Miley's New Hair Makes A Point

UPDATE: Sigh. Upon further investigation, we have determined that it's gotta be a wig. Her hair is still too short to be arranged like that. On the bright side, you can look forward to seeing plenty more of her pixie back in action very soon!
In the ontology of Miley Cyrus, hair changes are an important indicator of things to come. After all, 'twas a Twit pic that started it all, marking the official moment that she truly went from Hannah Montana to the star we know today.
Her pixie was one of many that flooded the beauty-news circuit in the last year, and now, she's trying out another buzzy style: the bob. Cyrus debuted a new iteration of her short-ish 'do at an event in Los Angeles last night, paired with red lipstick and what appear to be freshly chopped baby bangs. It's hard to say how much of this look is a permanent change and how much is due to clever styling — for further confirmation, we'll just have to wait and see.
Whether or not you're a fan of her new look, it's worth noting that this is proof of just how versatile short hair can be. With the right product and a couple bobby pins, Miley can easily switch from a bob to a shaggy semi-bowl-cut to a slicked-back look overnight. So, for those of you who are afraid to take the plunge into short hair, might we recommend finding inspiration in Miley's book? Not a common suggestion these days, but in this case, the basic shape of her cut could serve as a useful reference for long-haired ladies on the fence.
