Miley Cyrus has a hot new haircut, just in time for the holidays!

After debuting a "Hannah Montana"-inspired look last spring, the singer just traded in her long locks for a short, edgy style.

The 27-year-old turned to celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger to create her new "modern mullet," a hairstyle the hair guru said the singer has been craving for a while.

“Miley wanted to go more punk, she wanted something edgy. We went with a modern mullet that she can wear sleek, but also wavy and messy,” Hershberger told TODAY Style.

To create the cut, Hershberger started by using a pair of scissors, then grabbed a razor to add a touch of definition. “We all loved the cut — it was just the right vibe,” she said.

Her modern mullet caps the latest in mane moves for Cyrus, whose mother Tish lent a hand by giving her daughter a quick trim earlier in the week.

The "Slide Away" singer sure does love to switch up her strands, so we wouldn't be surprised if she debuts a new look again soon. In the meantime, this punk-inspired do is giving us some major hair-spiration for the holidays!
