Keith Urban is one of the best coiffed men in music in general, not just the country genre. When he chopped his locks, people noticed. Did his wife, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman, factor into the decision to go short?

No, it was not Kidman's idea and Urban didn't cut his hair at her urging. But she did assist the 'Little Bit of Everything' singer with both her support and offering up her stylist.

While Urban revealed "I just wanted to hack it all off at some point," he discussed it with his missus at first. "I said to Nic, ‘I just want to get it all cut off,’ and she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, it’s just hair, you know. If you don’t like it, it will grow back; it’s no big drama,’” he revealed.

Smart words from a beautiful and talented lady!

Urban decided to go under the scissors when his wife's stylist was in the area --how convenient-- and he was ready to be shorn.

"So she was shooting a campaign here in Nashville and her hairdresser was in town," Urban revealed. "I went to visit her on the set and she was like, ‘Why don’t you get him to do it?’ and I went 'OK' and I just walked in, he cut it off and it was done."

It was as simple as that, and with his wife's approval and her hairdresser.
