John Mayer’s New Goal: An Authentic ’80s Hair-Do
INF; Everett Collection
The first of the month brings new beginnings, new thoughts — and a new look for John Mayer, who took to his blog this morning. “Today I set off on my newest project,” writes the 30-year old musician, who made news this week after spending time in Miami with Jennifer Aniston. But his newest project isn’t romantic — it’s hairier than that. His goal: “To grow and maintain an authentic ’80s style feathered haircut,” he blogs, further insisting, “It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time.” He admits to being “very excited to bring this amazing look into today’s pop culture landscape,” noting, “The feathered cut projects an attitude of ease and quiet confidence that seems to have all but eluded our generation. And as my hair grows longer it will serve to become a more stirring and poignant statement.” For inspiration, he posts photos of ’80s hair icons Michael J. Fox, Shaun Cassidy and Kristy McNichol — whom Mayer dubs, “The goal personified.” Tell us: Do you like John’s new ’80s do?
