We're not afraid to admit it: We were taken aback when Miley Cyrus showed up at the 2013 MTV VMAs with her shortly shorn hair in ... pigtails? After seeing Katy Perry rock the 'do at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, we're wondering if this style is about to be a major trend. Whose pulls off pigtails the best?

Miley is never one to shirk away from a bold sartorial look. Her ensemble for the VMAs red carpet was relatively covered up (especially considering the nude latex number she donned for her performance), but the pigtails were even more unexpected! The baby top knots were an interesting contrast to the buzzed sides of Miley's head.

Katy also sported the trend for her performance. We've seen the 'Roar' singer try just about every style with her hair (including wearing a blue wig), but this is definitely a new one. While the 'do definitely recalls comparisons to Princess Leia, we think Katy can make it work!

It's a daring style -- who do you think wears it better? Vote for Miley or Katy in the poll below!
