That’s one way to get someone out of your hair!

After two years of forgoing haircuts, John Mayer debuted a new, shorter ‘do in Los Angeles on Saturday. He called on celebrity hairstylist Sally Hershberger for the new look.

“I was was thinking the night before that I wanted to cut his hair off, and when John came into the salon that is exactly what he wanted to do without me saying a word,” Hershberger tells

Mayer’s hair has seen many iterations in recent years, from long and curly and super sleek to ’80s inspired and totally buzzed.

This time around, the Grammy award-winning rocker — who has sported a similar style in the past — cut his hair days after he split from Katy Perry.

Could this have been a post-breakup chop? It’s not likely. “There isn’t any emotional baggage with them,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They may go out again, even, just as friends.” What do you think of Mayer’s new look? Vote in our poll below!

Becky on

I don’t think there is anything remotely attractive about him.

Stan Blue on

That was an instant facelift! And looks like he even took a shower!

Janie on

Short or long – it doesn’t matter. A haircut is not going to change the fact that he is a major D-bag.

Daria on

His hair looks better short but I don’t care for him personally anymore. Too many self-indulgent media scrums for my liking.

Emily on

I second Becky’s opinion…something very “off” about this guy.

Ivy on

What kind of question is that ? Defenitely yes !!

Kathy on

Who cares? I don’t like anything about him!

Denise on

I agree. I dont find anything attractive about him or his character.

Connie on

He is the perfect example of “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, because this beholder doesn’t see anything remotely attractive about him in any look. His eyes creep me out, he looks like he is always waiting for a score of something.

Joyce on

He has a ginormous head!
