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

Shut up Deanna. Just because people hate someone doesn’t mean they’re jealous. You couldn’t pay me a trillion dollars to be this kid for one day. I hate him and no honey, it’s not jealously. I like knowing that my friends like me for me and not because I’m some famous idiot.

That said, his hair does look better.

Diana on

I think he looks more like a baby with the short hair…. with his hair cut it brings out his feminine features way more than the long hair!! Should have kept it long and I am NOT a Bieber fan!
