It looks like Miley Cyrus is shedding more than just her wholesome Hannah Montana image — now the starlet is shedding her long hair as well. After spending a marathon nine hours at Gemini 14 salon in Manhattan last week, the 17-year-old star was snapped Sunday at the 21st annual MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto with a whole new look. Gone were her youthful waist-length extensions, replaced by a mature to-the-collarbone length, as well as fresh highlights and lowlights. “She was going for a more mature look,” revealed Gemini 14 colorist Vickie Vidov, who has worked with Miley for the last year. “Her hair is shorter and the color was amped up—she has new brown and blonde shades mixed in,” she told PEOPLE. Gemini 14 hair extensions expert Kristina Barricelli, who spoke to PEOPLE at The Salon’s benefit Thursday for Reach Out and Read – a charity that supplies books to kids in need, added: “Miley is really maturing. She’s becoming more of a woman. She wants people to respect the artistry. She doesn’t want to hear negative talk. And she’s in the driver seat with her hair.” Tell us: What do you think of Miley’s new look? –Liz McNeil and Jeffrey Slonim

I don’t like it. It makes her look too old, like she rolled out of bed. I think she should’ve gotten it a little longer.

9 hours in the salon, wouldn’t that get a bit boring? What do they all do in there for that long?
I think the longest time I have been in the salon for foils is 3 hours.

I thought her long hair was extensions.

I think her new haircut looks better! It’s more difficult to deal with longer hair, so a shorter style can be easier to take care of. Either way, she looks great! She is growing up, there is no rush-so why put pressure on her? We all grow up at different rates, so cut her some slack. Miley-I support you no matter what-Love you!

Catey, I can agree with that. A shorter style is less work. Miley-you look great, and I love the new look! I support you no matter what you decide to do.

Hi HATE it!
Her long hair was so pretty!
She wants to look more edgy I get that but why go for say a 35 year old hair cut?
