Miley Cyrus recently enlisted her mother Tish Cyrus to cut her hair into a pixie mullet style.
The Wrecking Ball singer turned to hairstylist Sally Hershberger in January to have her locks chopped into an edgy, classic mullet, but when she decided she wanted to turn her look into a “pixie mullet” this week, she had to connect with Hershberger virtually, with her mother Tish following the stylist’s advice and carrying out the cuts.
In an interview with People, Hershberger explained that she made sure the mother-daughter duo had the right equipment before the session took place and demonstrated the moves on a wig over FaceTime.
“Instead of just telling them the step-by-step instructions, I physically do the cut with them. I find that actually demonstrating allows the client to get the best results… (We also) work gradually and take my time with small sections – less is more,” she said.
Although the finished look, which the singer has unveiled on Instagram, was completely different from the original inspiration photo Miley used, the 27-year-old was thrilled with the result.
“Miley loved the final look as much as I did! It’s so cool and daring to mesh together two styles into one that really expresses her own sense of style,” the stylist added. “We were both really happy with how the haircut turned out and I’m sure her mom will keep tweaking it a bit. Tish and Miley have a really good eye and were able to easily execute the vision.”
The pixie mullet isn’t the first time Hershberger has had a virtual haircut session with her client – she gave Miley a video call back in April to “walk her through fixing her bangs and giving herself a trim.”
