Miley Cyrus has had her fair share of different hair colors, but while her hairstyle has changed somewhat frequently over just the last year or so, one thing has remained true: Her color has been some version of a platinum blonde and nearly black combo. Yesterday, however, the “Flowers” singer debuted a new look that, while still bold, appears to be a softer take on the high-contrast look.
In March, Cyrus’s hair had a top layer of platinum blonde over a layer of very dark brown with visible roots in a middle-parted, naturally wavy style. On April 23, she wore a similar style for her appearance at The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards, but her color had changed significantly.
Although the bottom layer of Cyrus’s hair is still dark, it’s a richer, ever-so-slightly lighter brown that’s no longer limited to just the underside. The asymmetrical look paints an almost Cruella-esque picture with mostly dark brown on one side of her middle part and mostly blonde on the other. And it’s no longer a solid platinum, but rather a mix of cool and slightly warmer blondes throughout.
It feels like a wonderfully irregular evolution of money pieces, the two-tone highlighting trend that sees a noticeably lighter color framing the face. And it’s apparently long overdue. Cyrus had said she wanted to go darker for New Year’s Eve, but that Dolly Parton talked her out of it.
Now that the change has been made, we’re not even sure what to call it. Controlled chaos? A beautiful mess? Most likely: the next big hair color trend.
