Miley Cyrus unveils new short hairstyle to kick off the new decade

Miley Cyrus is kicking off the new decade with a short new hairstyle.

Now, as any fan of the 'Wrecking Ball' singer will know, she had long locks during her Disney days (no, I'm not just talking about the Hannah Montana wig), which she dramatically chopped during her rebellious 'We Can't Stop' phase.

In recent years, however, the actress turned singer has grown her hair to around shoulder length. But alas, it is no more.

Check out Miley revive her 'Hannah Montana' wig in the video below: 

As well as taking to Instagram to inform her 102 million followers that new music was on the way, Miley also debuted a new haircut on Monday. In the post, she wrote: "New Hair. New Year."

In the snap, where she is wearing a pair of blue denim jeans, black boots, an off-white top, and sunglasses, Cyrus's hair is noticeably shorter, but it's still a far cry from the pixie cut she sported during her 'Wrecking Ball' days.

Cyrus' celebrity friends were all over her new haircut in the comments section.

"So cute" said High School Musical actress Vanessa Hudgens.

And Trace Cyrus, Miley's brother, wrote: "Yooo cool mullet kid."

New boyfriend, new year, new haircut - it's all change for Miley:

Meanwhile, the general consensus from her fans was positive.

One wrote: "Love the Shag/ Mullet! Whatever you wanna call it."

But one fan simply questioned where Miley's hair had gone, writing: "Hair?"

Prior to getting the chop, Cyrus was last photographed with a shoulder-length haircut.

It is believed that Cyrus will release her seventh studio album in 2020. She has already released two singles likely to feature on it - 'Mother's Daughter' and 'Slide Away.'

Her new haircut comes after a tumultuous holiday season for the 27-year-old, who saw her and her beau, Cody Simpson, suffer a rocky patch after he was allegedly pictured kissing a Playmate - an accusation he has categorically denied.
