The former Hannah Montana star had chopped off her long, medium brown locks in favour of a platinum blonde pixie style, shaved on one side of her head.
The 19-year-old, who recently revealed her engagement to Liam Hemsowrth, was clearly delighted with the style, declaring: "Never felt more me in my whole life."
Fitting with her new image, the teenager complemented her hair with a heavy black sweater, a silver barbed wire necklace and a pair of chunky boots.
