John Mayer achieves life-long goal of 80s hairdo

May 1st, 2008 // 93 Comments

When John Mayer blogs, the world listens. This time around he shares with us a deep passion for obtaining the perfect 80s-style feathered hairdo. As a die-hard user of Aqua-Net myself, I can’t fault John on his quest for radicalness. And now the immortal words of John Mayer:

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.

I find it best to look at the pics I included while listening to “Broken Wings” by Mr. Mister:

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again, learn to live so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open and let us in
Take these broken wings

Yeah, all that stuff. Fly, fly, Mr. Mayer. Fly, fly

    It looks nice and puts shape in his face. I am looking forward to John’s concert in Irvine CA this summer.

  2. Most retarded hairstyle EVER (besides the business in the front, party in the back mullet)..

  3. andie

    Creepy- like Richard Marx or something. Ew. Good God, is going to do the whole mullet thing next? *shudder*

  4. Oh yeah, and the “feaux-hawk” (can’t spell it, but you know what I mean)..

  5. Uncle Eccoli

    What a douche. He actually believes somebody gives enough of a shit about his haircut to blog about it? What a douche.

  6. D4P

    Predictable. The 70s came back in the 90s, and the 80s were bound to come back in 00s.

  7. nipolian

    John Mayer just wants one of those magical blowjobs that Sheryl Lowe must give. There’s no way Rob fucks her for her looks.

  8. dude

    John Mayer then added,

    “Just kidding about that. My boyfriend totally made me get it cut like this. “

  9. lola

    looks good, but there is too much black with the jacket

  10. I LOVE JOHN MAYER

    JOHN THANK YOU FOR HAVING A CONCERT IN IRVINE CA. I WAS DISAPPOINTED LAST YEAR WHEN YOU HAD YOUR CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL BECAUSE I TRY TO STAY AWAY FROM LA.

    YOUR HAIR IS THICK AND LOOKS GOOD NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO!

    I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY WHEN YOU SAID YOU LOOKED AT YOUR OLD BLOGS AND REALIZED YOU WERE A DOUCH BAG. HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD ADMIT THIS!

    STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF AND KEEP YOUR SOULFUL BLUES MUSIC COMING!

    The thing is, there are good ways to bring back the 80′s, and very very bad ways.

    *Good ways: roach/feather hair clips…..
    Ok, that’s all I can think of.

    *Bad ways: stirup pants……
    Ok, my brain sucks..

  12. dude

    Hey OC Dee, I live in Irvine.

    Which will make it convenient to kill John Mayer.

  13. mamadough

    #10, shut the fuck up jessica. you have that restraining order, remember?

  14. dude

    John, your ploy is working. The hair totally makes a statement!
    It says, “I’M A BOTTOM”.

  15. jrz

    Guh-HAY!

  16. dude

    LMAO mamadough at #13. Funniest comment of the day.

  17. 2. FRIST!!!

    I drink to that ~raising my coffe mug

  18. Delicious Alcohol

    MOTHERFUCKER!!! He stole my look.

  19. Auntie Kryst

    Mr. Mister?? Meh, The Hooters were much more cringe inducing. Fuck it, I’m going to peddle my Kuwahara down to the liqour store. Hopefully someone will buy me a two-liter of Bartles & Jaymes. Veggi, do you need me to pick up rolling papers?

  20. Anal Fistula

    i cannot believe he wrote such a douche-tastic blog…what an asshat

  21. Fumus

    John Mayer is awesome. Anyone who doesn’t agree clearly hates the word awesome and everything it stands for.

    In other news, I got my tax rebate $600 bones emmers effers! So group hugs to all you crazy superficial commenter’s. You guys make my day*

    *well not as much as getting $600 for free does :-)

  22. In keeping with the 80s style hair, he reportedly let his pubes grow down to his knees.

    I’m donating my money to charity. They need it more than I do.

    John Mayer Rocks!

    Vote Democrat!

