SHORT AND SHARP: Miley Cyrus with her shaved crop.

Miley Cyrus gets an "adrenaline rush" from cutting her hair.

The former Hannah Montana star recently underwent a drastic style overhaul, chopping off her long blonde locks and sporting a shaven crop in their place.

The 20-year-old admits making such a big change was a little daunting, despite receiving a positive response from her fiancé Liam Hemsworth.

GREAT LENGTHS: Miley Cyrus, before going for the chop.

"My fiancé has been actually the best. I was most nervous about him, only because you hear your whole life that women are supposed to have long, gorgeous hair," she told British magazine OK!

"But I think someone is sexier when I see their face. It takes a lot of courage to do it because when I see someone with short hair, I have respect for them. There's definitely an adrenaline rush when they are taking their scissors to your hair because it takes some time to grow back."

It doesn't look like Miley will be changing back to her old style anytime soon, as she recently cut off a further few inches of her tresses.

The singer-come-actress used to use fake hair to add length but now can't understand her desire to do so.

"I feel like I can be so much more casual [now]. I feel cleaner, more modern," she gushed.

"My hair was fake anyway so it wasn't as scary to cut it because I just had to unclip it. Now when I see an old photo, I wish someone would have told me that extensions were not cute when I had them. I hate them, and I look at them and I just feel the whole look is just not what is in right now anyway."
