Which Hollywood ladies have fallen for John?
Days after splitting from rumored girlfriend Katy Perry, John Mayer already has folks talking about something else — his new haircut.

On Saturday, the 34-year-old musician and his new, shorter locks showed up at SkyBar in West Hollywood to celebrate Mindy Kaling’s new TV series, The Mindy Project.

Who was he chatting up at the swanky event?

Mayer, who arrived solo, spent the evening catching up with Kaling, B.J. Novak and Ali Larter.

Mayer and Perry, 27, first sparked romance rumors in June, when the pair were spotted getting close at Soho House. The two were also photographed together at the Chateau Marmont in early August. But as Celebuzz reported at the time, it wasn’t exactly a date.

“They met up about a potential music collaboration . . . Katy is toying with the idea of working with John,” according to a source.

This isn’t the first time Mayer has shed his long locks. In 2007, during his courtship with Jessica Simpson, Mayer attended that year’s Costume Institute Gala in New York with a shorter ‘do.

Mayer returned to the music scene in May with this fifth studio album, Born and Raised, after a three year hiatus.
