Miley Cyrus has a brand new 'do -- and it's causing quite a stir among her fans.
The 27-year-old singer took to her Instagram Story on Tuesday to show off her fresh cut, which her hairstylist, Sally Hershberger, is describing as a "modern mullet."
The "business in the front, party in the back" hairstyle that her dad, Billy Ray, rocked at the height of his career looks a bit different on the pop star. Nearly platinum blonde locks line Cyrus' face in the pic, with straight, fine strands creating a blunt cut. While some fans love the style, others were disappointed, calling out Hershberger for the cut (though it was Cyrus' mom, Tish, who started snipping on Saturday).
"This is the worst haircut I’ve ever laid my eyes on u call urself a hairstylist ? now this is gonna be all over TMZ and the news plus the locals that don’t like Miley are gonna think she’s going through a meltdown again why can’t we ever win gonna go cry now bye! That was all," one fan wrote, calling out Hershberger.
"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 percent even and she also had it straightened so it’s more severe, which I actually like," Hershberger wrote back. "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 ?."
A source told ET earlier this month that following her hospitalization for tonsillitis in October, the "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer was made aware of another issue with her vocal cords. Cyrus was advised to have surgery before the year came to a close.
Surgery is now behind Cyrus and she is out of the hospital, the source said, but her recovery will take several weeks and she will have to keep quiet during this time. Obviously, new music is on hold until she is better, the source added.
