Miley Cyrus‘ “modern mullet” isn’t getting the attention the singer had hoped for when she debuted the new hairstyle on Monday night. Instead, her fans are attacking her hairstylist for chopping off her luscious locks and giving the superstar “the worst haircut” they’ve ever seen. Miley Cyrus, who’s remained silent since getting vocal surgery earlier this month, shared her new ‘do on Instagram, which she got just in time for Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday. Posing the blunt blonde cut, it’s clear Miley Cyrus was feeling her new look despite all the hate.
Sadly, fans weren’t happy with the “She Is Coming” singer’s transition and took the chop pretty hard by directing their anger over the look at the person who did the cutting, her hairstylist, Sally Hershberger. “This is the worst haircut I’ve ever laid my eyes on u call urself a hairstylist ?” stated one angry fan. They added that this haircut makes Miley Cyrus look like “she’s going through a meltdown again why can’t we ever win gonna go cry now bye! That was all.” Another stated, “Gross. WHHHHHHYYYYY??” Her hairstylist couldn’t just sit back and take it. Instead, she took to social media to address everyone’s concerns with a sassy clap back.
“@MileysGem first of all if you knew anything about hair, it’s the position she’s in that’s why it looks that way, it’s 100% even and she also had it straightened so it’s more severe, which I actually like,” Sally Hershberger replied. “That being said, chill out and know it’s a modern mullet, which is very cool but it’s something you probably aren’t even well-versed in sorry but not sorry ?.” If we’re being technical, Sally wasn’t even the person who did the initial chop. Miley Cyrus’ mom, Tish, took the scissors to the singer’s hair first. Sharing a video of the first major cut, Tish looked more than excited to be involved in her daughter’s transformation. “Giving @mileycyrus a little B-day haircut!! #staytuned #itsgood,” Tish teased the video.
Speaking out about her “modern mullet,” Miley Cyrus’ hairdresser told E! the new look was the singer’s idea. “Miley wanted to go more punk. She wanted something edgy,” Sally told the outlet. “We went with a modern mullet that she can wear sleek, but also wavy and messy.” Miley Cyrus’ new look comes just after the singer celebrated her 27th birthday with a silent party. She recently got vocal surgery and has been forced to stay silent during her recovery, per doctor’s orders. Despite rumors that Miley and her boyfriend, Cody Simpson, had broken up, he was seen sitting next to the star during her family filled birthday dinner. Before his girlfriend’s special day, Simpson seemingly addressed the split rumors on his social media by showcasing Miley Cyrus’ childhood photo was his phone background. The duo has only been dating since October but their relationship has been heating up lately. Cody Simpson is proving to be the ultimate nurse by first bringing his guitar to her bedside and now playing her silent party partner.
