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

Hair …ok but WAY too much eye make up for a 17 year old girl. She needs to tone it down a little bit.

that is supposed to be a dramatic change?

Kat on

“Miley is really maturing. She’s becoming more of a woman.” And she wants to show the world just how MUCH of a woman in oh so many ways. Please.

Her hair looks good but, it looks like she just cut it off. There is no real style change (same waves) and the color is exactly the same. Nothing dramatic about it. 9 hours? I’d be livid if I had to sit in a salon for 9 hours to come out looking pretty much the same!

Lea on

That’s “dramatic?”

The hair is nice and age appropriate. I’m glad its nothing shocking…

S.E. on

A haircut is “respecting the artisty”? OK…but it does look good. Her old hair was looking a bit too Lindsay Lohan-ish.

Lauren on

it really took nine hours to do that?? It’s not so much of a dramatic change… I actually think it makes her look younger than her long hairdo :P It reminds me of the hair she wore on her first years as Hannah Montana!

Renee on

It wasnt a haircut…All she did was take out her extensions
