The chop comes courtesy of hairstylist to the stars, Chris McMillan. Sound familiar? He's the guy who gave Jennifer Aniston her "Rachel" haircut. He's also the maestro behind Kim K.'s wedding-day coif. Remember Miley Cyrus' transformation from Hannah Montana to badass short-haired babe? McMillan manned the scissors behind that major change.
"What do you think, Chris?" Perry asks in the video. We can spy McMillian putting a few finishing touches on the style, but his smile says it all. He's grinning ear-to-ear as he fixes Perry's peroxide bangs and choppy layers. The cut is short — really short.
"I love it. Are you kidding? I've been wanting to do this since the day I met you," McMillan says. "Do you remember?"
While she's admiring her new haircut, we can see Perry messing up the back and playing with her newly textured look. It's a major change from her shoulder-length blonde hair, but judging by how happy Perry looks in the clip, we're sure she's feeling it.
"I wasn't ready," she admits as the camera zooms in and out on her face. Those red lips, fixed in a sly smirk, say it all. She ends the vid with a sweet kiss to the camera.
