The “Party in the U.S.A.” singer, 26, channeled her Disney alter ego with the hair transformation, dying her light brown hair back to the long blonde locks and blunt bangs she rocked for four seasons in her breakout role.
Her move came days after Cyrus celebrated Hannah Montana‘s 13th anniversary by posting a series of retro photos and memes.
“You know guys, it was so hard going back and forth that I decided that I’ll just be Hannah forever,” she joked on a video shared on her social media channels — referencing her character Miley Stewart, the brunette teenager who secretly moonlighted as a pop star when wearing a blonde wig.
“It’s all me,” Cyrus said on colorist Justin Anderson’s Instagram story after the transformation. “I can’t believe that’s my f—ing hair! My hair is so long, that’s no weave!”
Anderson, co-founder of dpHUE, was just one of the people behind Cyrus’ classic new look. Joining him and Cyrus at dpHUE House (his invite-only hair studio) was celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger.
