Justin Bieber’s hairstylist Vanessa Price talks to Elle.com

Vanessa Price just did an interview with Elle.com where she talks about, among other things, her biggest client, Justin Bieber…

“It feels like silk,” stylist Vanessa Price says of the hair that makes millions of girls weak in their American Eagle–clad knees.

Two years ago, the music industry vet took her scissors to the mullety hair of a certain then 15-year-old YouTube phenom, snipping it into the side-swept glory known worldwide as Bieber Bangs (may they R.I.P.).

Today, Price and Justin Bieber are inseparable: “You’re the only one who’s allowed to cut my hair,” Bieber told Price. A week before his seventeenth birthday, Bieber was ready for a change, so Price pulled out her shears. “Teenage angst,” explains Price, who chopped the bangs “to death,” revealing not just a new look “suitable for a young man instead of a teenage boy,” but also unveiling his forehead. “The world had never seen it before!” The pop princeling also relies upon Price’s makeup skills to cover the occasional zit. (“He’s a teenager, he works hard—of course he gets breakouts,” she says.)

Justin’s coif never seems out of place. What’s your trick?
It’s all about the cut. Don’t fight the direction your hair grows. For side bangs, you need a cut that gradually goes from longer to shorter, but not drastically. Then it’s about the blow-dry. Justin’s hair is fine, so I don’t use a brush, just my hands. Thicker hair needs a brush to guide it into place.

On his days off from performing, does Justin style his own hair?
Yes. He loves his hair; he’s very proud of it. He pays insanely close attention to detail, so he knows how to make it look good. It’s not that he’s vain—he just gets it.

You seem to have mastered the no-makeup makeup look with Justin.
I just use a little concealer and powder. Justin naturally has beautiful, long lashes, so we don’t need to use any mascara—he’s genetically blessed with great hair.
