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

okay,her hair looks great! but on the other hand,am i the only one who noticed all the shading on her chest in this picture to make her look like she has more cleavage? i know shading is a great trick but holy cow! and it looks like she has her nose pierced in this pic…when did that happen?

This look is best for someone in their thirtees. It doesn’t go right with the shape of miley’s face, and it makes her look like she hasn’t showered in a month!

Dramatic? How?

Its ok. But she’s starting to look a lot older then she really is and it doesn’t seem so dramatic. Tones of people do this kind of style change when summer comes.

Cute, love the colors.

Nice look; however, how is it a “dramatic new” look, the hair is what, 6 inches shorter. Brittney knows how to get a dramatic new look.

Nine hours to look like she just rolled out of bed? I don’t get it. Too bad there’s nothing she can do about her horse teeth. Have some more hay Miley!! Hee hawwww!!
