10 Moments When Katy Perry Left Us Drooling Over Her Hair
Katy Perry is one of the most celebrated pop artists of this generation. Her albums sold for millions of copies since 2008; her songs lead the top charts for weeks; and her concerts all over the world always draw a massive crowd. It is undeniable that Katy Perry is one of the women who define this generation.
Apart from her music, Katy Perry is also known for her fashion sense such as her unique hairstyles in kooky colors.
Here are 10 of our favorite hair moments from her.
- When she wore jet black curly hair AND curly bangs
When Katy started getting mainstream attention in 2008, she was known by her mid-length jet black hair and blunt bangs. Here she is in 2010 looking classy and sophisticated with curly hair and curly bangs. When she walked in the Grammy’s sporting this look, girls from all over the world probably snuck off with their moms’ rollers.
- When she sported purple, pink, and blue highlights
They say that this was the start of Katy Perry’s hair transformation. Her look became more edgy when she added streaks on her curls and got rid of those blunt bangs. Because of her, everyone suddenly wanted to be peacocks.
- When she became a ginger
Katy looks so delicate with copper hair. From her iconic jet black hair, she paired her newly dyed ginger hair with a bob and some curls. After this appearance, copper wasn’t just a shade in the hair color chart. Everyone wanted to try and see if copper looks as electrifying on them as it does with Katy.
- When her hair matched the cherry blossoms in Japan
Katy showed up in the 2011 VMA Awards in a Kimono and parasol with pastel pink hair. In short, she brought Japan to the US! Aside from bagging numbers of awards that night, she made the news with her new hair color, giving new hope to every girl’s dream of becoming a living Barbie doll.
- When she wore the ocean to the Grammys.
Who knew that ocean blue would look just as good on top of your head? Also, is it just us or does that updo remind you of waves in the vast Pacific?
- When her hair was as tasty as bubble gum
It seems Katy’s motto is the brighter, the better. We couldn’t help but nod in agreement when we saw just how fabulous (and tasty) this bright blue mane was. Is anybody else thinking about bubble tape and mermaids?
- When she gave new life to the color emerald
In her Cosmopolitan cover shoot, Katy Perry dyed her bob emerald green. Has she ever looked more regal?
- When she wore the California sunshine on her head
After a series of vibrant hair colors, Katy Perry settled with blonde locks during the premiere of The Smurfs. We were betting that because of the movie, she would take a cue from the characters and dye her hair Smurf-blue. But no, our girl doesn’t like being predictable. Instead, she brought the California sunshine to the premiere.
- When she rocked the faded hair color
Hair color fading is one of the most annoying parts of dyeing your hair but Katy taught us that washed-out color could be just as fabulous as when it’s new. Just take a look at how dazzling she looks with a bob dyed rose gold.
- When she walked down the red carpet wearing purple hair and performed onstage in jet black hair.
In the 2015 Grammy Awards, Katy Perry showed up in purple hair and after an hour or two, walked onstage and performed in jet black hair. Did she employ a double? Was she wearing a wig? Was she even really present at the red carpet? None of these even matter seeing as she looked twice as fantastic sporting two hairstyles in one night. Bravo, Katy Perry! Bravo!
All these hair transformations from our favorite California girl have taught us that life is too short to sport the same boring hairdo. Apart from catchy tunes, the world owes its bravery in hair and fashion to Katy Perry. So stop wondering if you could pull off an outrageous hair color. Don’t be afraid of change. Drag yourself to the nearest salon and just do it.
