Hair today, gone tomorrow!
On Saturday, John Mayer
joined Mindy Kaling
to celebrate her new show, The Mindy Project
, at the SkyBar at the Mondrian Los Angeles.
Just days after splitting from Katy Perry
, the Grammy winner debuted a new hairstyle. Mayer, 34, who had been sporting long, shoulder-length locks, traded his unruly hair for a shorter, neater look.
Mayer got the cut on Friday afternoon at the Sally Hershberger salon in L.A. by Sally herself. Right after he got the new do, Mayer – sporting a red T-shirt – headed off in his Range Rover, and took a moment to check out his new look in his side-view mirror, according to an observer.
The singer-songwriter – who has long accessorized his mane with floppy hats
– grew out his hair
during his two-year hiatus
from the spotlight.
During the event Saturday, Mayer mingled with Kaling's The Office
costars, including B.J. Novak.
Despite the recent split, Mayer's social life hasn't suffered. On Thursday, was spotted out at Soho House in West Hollywood where he was seen sipping a Moscow mule and "flirting and talking" with two women, according to an observer
