Miley: Shorter, Blonder--Way Blonder

Jessica Galliart | August 6, 2012 | 9:30 PM

When we heard Miley Cyrus made a big move over to the blonder side this week, we considered making a lighthearted “Hannah Montana” joke--her celebrity alter-ego on the TV show wore bright blonde hair pieces. But when you check out Miley’s new, real-life platinum blonde crop, you might agree with us: It looks fierce!

Miley: Shorter, Blonder--Way Blonder  

The 19-year-old star just debuted a much blonder, shorter look via a series of tweets from the chair--in her own house. Famed stylist Chris McMillan, responsible for creating the “Rachel” haircut for Jennifer Aniston, made a rare house call to Miley’s abode to brighten and shorten her honey-highlighted locks, which have gotten progressively shorter and lighter over the past year.

Her ‘do may be significantly shorter, but Miley assured her fans--and the hilarious parody Twitter @mileysbun--that she could still pull her locks up into her signature high bun.

Besides Aniston, McMillan has styled for celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway and others. Fun fact: Miley’s former stylist, George, has worked for McMillan in the past at the Chris McMillan Salon.

Marianne Lohr (@mannie_mak), a freelance artist based in Bethlehem,PA., says "My new client came in to see me because she was never happy with her blonde and how gold/yellow it was.
