She took a wrecking ball to her preteen style, that's for sure! Miley Cyrus has had quite the transformation since she burst onto the scene as the blonde-wig-wearing Hannah Montana in 2006. Since then, the natural brunette has tried numerous hairstyles, including superlong extensions and a platinum pixie cut, always surprising Us with what she chooses next.

From Disney waves to a punk pixie, no hair look is too extreme for Miley. Like any seasoned beauty chameleon, the pop star has made a few missteps along that way (December 2015 was a dark time, okay?), but she bounced back. Here, a long walk down Miley-hair-history lane.

But probably our favourite Miley ‘do ever was 2011/2012 just prior to the peroxide pixie moment. Regularly seen going to pilates, Miley not only honed one of the best bod’s in town – but also one of the best topknots. This look was pulled out on the regular – and we liked it (read: copied it endlessly*). *The hair, not the body**.**Not through lack of trying.

Dramatic champagne highlights punctuated Miley Cyrus’s amber waves. “I am loving bold variation in tones right now,” colorist Jason Backe says. “A really striking ribbon of a creamy blond, next to a medium golden blond lowlight, running through a soft base is major.”

11. 2011 Dramatic champagne highlights punctuated Miley Cyrus’s amber waves. “I am loving bold variation in tones right now,” colorist Jason Backe says. “A really striking ribbon of a creamy blond, next to a medium golden blond lowlight, running through a soft base is major.”

Proving she was a dab hand at trying out the colour spectrum from an early age, Miley Cyrus stepped out with her famous Hannah Montana wig in 2007 and despite the clear flaws with this style, you will simply not find us hating on Hannah Montana. Like, ever.

She’s had more than a few new ‘dos in recent months, but we never thought we’d see the day when Miley sported a Dumber And Dumber style bowl cut. Pictured in LA in January, the pop princess was spotted rocking the infamous style while hanging out with friends. We’re not convinced this one will catch on but, hey, stranger things have happened.

Miley’s hair has seen some ups and downs in recent years, but this Billboard Music Awards look is an absolute winner. We love MC’s strong red lip, too.

But when she first made the dramatic decision to chop off her much-copied dip-dyed bob, we were all for it. Twerkin’ the look like a pro, the heady heights of Miley’s mahoosive red carpet quiff quickly became the stuff of legend.

At a Hollywood event, Miley went for the more is more approach (with her hair, most certainly not with her outfit; think tux jacket AND NOTHING ELSE) opting for a bouffant bob. There was something very 60s Bond girl about the whole thing, and it may have been this that cemented our love. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it happened.

AAAAAAAAWWW. Being a child star, Miley’s pretty much been famous her whole entire little life and so we now ere into the realm of baby pics – if you can count a 16-year-old going to the Oscars in 2008 as baby pictures. Points for being so glam at such a young age though, if this were us going to the Oscars when we were 16-years-old, we would not have held it together quite so well.

And yet, much as she may make over her look, Cyrus, 23, still can't resist her small-screen alter ego's signature flaxen tresses. On the 10-year anniversary of Hannah Montana's premiere this past March, the “Party in the U.S.A.” singer shared a snap of herself in a blonde wig above a text that read, “How insane. 10 years later still laying around in a blond wig.”

While Cyrus confessed that she feels “disconnected to who I was at the time” Hannah Montana was on the air, she also added that she would “always feel eternally grateful for the opportunity and the platform she was given.” And, it seems, she still loves the bright hue.

Cyrus said goodbye to her role on Hannah Montana-and her character’s infamous wig. “At first I was like, ‘I’m gonna burn it!'” she told People. “It itches so bad. But now I want to keep it, so if I’m, like, 30 and want to pretend I’m Hannah Montana again, I can.”

Cyrus had a very specific inspiration for her post-Oscars look: “I have just always loved pinup girls. I think it’s the most fabulous time,” she told InStyle. “And I’ve been wanting to do a pinup look, especially now that I have my hair short.”

Cyrus went even shorter the following year, keeping the sides cropped close and shearing the top into a more classic crop. To keep it current, she let her natural roots shine through.

For the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Cyrus stepped out of the box, styling her hair in two mini top knots. She finished off the look with a bold red lip.

19. 2016 This past year has been a slam dunk for Cyrus—she reignited the flame with fiancé Liam Hemsworth, scored a spot as a judge on The Voice, and let her famous platinum crop gain a few inches.

And then suddenly we move from the halcyon, misty-coloured water memories of Miss Cyrus’ locks to an all-together darker time – although of course, on reflection, not as bleak as the hair era we’re living in now. Actually no, this platinum blonde equine ponytail is definitely worse.
