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

Wow. She looks really pretty with this haircut. But seriously, I would hate it if people comment on my hair each time I got I cut.

looks great! miley is growing into a beautiful
woman! i know alot of people want her to stay as
she was, but we all growup sometime and this is her
time! she has a huge career ahead of her, bigger than she probably ever dreamed possible and the fans
will be with her! those who don’t approve will find
someone else to attach themselves to! life goes on!
so many more important things to deal with than
miley’s hair!!!

Everynow and then your hair needs a break from extentions. Her hair was probably just a little longer than this, but because of all the damage, had to be cut into a style. I think this one looks much better on her anyway.

i thinks she looks nice and the cut looks really cute on her and i agree with the rest of the people that this hair cut really isnt that dramatic then people really thinks it is, but i really did like her hair long too it was pretty long but like evry1 said its nice to have something new.
