means she has a lot of freedom to play with shape, style, and texture. She can create a side-sweeping bang, slick it all back, or go for a disheveled ‘undone’ look.
