One amongst the many other things I learnt from Miley Cyrus as an impressionable elementary school kid was to never underestimate the life-changing power of a hair transformation. Turn the browns into blonde, add some bangs and a regular teenage girl becomes a pop sensation!

 

From her iconic Hannah Montana locks to the shocking pixie cut and the present day mullet, Miley truly can’t be tamed when it comes to experimenting with her hair. On her 29th birthday today, we take a look at her hair evolution through the years:

2006

Miley was just 13 years old when Hannah Montana first aired on television in 2006. That same year she attended the 41st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards sporting pinned back brunette hair with soft curls.

2008

The 2008 Grammy Awards saw Miley posing for the paparazzi in tight curls and the darkest hair colour she’s had to date.

2009

Back to her signature Miley browns for the 2009 Hannah Montana movie, she was seen in straight layered hair with long side-swept bangs.

2010 

The singer-songwriter’s Can’t Be Tamed album phase was defined by long auburn-brown hair with messy beach waves.

Chop chop! Miley brought old Hollywood glam to the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar party with lighter hair and a gorgeous voluminous lob.

For Miley, 2013 was all about experimenting with her pixie cut. From playing around with proportions to trying out some crazy hairstyles, she did it all.

Let Miley show you how to grow out a pixie cut with style. Sporting side braids and red glitter in her hair, she turned heads at the 2015 amfAR gala.

Letting her free-spirit Malibu vibe shine through, Miley opted for natural wavy two-toned hair in 2017 that gave her the best of both worlds.
