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 think it looks so much better-his other style was OK for then but now he looks more his age- Listen guys, he is only 16 and I am sure he will change his looks again-

Jusitn looks absolutely horrible. He looked ridicoulous last time but this is worse. He is the worst pop star ever he sings like a girl. I heard he got arrested and that he can’t sing some of his songs because he voice has gotten lower. I really wish he would’ve waited a while to become one. He is super young and is just a teenager. He shouldn’t be singing love songs yet. Some little kids listen to him and they shouldn’t be listeing to that stuff.

Wow. Bieber’s hair is so important it requires an entire article about the evolution of what is simply a trim? Seriously?!

I dont really see why people care about his hair SO much. I mean yeah okay so we all liked his hair before. And it was one of the reasons that made justin hot. But come on people it’s not your hair no is it? So who cares. If ya ask me Justins hair is still pretty dang hot! The messy short look is pretty much in. So.. get over it and just like justin for who he is and NOT his hair.
