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

this is just sadd. many girls loved him for his signiture hair. The flipp was the best part. Myy older sister is devestated. i dont believe he will be as popular as he was before. Although it is good to have change and grow but swish was a girl grabber. (:

Wow. You people are psyco. You’re jealous of a sixteen year old boy. He’s better than you and he is way younger than you. Get over it.

I like the biebs new hair. He looks older now. I mean he was aways cute but now hes hotter. The cut brings out his eyes and works well with his bone structure. It also looks great with his smile (I love his smile.) And any Bieleber who no longer likes him because he cut his hair isn’t a real bieber lover. Before the cut there was times when his face looked baby boyish. Now it looks all man and I preferably love it. but no one has the same opinion. :) Love ya Bieber boy :-)
