When Miley Cyrus hacked off her hair in Aug. 2012, it was the chop heard round the world. After years of long, lush locks, worn in a variety of shades, textures and lengths, the singer/actress decided she had enough and went punk pixie short. Cyrus bleached it blonde and went as close cropped as you could get. So far, she hasn't stopped cutting.

As the weeks went by, Miss Miley went blonder and shorter, and has gone on record to say that she will never, like, ever get back together with long hair.

In honor of Miley embracing the shorter side of life, we were inspired to look back at some of her best hairstyles over the year. She's always been well-coiffed, and whether her strands are long or short, curly or straight, blonde or brown, textured or two-toned, she always keeps us guessing.
