It looks like Miley Cyrus is shedding more than just her wholesome Hannah Montana image — now the starlet is shedding her long hair as well. After spending a marathon nine hours at Gemini 14 salon in Manhattan last week, the 17-year-old star was snapped Sunday at the 21st annual MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto with a whole new look. Gone were her youthful waist-length extensions, replaced by a mature to-the-collarbone length, as well as fresh highlights and lowlights. “She was going for a more mature look,” revealed Gemini 14 colorist Vickie Vidov, who has worked with Miley for the last year. “Her hair is shorter and the color was amped up—she has new brown and blonde shades mixed in,” she told PEOPLE. Gemini 14 hair extensions expert Kristina Barricelli, who spoke to PEOPLE at The Salon’s benefit Thursday for Reach Out and Read – a charity that supplies books to kids in need, added: “Miley is really maturing. She’s becoming more of a woman. She wants people to respect the artistry. She doesn’t want to hear negative talk. And she’s in the driver seat with her hair.” Tell us: What do you think of Miley’s new look? –Liz McNeil and Jeffrey Slonim

I thought this ‘dramatic’ look was going to be a Rihanna cut or she was changing hair colors.
I think this looks good, but I prefer her with longer hair.
I want to see this length straightened.

Her hair looks great! The extensions were too much. But if she’s going for a more mature look she should take out the nose ring.

Miley looked beautiful in the Vanity Fair photo shoot-her hair was dark and no false eyelashes. She looked so natural. She should hire that vanity fair person to do her hair and makeup all the time.

In the current photo, she has on too much makeup and the hair has too much cotrast. Her hair is also clumped together.

I loved her long hair, but she remains beautiful in this new hairdo as well.

A “New Look?” Really? I can’t tell.
