Miley Cyrus actually enlisted the help of her mom, Tish Cyrus, to master the mullet. According to Vogue, the mother-daughter duo video-chatted with professional stylist Sally Hershberger to strategize before snipping. According to Yahoo!, Herscheberger was the creative force behind actress Meg Ryan’s signature shaggy look — the “Sally Shag,“ so perhaps this could down in Hollywood history as the “Miley Mullet.”
Miley’s mop is a shorter take on a classic. The cut frames her face and features a more jagged, almost animated-looking style. “Miley wanted to go more punk. She wanted something edgy,” Herschberger told E! News. “We went with a modern mullet that she can wear sleek, but also wavy and messy.” In other words, the pixie mullet is optimized for quarantine, so much so that Cyrus doesn’t seem too intent on washing it.
“In the past four months I think I’ve washed my hair twice,” she told Variety in June 2020.
Many of us have enlisted our moms to help us with quarantine cuts, but few are as stylish or daring as Miley’s mane! We can’t wait to see how she continues to evolve.
