Jennifer Lawrence has gotten the style approval from the queen of short haircuts. After the actress debuted a short new 'do at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday, Apr. 20, her Hunger Games costar Liam Hemsworth's fiancee, Miley Cyrus, took to Twitter to pay her a compliment.

"I love JLAW's new hair cut," Cyrus, 20, tweeted with a heart emoticon on Apr. 22. "Short hair, don't care." In August 2012, the former Hannah Montana star famous cut her long locks into a pixie cut, and has since said she'll never have long hair again.

As for whether or not Lawrence, 22, loves her new 'do, her hairstylist, Mark Townsend, told Fashionista that she was the one who begged him to cut it all off.

"We cut about eight inches off. It's a shag with tons of layers," he explained. "She has never cut her hair this short, it's always been long. She was so excited to do the cut. I was the nervous one! She kept saying, 'I think we should go shorter.'"

After going back and forth between being a redhead for X-Men, brunette for Hunger Games and blonde for American Hustle, Townsend said the actress' hair "did have quite a bit of damage."

But Townsend agrees with Cyrus: this new look really suits her! "I love this shag on her," the stylist gushed. "She can go straight for a super chic look or wavy for a fun, playful style and it's long enough that she can still wear it in a short ponytail or updo."
