After she lopped off her locks Sunday, some of her fans weren’t feeling the new look, but Miley loves it.
She writes, “my dad @billyraycyrus used to tell me ‘opinions are are like a** holes every body has one’ LOVE my hair ? feel so happy, pretty, and free.”
And it sounds like it wasn’t an impulse decision to cut her hair. The pop singer and fiance to actor Liam Hemsworth tweeted on Aug. 6 that she was “ready for a change” and began a daily countdown leading up to Sunday. And fan Twitter account @FloydLilaZiggy notes that Miley mentioned wanting this hairstyle in an ABC News interview when she was 15.
Pointing to a picture of model Twiggy, sporting her signature pixie cut from the ’60s, Miley says in the interview, “One day I’m gonna cut my hair like that. I know I am. I know I will one day.”
Check out some vintage Miley in the video below (the hair cut comments are at the 7:35 mark).
