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 see nothing dramatic. I’m also getting tired of hearing about this girl maturing. Sorry, but maturity comes from behaviour and attitude not from hair, and Miley still has a long long way to go.

She looks so much better. The long extensions were just ratty looking.

Love it. And on a side note, I love the way Miley is handling all of this negative publicity. She seems very grounded and confident. She is only 17 years old, for goodness sake. I cannot even imagine how I would have felt if at that young age I had all of these strangers following my life and critiquing my choices. I had the luxury of making my mistakes in virtual obscurity.

Looks very cute… not sure what’s dramatic about it though.

Courtney on

I admit, it does look much better than the too-long extensions. But did it really take nine hours to take those things out and add some color?!

So “She doesn’t want to hear negative talk.”

Heres a hint: use phrases that are positive..

ex: “She does want to hear positive talk”..

Then again, if she phrased her wishes with a positive focus would she be defiant.. :-)

Tiff on

How is that dramatic? And 9 hours?

nester on

Hair real nice.
Eye make-up – deer in headlights.
Chest make – up. Why?

the style is great! much better than the fake long locks, the color is a little blond for her being so dark, but over all pretty.
