Miley Cyrus is bringing back the mullet for 2020 and we’re into it

The 27-year-old singer is putting a new spin on the ‘shag’ and taking cues from her dad.

Sure, a new year means a new haircut and Miley Cyrus is leading the celeb-hair-trend charge with her take on the modern mullet. Or her take on her dad’s famous hairstyle from the 90’s that he lovingly dubbed his ‘Kentucky Waterfall.’ *Google’s Billy Ray circa 1990’s.*

The woman responsible for Miley’s new hair transformation is hairstylist Sally Herschberger, she told Refinery29, “it’s a very fashion-forward, yet no-fuss look.” Which does makes sense – a shoulder-grazing crop is super easy to wear and style and her fringe is at a length that can evolve into curtain bangs or be pinned back.

Plus the grown-out roots make for a super stylish way to skip your colour appointment if the holiday period got the best of your wallet.

When the singer was in the chair Herschberger focused on the texture of the cut, explaining; “I used a razor to slice [the hair] into a shag. To style it, we did a rough dry and then I used a shaping balm and dry oil to finish off the piecey look.”

Want to try the chop for yourself? We asked Sydney-based celebrity hairstylist and owner of RAW Salon Anthony Nader for his thoughts and he had some wise words of wisdom for us before we think about taking the leap. “This isn’t for everyone,” he says. “I’ve been hairdressing for 30 years so, and I’ve seen quite a few different versions and shapes of this iconic cut. You have to own this look and be confident.”

The next big thing to take into consideration is your face shape. “The most perfect face shape for this cut is oval as the symmetry is perfectly proportioned,” explains Anthony. “If you have a square jawline this won’t do you any favours because your face won’t appear delicate and soft due to the trimmed back hair above the ears. Softer and more curved face shapes will be in your favour compared to angular facial features.”

Business in the front, party in the back, forever.