    End the War!

    Make the elite 3 percent pay the highest taxes and not the other 70 percent like me.

    Vote Democrat!

  24. veggi

    Auntie! Of course!! Blueberry please….

    Are these leg warmers too much with the bandana around my jeans?? Nawwwww, surely not…. but I can’t smoke this AND hold my boom box..

  25. Mos

    On the bright side, looking at these pictures have given me a medical excuse to look at immediately porn. Hopefully my penis will survive.

  26. fake boobs

    Is he going to wear those short shorts and knee-socks next?

  27. Austin Powers

    I checked into the 80′s this morning. All there was was a gas shortage and a Flock of Seagulls – that’s about it.

  28. Chupacabra

    Man, I love these IRONIC HIPSTERS and what they are brining back.

    Listen, John that hair aint nuthin without the members-only jacket. NAH-THING!

    I have this theory that the ironic hipsters will eventually swing so far fucking out of their minds that they will start wearing those old orthopedic light-gray grandfather shoes. Are you wit me on this?

    (I also love how he thinks he’s so cute in his little blog! you are “so CUTE” John Mayer… SO. FUCKING. CUTE.)

  29. absolute2

    OMG, he looks so handsome. Just saw his profile on millionaire&celeb dating site “W e a l t h y R o m a n c e. co m” last week. I am wondering what kind of relationship he is looking for on that site/.

  30. absolutefucking3

    O M G I know what kind of relationship he’s looking for! He wants to FUCK you in the ASS, absolute2.

    go. to. hell.

  31. veggi

    29- one with George Michael..

  32. Bill Clinton

    What a pretty boy!

  33. ya know...

    …he’s joking. You know that, right? I mean, he got the haircut and everything, but the whole blog thing is a put-on, so he can sit back and laugh when people take it seriously (just go to the blog on the link Fish gave). So THAT’S the kind of douchebag he is, which is different from the kind of douchebag who would take a retro haircut so seriously (like, say, Patrick Swayze, although he’ll be hairless and bony and brown soon).

  34. Beav

    Richard Marx looks good for his age.

  35. Veggi, what about the red and black Michael Jackson jackets and parashute pants, banana clips, pumps, alligator shirts, rubber bracelets, and enormous gaudy-ass belts??

  36. LadyJane

    That hairdo is NOT a wonderland.

  37. Oddly, those jeans were actually first purchased in the 80s too. But no Members Only jacket? You disappoint me Mr Mayer…..

  38. veggi

    FRIST!!! Hell yeah! And can’t leave out shoulder pads and neon EVERYTHING!!

  39. Tits McCholo

    Tight rolling your jeans above your white high-tops yet, Mayer? Maybe for the encore? I see you already have the shoes on…

  40. veggi

    Are those Jordache jeans?

  41. Oh God I forgot about the shoulderpads…geh!!

  42. Beav

    I don’t even know if his music any good, all I can focus on when I see him are those orgasm faces he makes when he plays guitar, fucking gross.

  43. identity hidden to protect self

    I have to play his damn music…… and people actually request it.

  44. is there a new post yet?

  45. Girl

    Seriously, how the H-E-L-L is this guy famous? He’s so cocky and gross, not to mention these idiot actresses that swoon over him! I’m so disappointed with Jennifer Aniston! The dating pool must be very small in Hollywood.

    Hey, here’s an idea girls: Date a normal guy. I bet you’ll have a better relationship that’ll actually last.

    Narcissism….it’s such a shame.

  46. This must be for his Huey Lewis and the News Revival Tour.

  47. Girl on Girl

    LMFAO at NO. 31′s comment to 29!

    Ps- I had my first ever girl on girl last night and I’m in heaven today! I can’t stop thinking about it!

  48. 43–This is the way John feels his music. All musicians make faces but John has taken it to the next level. I love John and his Continuum CD the best because it has soulful blues music. John has a great sense of humor too.

    Check out John playing the blues:
