Justin Bieber's Haircut: The Inside Scoop from His Hairstylist

Justin Bieber haircut

Justin Bieber revealed his newly cropped do earlier this week, inciting a national debate over the singer’s new look (admit, you miss the trademark hair swoosh just a little). To get to the root of the matter, PEOPLE chatted with his longtime hairstylist, Vanessa Price, to see what prompted the change. “He was ready,” she explains of the more mature style. “Cutting your hair is just part of the evolution and growing process for anyone, and I think he was just ready,” she says. But don’t think this was a snap decision. Price reveals, “We’ve been talking about it over the last 6 months or so — more or less, it’s definitely been in the works for awhile.” It is all a collaborative process between the pop mega-star and his trusted stylist. “Justin has always been clear about what he wants done,” Price explains. “That said, he trusts me to make the right judgment with it, we really orchestrate his hairstyle together. He knows what he wants and I know what will work best with his features and hair type.” Paying close attention to his bone structure and extra fine hair, Price employed a method called “fine point cut layering, which gives it a really texturized look.” The resulting style is choppier, but still retains the star coif’s trademark touchability. “It’s like silk,” she admits. “He has very, very soft hair; I hope it stays that way forever.” Tell us: Do you like Justin’s new haircut?Justine Harman; reporting by Kate Hallett

I’m sorry but he looks more like a girl now than he did before, maybe it’s just this photo.

Some of you people and your comments! OMG! Haven’t you heard the saying “if you can say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”? What if this was your son? How hurt would you be if you heard people saying that your son looked like a girl. Some people need to think before they talk. Think of other people’s feelings.

God Bless! Keep up the great work Justin!

I hate JUSTIN BIEBER because he is a bad person, he robbed two banks in the PAST 6 MONTHS.

Either you go for a dramatic change, shorter, edgier, or leave it as it was. This haircut makes him even more kid (even though I know he is, but still).
