Newly engaged Miley Cyrus is experimenting with her hair lately, maybe in an effort to shed her teenage pop star persona. And there is no doubt about it; Miley certainly looks different in other aspects as well. In addition to a dramatic weight loss and possibly a new set of veneers, Cyrus has changed her fashion sense and chopped off her long golden waves into a more sophisticated bob. So what do you think of her image overhaul, and more specifically, her new â€˜do?
Her new cut instantly adds some class and sophistication, and suits her oval face shape well. Mileyâ€™s large eyes and bright white smile take center stage instead of her hair now, which is no bad thing. Miley has retained her waves but accentuated the volume in her hair by adding teasing to the roots to create a Sixties bouffant vibe. The hair color has remained the sameâ€”a warm brown base with golden highlights- which was a good move by Miley because she has the perfect color for her skin tone.
This medium length hairdo is blow-waved from root to tip to add plenty of body and height at the roots making it great hairstyle to compliment a round face. The ends are flicked out to give the over-all 'do texture and shape and completes the over-all style magnificently.
We have yet to see Cyrus wear her new bob in a sleek, straight style, which would look super chic, especially with her new wardrobe.
What is your verdict on Mileyâ€™s hair? Do you prefer it long with loose waves, or her new voluminous bob?

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.
2. Use a Large Radial Brush
A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3. Use a Blow-dryer to Kick Out the Back
Starting at the nape/back of the hair, place your brush on top of the section and blow-dryer down starting from the roots and using tension as you go. Next, place the blow-dryer underneath the hair and continue to blow-dry the ends out. Make sure to follow the brush with the blow-dryer in an outwards direction. If you like fuller flicks, hold the ends out and roll them up into the brush and apply the heat for longer.
4. Blow-dry the Back Under
To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.
7. Piece the Ends Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
