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 think that this look gives Miley a mature look and says that it is about time that she is growing up… She actually in my view is a great role model even though she has had a few bumps in the rode but she is a teenager and she is also human, well in fact she is under a microscope 24/7

I think this is a very cute haircut for her, she is trying to get away from the Hannah Montana role. She is just wanting to be herself now….Very Cute!!

I love it. She’s growing up.

LOL . . .wow real dramatic she took 6 inches off her hair. Dramatic is Rihanna’s hairdo. This is the Disney version of dramatic I guess. I liked her hair colour previous, this looks kinda greasy.
