If the saying “the higher the hair, the closer to god” is true, Miley Cyrus may have just earned her wings on the red carpet at the 66th annual Grammy Awards.
The singer embodied her godmother Dolly Parton’s famous phrase when she strolled onto the red carpet on Sunday wearing a gold metal mesh dress with safety pin accents that left little to the imagination along with matching metal panties and Christian Louboutin for Maison Margiela gold heels.
But it wasn’t what Miley wore or didn’t wear that garnered most of the night’s attention. Her hair that was teased for the gods divided the internet, with many wondering if the look was a hit or a ‘mess,’ err miss.
“What’s going on with Miley Cyrus’ hair?’ one asked, while another quipped that the “Flowers” singer was “single-handedly” trying to “bring back big 80s hair.”
“I’m sorry but Miley Cyrus looks a mess,” another added slamming the look,” while another joked, “Miley Cyrus got electrocuted apparently.”
Yet another person wrote, “SHE GOT THE DOLLY MEETS ELVIS HAIR.”
“Miley’s custom margiela moment is so good and the hair definitely feels like a callback to dolly parton,” read a tweet.
The look was created by hairstylist Bob Recine, who used Nexxus products to achieve the curled voluminous look.
“This last year l featured Miley’s wet look for hair,” he said in a press release of the look. “For the Grammys, we decided we wanted something dry and bigger, more fuller hair, but sexy and tousled and touchable.”
Cyrus is nominated tonight for six Grammy Awards at the 2024 ceremony, including album of the year for “Endless Summer Vacation” and song and record of the year for “Flowers.”

Back in November when the nominations were announced, Cyrus posted a message on X (formerly Twitter), thanking fans for their support. She also shouted out all the women dominating the category.
“Congratulations to all of this year’s Grammy nominees. Watching women rule the music industry makes me proud,” she wrote. “It’s fun to be nominated & exciting to win but having my music LOVED around the world is the real trophy.”
“To my Smilers — I celebrate YOU today. Your joy is my bliss,” she added. My team + all of my collaborators are irreplaceable & priceless pieces of this puzzle. I love you all. Thank you for making my Endless Summer Vacation so sweet.”
