Waiting on John Mayer’s haircut to change

John Mayer is sporting a new haircut these days, apparently satisfied with fulfilling his dream of an “authentic ’80s haircut”. From a May 1, 2008 post on his blog:

Today I set off on my newest project; to grow and maintain an authentic ’80s style feathered haircut. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time and I’m very excited to bring this amazing look into today’s pop culture landscape. The feathered cut projects an attitude of ease and quiet confidence that seems to have all but eluded our generation.

This is a work in progress, and as my hair grows longer it will serve to become a more stirring and poignant statement.

And now it seems he’s shaved his head, buzz cut style. Some people say he looks like Jim Carrey. Oh… If you care to write a haiku about his hair, People magazine has the challenge.

Remember when he grew his hair out awhile ago? Eesh.

Love or hate his music, John Mayer can be a pretty amusing dude. He posts ridiculous videos on the internet, performs stand-up routines at comedy clubs, and generally has a good time with his media image. But I think one of the more memorable videos for me was from 2004’s John Mayer Has a TV Show which ran on VH1. It features an anonymous John Mayer in a bear suit interviewing his unsuspecting fans in a parking lot.
