Miley Cyrus may be a newly-minted fiancée, but she isn't letting her impending wedding to Hunger Games stud Liam Hemsworth cramp her controversial style. The 19-year-old singer/actress shocked fans on Sunday with a new haircut that's half-shag, half-shaved and all swagger.
She posted a series of cryptic tweets leading up to the big chop, including, "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. My hair is attached to my head, no one else's, and it's going bye bye :)". Chris McMillan, Jennifer Aniston's longtime stylist and creator of the "Rachel" craze back in the '90s, also documented the process.
Miley foreshadowed the cut back in 2008 during a Good Morning America interview. While backstage in her dressing room, she pointed to a framed photo of Twiggy. "One day, I know I'm going to cut my hair like that, I know I am. One day," she said.
Cyrus bucked the traditional, age-old rule that you shouldn't do anything drastic to your hair before the wedding. But she may not be rocking the punk-chic look down the aisle just yet—in the September issue of Marie Claire, the starlet reveals she and Hemsworth want a long engagement. Over time, "she's gotten a little more comfortable with my style," which as of late, also includes cropped tops that showcase her dedicated Pilates regimen.
