She just got her locks dyed a much lighter blonde hue last week.

And while Miley Cyrus is keeping them perennially pulled back in her now famous 'Miley bun', it appears that the bubbly actress is clearly enjoying the new look.

The 19-year-old Hannah Montana star was beaming as she took one of her prized pooches for a walk in Philadelphia today.

The singer and actress is back in the Pennsylvania state to be with her fiance Liam Hemsworth as he films his new movie Paranoid.

Once again the teen star displayed a snippet of her toned abs, this time in a sheer white T-shirt that also exposed her black bralette underneath.

Miley paired the look with some ripped jeans tightly belted around her tiny waist, boosted her height with some tan wedges and toted a large leather bag.

Balancing her iced coffee in one hand and the dog's lead in the other, she made her way back to her car.

Miley is back by Liam's side after going home to Los Angeles for a few days, in which during that time she got her new hairdo.

Last week Hollywood's 'Mane Man' Chris McMillan took his celebrity scissors to Miley, giving her her blonder, shorter look.

But despite her new cut and colour – for which she likely paid in the ballpark of $1,000 – the teenager was quick to gather her hair straight back into her stand-by style: a high bun.

Both Miley and McMillan tweeted photos of the hair cut and colour in progress, which appeared to take place at Miley's home.

'who says @ChrisMcMillan doesn't color' Miley tweeted over a photo of herself in the chair with her newly blonde hair.

'Oh yeah Chris himself 🙂 just for his favorite little angel.'

Miley's Twitter page reached seven million followers last week, and there is even a separate tongue-in-cheek Twitter account devoted to her hair called Miley's Bun.

Miley's Bun tweeted after the haircut: 'I think the most important thing a woman can have – next to talent, of course is her hairdresser, @ChrisMcMillan thanks duuuuude.'

McMillan has a salon in the heart of Beverly Hills, but it's not unusual for a stylist to the stars to make home visits to the likes of Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kirsten Dunst and Nicole Richie – all of whom have been McMillan's clients.

And while a haircut at his salon will generally cost about $200 to $350, with McMillan himself it's $600 – and that's before colour, which in McMillan's salon is usually done by a different person who specializes in the field.

For highlights, Hollywood's in-demand colourists start at around $300, which means a cut and colour like Miley's will cost at least $900 — before tips.

A thousand-dollar haircut is a drop in the ocean for the Hannah Montana starlet, whose net worth stood at around $54 million last year.

The actress and pop singer was back in Los Angeles after visiting her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, on the set of his new movie Paranoia in Philadelphia.

According to one recent report, the 22-year-old Australian was keen for Miley to go back to LA because she was proving to be 'too much of a distraction' while he was at work.

But now Miley is back in his arms on the East Coast and she certainly appears to be happy about it.

Miley and Liam met on the set of 2009’s The Last Song and have been inseparable ever since.

He popped the question on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from renowned jeweler Neil Lane.

In a recent interview with Marie Claire, Miley insisted that the couple are in no rush to walk down the aisle and instead wanted to make a commitment to one another.

She said: 'Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with.

'I don't really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we've made to each other. And we want to have a long engagement.'

Miley also said that she was thrilled with the engagement ring Liam picked out.

She explained: 'I had no input. We'd been kind of talking about [getting engaged], and I saw something like it online at one point and thought it was really pretty, but I usually wear rose gold. I just love that it's old and has a story. And I'm happy because it doesn't look like anything else I wear.'

Still, Miley insisted the proposal came as a 'complete surprise' to her, and also to her parents Billy Ray and Tish, who weren't aware of Liam's intention to ask for her hand in marriage.
