Katy Perry Goes Back to Blonde ... Almost

Katy Perry‘s hair has had a bit of an identity crisis this year, but it seems that for now, the California Gurl has settled on a semi-permanent color: blonde with lavender highlights.

Perry popped up at the David Lynch Foundation’s Change Begins Within benefit celebration in Los Angeles on Saturday sporting a chic new bob, which replaces the long lavender locks she’s sported for months. With her California Dreams tour over, it seems the singer is ready for a change.

Perry, who’s had jet-black hair for a good portion of her career, began dying her hair in June, first going red. A month later, she changed her hue again, going blonde (her natural color) in an effort to achieve a “secret color.” That shade ended up being lavender, a look she sported from August up until this weekend — save for the moments she opted for her colorful wigs, instead. Tell us: What do you think of Perry’s new hair color?

She not a natural bleach blonde?! And the color is Pink – not lavender. AND this isn’t a “new do” Anyone that has dyed their hair an unnatural color knows it fades super fast. Those aren’t highlights, it’s what’s leftover from her letting the pink runout. Obviously the roots show it’s not a new dye job – it’s her being lazy or giving her hair a break before it falls out.

Love the cut. Just wish she would settle on a color. Hate the pink!!!

I like the cut, but the pink has to go. Go blonde for a while, but eventually she will have to go back to her dark because bleaching and coloring blonde is very damaging to DARK hair. She is too young and the roots come in way too fast for up keep. Dark hair is way to coarse compared to blondes, and in the end, she will go back to her dark because it will never grow. She’ll end up like Gaga and Spears, Hair extensions forever. Thus, FAKE hair! Guys like feeling “real” hair. IT’S NICE FOR A CHANGE, BUT GO BACK TO DARK EVENTUALLY.
