From Pop Teen to Tongue-Wagging Queen: Miley Cyrus's Beauty Evolution

Nov 23 2014 - 6:00am

Miley Cyrus [1] has been causing quite a stir for the last few years, from the bleached-eyebrow stunt [2] to her NSFW music video [3]. All this drama makes us think back to her more innocent days as Hannah Montana. That's right: before she put twerking on the dance move map, she was working her Southern twang as a country star on the Disney Channel. Back then, she wore bubblegum-pink lip gloss and extralong locks. Now, Miley's style is more edgy than innocent. From a curly haired girl to a smoky-eyed teenager to an envelope-pushing young lady, celebrate Miley's 22nd birthday with a look at how she morphed into the grill-loving, bum-shaking woman we know now.

2006

Dear sweet Miley Cyrus [4] arrived wide-eyed and bouncy-curled in 2006 as a Disney Channel darling. Her show, Hannah Montana, featured her famous country star dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, and the plot focused on her vocal skills.

2008

A little more grown-up, a 16-year-old Miley experimented with blunt bangs for a time and began her love affair with black eyeliner.

2010

At the 2010 Grammy Awards, Miley went for a totally different look that featured wavy chestnut hair that was more rock star than country.

2011

Miley was back to her sweet yet sultry style in 2011 when she sported this trendy ombré hair color and pink makeup palette.

2012

With her voluminous curls, smoky eye makeup, and plunging neckline, Miley seemed to be sending a message at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards: "So long, Hannah Montana!"

2012

Jennifer Aniston [5]'s go-to hairstylist, Chris McMillan, was responsible for Miley's drastic hair change in Fall 2012. She went from a blossoming brunette to a provocative platinum blonde overnight.

2013

Miley went even shorter with her hair in early 2013, spiking her white-blond tips straight up against her darker base.

2013

At the 2013 Met Gala, her hair stood straight up to fit into the punk theme.

2013

This Summer, Miley showed off her signature cherry-red lip color — and an edgy new grill.

2013

With her hair a little grown out, Miley was spotted sporting double topknots at the 2013 MTV VMAs. Incidentally, the style is quite conducive to twerking because you don't have to worry about getting hair in your face!

2013

Miley toned her beauty look down at the 30th annual Night of Stars event wearing a seafoam eye shadow and sequined dress, transforming her shaved sides into a very ladylike look indeed.

2013

This vampy lipstick and heavy eyeliner worked perfectly with Miley's slicked-back hairstyle. This appearance was the last time the singer was seen before bleaching her eyebrows [6].

2014

Miley was back to a platinum pixie for a pre-Grammy Awards performance in 2014. She also traded her dark makeup palette for soft pinks.

2014

Miley is keeping up her short crop and bright hair color for her Bangerz tour.

2014

For the MTV Video Music Awards, Miley brushed the long bangs of her cropped coif forward, creating a seductive and edgy look.

2014

Backstage at the Spring 2015 Jeremy Scott [7] show, Miley had her short, platinum strands slicked back in a boyish style accented with a kitschy hair accessory. She finished off the look with slashes of white eyeliner.

2014

At the amfAR Inspiration Gala, Miley's textured golden locks and graphic cat eye were as edgy as her sheer ensemble.
