Katy Perry Goes Blonde!

Katy Perry Hair Color

She’s a ginger no more! Just one month after debuting her summery red hair, Katy Perry pulled another quick change, popping up on MTV News Thursday with newly blonde locks. And while her latest hair hue is a big deal — she’s had black hair for as long as we can remember — it’s not quite a surprise, considering the pop star is a natural blonde. She’d given us warning, too: a week before stepping out with her red locks, Perry Tweeted about an impending change. “tonight I dye my hair a different color… Can you guess which color?!” she teased to fans. However, she later hinted that something had gone wrong. “So I didn’t get to the exact color I wanted from being black for so long,” she wrote. “2get to goal I have 2b GINGER for 3WKS.” Later calling the process an “#epicfail,” she shared, “If I don’t wait 3wks, I’ll end up w/no hair or a #pixie90scutw/abarretteinthefront It’s okay, I’ll get to my secret color(s) soon! #patience.” Seems like it was worth the wait. Tell us: Do you like Perry as a blonde?

So beautiful! I wish she’d go even a little lighter! I was hoping she’d go back to her natural color someday. That black is to harsh, jarring, gaudy for her pretty face. The blonde really accentuates her beauty. Keep it Katy!

I prefer her as a brunette. The blonde look makes her look plain and she’s very pretty. The dark hair brings out her features and her eyes.

I love it! You can tell with her skin tone that it is her natural color. Her skin looks radiant with it blonde, and her eyes are much sweeter and softer. Maybe she wants to have a baby soon, because you shouldn’t dye your hair while pregnant!

Ummm…the ‘ginger’ wasn’t really ginger. It’s the color that happens when you apply lightener to hair that has black haircolor on it. It is usually known as ORANGE BRASS in the salon. I suspect she’s not done completely lightening it. She needs to adapt her makeup to her new color-it’s too harsh. Yes, I am a hairdresser and have been for 20 years. I’ll bet that hair feels like mush.

I think she looks very pretty with blonde hair. She’s pretty no matter what hair color she has.

I realized reading my post that I meant to write katy perry can pull “off” blonde hair not “of”

Not a fan of her music, but I actually like this look on her

I’m partial to brunette hair in general, but I love the blonde hair on her, she looks like an old Hollywood star!
