Miley Cyrus has gone through numerous changes in her appearance since her days on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana. She started off with a classic child star look, but as she matured, so did her style. In 2012, she shocked fans by chopping off her hair and dying what was left platinum blonde, explaining that she wanted to be an entertainer who showed up in her own way. Over the years, she continued to switch up her hairstyle, eventually growing it back out. Miley has said that her hair is a reflection of her sanity, sexuality, and sobriety, and that the public’s perception of her often depends on her hair. She blames this on Hannah Montana, where her character switched hairstyles to take on different personas. Nonetheless, Miley continues to embrace her ever-evolving look and identity.
