It's been a few months since Miley Cyrus first debuted her classic 2020 haircut: the mullet. The dramatic chop practically runs in her family since her dad, Billy Ray, made the look famous during his "Achy Breaky Heart" days. It's been a couple of decades since the mullet's heyday, but in the spirit of '90s nostalgia, more and more celebrities are sporting a "business in the front, party in the back" style — with a modern twist.
Cyrus first shared a glimpse of her shaggy cut on Instagram through a series of photos on Jan. 6, along with some hints at new music. Nine Zero One salon cofounder Riawna Capri previously dubbed this haircut a "chill mullet" or "the chillet" for its laid-back look. "It's a more modified and more fashion-forward version of the mullet," she explained. Basically, it's not quite as divisive as Billy Ray's original look. "This haircut is for someone who is confident, who steps outside the box, and whose style is on the edgier side," Capri continued. That sounds like an on-point definition for Cyrus, doesn't it?
