Rihanna and Miley show off short strands

It's attack of the short hairstyles on the 2012 MTV VMAs red carpet. Who wears short hair better, Rihanna or Miley Cyrus?

Rihanna and Miley show off short strands

We were finally just getting used to Miley Cyrus' short hair when Rihanna showed up on the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet sans her variety of hair extensions. The Barbados-born singer looked fresh and simple in her simply while gown and simple brown strands.

Cyrus, on the other hand, decided to go two-toned with her cleavage-baring dress and bleach blonde strands. She looks a lot like Pink, don't you think?

As for Rihanna, we fully expect to see her in a different hairstyle come next week. Her hairstylist, Ursula Stephen, said Rihanna's hair preferences change from day to day.

"We are always changing it up, experimenting, and having fun with hair. That's what I love to do! Her hairstyle typically changes depending on what's on our agenda, what she's wearing, or how she's feeling," Stephen told BellaSugar last year.

"We take it day by day and event by event, and usually will both bring ideas to the table. It's always a collaboration, which is such a great way to work. It's all about the products that we use to maintain moisture in between all the styling. If we're going heavy with color, we'll lay off the chemical treatments; if her hair needs a break, we'll try a wig or weave. It's all about knowing and understanding the client's hair and reacting to it as you go along."

We're going to give RiRi our pick for best short hairstyle of the night (so far).
