Miley Cyrus was a recent guest on Ellen's daytime talk show. During her visit she discussed her sassy platinum blonde crop which has been the topic of major buzz on Twitter and the Internet.

Miley joked with Ellen how their striking platinum blonde crop hairstyles are the same and how much they both look alike.

It's unlikely anyone would deny Miley's platinum blonde crop makes a dramatic style statement.

Initial Criticism Of Short Hair Cut

Although Miley initially received criticism for going to such a drastically short androgynous looking crop, she told Ellen how much she loves having super short hair. Especially after years of having long tresses.

When Miley first adopted the super short crop created by Chris McMillan (Jennifer Aniston's go-to hair guy) she tweeted out a message about her hair an hour before sharing photos from the salon chair.

She tweeted “If you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all.” She added “My hair is attached to my head no one else’s and it’s going bye bye.”

Celebrity Platinum Blonde Crop Hairstyle Trends

Miley, Ellen, Pink, Carey Mulligan, Ashlee Simpson and Michelle Williams are just a few of the celebrities currently showcasing super short, platinum blonde, cropped hairstyles.

Miley's platinum blonde crop continues to morph into different hairstyles. Her initial razor sharp haircut, which perfectly highlighted her bone structure, initially had shorter layers at the back. Longer pieces of hair framed her face at the front.

Since initially unveiling her edgy new hairstyle, Miley's cut has changed to incorporate {{asin=B0026IBSVE,text=buzzed sides and back}} sharped edges and the elimination of the long strands which had initially framed her face.

How To Cut - Miley Cyrus Platinum Blonde Crop

Miley's initial platinum blonde crop hairstyle can best be described as a graduated triangular haircut with a build-up of weight away from the head. The hair is cut shortest at the nape of the neck with the longest layers away from the face.

The hair cut's elevation is most likely 1-89° with medium tension and cut with a backward over direction.

Step By Step Cutting Instructions

A short platinum blonde crop haircut may work for most hair types and textures. It might not work as well for hair which is naturally textured unless the hair has been chemically relaxed or straightened. When hair is chemically relaxed and/or straightened it may not be compatible with bleaching.

For best results, to create a cropped haircut like Miley's platinum blonde cut, consult with a professional hairstylist. Ask them to evaluate your hair type and texture to determine if your hair is compatible with a cut like Miley's short crop.

If you decide to go with a short crop like Miley has, ask your professional hairstylist to cut your hair following the basic steps below:

1.  Before starting to cut separate hair into four standard segments based upon a natural part.

2.  Start cutting hair with a scissors at the back of the head.

3.  Use section-angle accuracy. Section hair using vertical-diagonal-forward sections.

4.  All of the sections should rotate from vertical-diagonal-forward sectioning to horizontal-diagonal-forward sections.

5.  Cut hair using a 45-degree elevation.

6.  Over direct hair back onto previously cut sections.

7.  Cut hair parallel to each section at the sides from the high occipital area to the top of each ear.

8.  Decrease section elevation at the ear and continue to over direct the hair back while continuing to cut.

9.  Finally, decrease elevations above the round of the head.

Cross Check Haircut Basic Shape

Be sure to cross check the basic shape of the haircut by using vertical-diagonal-forward sections. Use horizontal-diagonal-forward sections to cross check triangular sections of the cut. Always use the same section elevation used in creating the basic shape of the cropped haircut.

If you wish to use a razor, it should only be used on the edges or the accent pieces along the side of the face to create a wispy edge.

How To Color - Miley Cyrus Platinum Blonde Crop

One of the best haircuts for platinum blonde hair is a super short crop. Not only is it easier to keep up with root regrowth, the traditional damage the bleach causes to strands is minimized when hair is worn super short.

Although some people can go as white blonde as Miley, not everyone can. When in doubt visit a professional hair colorist who can safely take your natural hair color to the level of white blonde you desire.

In most cases a high lift bleach product will be required to achieve the desired platinum. If you're comfortable bleaching your hair at home one of the best kits is from Manic Panic {{asin=B002GENWU8,text=Flash Lightning Hair Bleach Kit 40 Volume}}.

How To Style - Miley Cyrus Platinum Blonde Crop

1.  Cleanse hair in lukewarm water with a hydrating, bleached hair nourishing formula. For dry or damaged hair consider using a Diluted Shampoo (DS), no poo or conditioner only (CO) formulation.

2.  Rinse well and apply a rinse-out conditioner which supports platinum blonde color.

Note:  It's important to keep a platinum hue bright without brassy tones.  Use color protective cleansing, conditioning  and styling formulas or products designed specifically for platinum hair.

3.  Finger pick hair to remove any tangles.

4.  Rinse conditioner completely from hair.

5.  Finish with a cool or cold water rinse.

6.  Towel blot.

7.  Apply leave-in styling conditioner which may include, but not limited to, a defrisant, leave-in conditioner and/or a heat protectant mousse, styling cream or gel. For extra root lift apply an appropriate product specifically to the roots.

8.  Flat wrap the hair by blow drying all of the hair forward and backward to remove 80 percent of the moisture.

9.  Finish the blow drying by drying hair in the same direction  used to create the basic shape.

10. For extra root lift use fingers to lift individual sections and blow dry hair from the ends to the roots.

11. Run a 1" or 1 1/2' flat iron through the fringe and longest layers to create a super sleek look.

Summary - Miley Cyrus Platinum Blonde Crop

A bold platinum blonde hue like Miley Cyrus rocks is irresistibly glamorous. The beautiful blonde color is showcased with a short crop.

Miley's platinum blonde cropped hairstyle might best be described as a graduated triangular haircut with a dramatic build-up of weight away from the head. The hair is cut shortest at the nape of the neck with the longest layers away from the face.

This type of haircut provides the option to wear hair in more than one way with tiny barrettes or clips by pulling the longer layers back towards the crown. For adding additional height and/or fullness lightly back brush.

Split ends are a separation of the hair shaft that exposes hair's fragile inner layers. The only real cure for split ends is to have them trimmed.
