Miley Cyrus has debuted an edgy “punk shag” hairstyle while teasing fans with promises of new music.

Back in December, the Wrecking Ball hitmaker revealed what her hairstylist Sally Hershberger called a “modern mullet”.

Now, Miley has gone even shorter with her new ‘do.

“New Hair. New Year. NEW MUSIC!” she captioned a trio of pictures on Instagram, which showed her wearing stonewash jeans, a lilac T-shirt, and black cowboy boots, complementing her bleach blonde hair.

And Sally, who was forced to defend the 27-year-old’s new look last month, told People that Miley wanted a low maintenance style.

“It’s a very fashion-forward look yet very no-fuss, both reflective of Miley’s personality,” the celebrity hair guru explained. “To get the edgy look, I point-cut her hair and then used a razor to slice it into a shag – it was a very organic process.”

She styled it by rough drying Miley’s hair, then used her 24K Vanity Hair Shaping Balm and 24K Golden Touch Nourishing Dry Oil to finish off the “piecy” look.

In response to the star’s new look, many of her friends and followers were quick to leave comments on her Instagram post.

“Do it, girl,” talkshow host Chelsea Handler wrote, while her brother Trace Cyrus joked: “Yooo cool mullet kid.”

Miley also made a drastic hairstyle change just before the release of her fourth studio album Bangerz in 2013. She stunned fans by cutting off her long brunette locks and debuted a short, platinum-blonde style.

Miley Cyrus has transformed her blonde locks into an edgy platinum mullet.

The Wrecking Ball hitmaker celebrated her 27th birthday on Saturday by getting a haircut from her mother Tish Cyrus, which Miley documented on Instagram. However, the cut wasn’t even, forcing Miley to turn to celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger to tweak her hair into a much slicker shoulder-length ‘do with layers, a fringe, and a lighter shade of blonde.

The 27-year-old shared the updated version of her haircut on Instagram Stories, with Sally also posting a snap of the cut on the photo-sharing site.

“PUNK VIBE” Sally captioned the post, complete with scissors, rock hands and black heart emojis.

She later told InStyle.com that she went with a “modern mullet” for the pop star.

“Miley wanted to go more punk, she wanted something edgy. We went with a modern mullet that she can wear sleek, but also wavy and messy,” Sally explained, adding that she created the added definition and texture to Miley’s hair with a razor.

However, the singer’s fans were left divided over the new ‘do, with one telling Sally that it was the “worst haircut I’ve ever laid my eyes on”.

The hairstylist fired back at her critics, explaining that the singer’s hair looks harsh in the Instagram picture because it had just been straightened.

“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,” she wrote.
