You know what they say: new year, new ’do! And Miley Cyrus is taking that super seriously. On January 6, the singer took to Instagram to show off much shorter locks in a series of three Instagram posts sharing the hairstyle change while teasing forthcoming new music.
“New Hair. New Year. NEW MUSIC!,” the “Mother’s Daughter” singer captioned the posts.
The shaggy cut is a shorter-version of the very popular (but controversial) mullet Cyrus debuted in November 2019, and if the number of posts gracing Cyrus’s feed are anything to go off of, she’s defs feeling her new look.

Not only is Cyrus’s new hairdo a nod to her dad’s famous mullet, it also reminds us (and a ton of fans in the comments) of another badass female rockstar, singer Joan Jett. Musician @thisiswatt commented “Cherry Bomb” on one of the posts, referencing the title of one of Jett’s most famous songs. Model @willam had a similar idea, commenting “Runaways vibes. Happy 2020!” on the same post (a reference to Jett’s 1970s-era band, The Runaways).
Does this new look mean we can expect a more of a rocker vibe from Cyrus’s 2020 music?
