John Mayer's Hairspiration is Michael J. Fox
The 30-year-old musician then decided to blog about it in another tongue-in-cheek entry: “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.”
Check out the photographs Mayer used as inspiration at his blog, where you’ll see pics of Michael J. Fox, Shaun Cassidy, Mary Lou Retton and Kristy McNichol.
