She’s done it again! Katy Perry changed her hair color for the umpteenth time last week, adding extensions and dying her strands a dark purple.

“Somehow in the middle of all this… I found time to change my hair color… Finally… #takeaguess #foreverawalkingpantonepalette,” she Tweeted Thursday. Perry debuted the look at the DETAILS @ Midnight bash at the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif., over the weekend.

It’s been quite a year for Perry’s hair; the singer ditched her black strands last June, going red for a short while, making a pit stop at blonde (her natural color) and then going lavender. But by December, she started transitioning back to blonde … only to try blue in January.

Sure, such coloring can take a toll on delicate hair, but Perry’s stylist, Rita Hazan, insists her client takes good care of her mane. “I know she does [at-home conditioning treatments], because she always calls me and asks me to send her more product,” Hazan told PEOPLE in December. “She takes it seriously because she likes to keep her hair healthy. It doesn’t just stop at the salon — it has to continue at home, too, and she understands that.”

Perry definitely pulls off this hue — is there any color that doesn’t work on her? — but we wonder what she’ll try next. As Hazan said, “She’s Katy Perry — she can do anything at any moment.” Tell us: What hair color should Perry try next?

I love her purple! I guessed it actually before I saw her next hair color. I mean I don’t think she’d want to try green cuz typically green hair looks weird on people. But I think she should go for green next!!! A nice shade of green so she doesn’t look weird haha

Also, I love how it’s like light purple on top and the dark on the bottom and I love how she’s wearing black purple. It’s weird, cuz someone I know is also very black and purple right now….

I actually guessed the color. cuz after all her hair colors, only green and purple is left really (of course there are colors, but those are main colors) since green looks weird on people, I guessed purple and VOILA! I love the new gothic look and how the hair is light on top and dark on bottom. And who cares if you’re an adult. You can have fun too! I am pretty sure she is a mature person and her hair color just means she’s bold and not afraid to try new things.

I don’t think anyone on this site understands how hair dye works, man. Her colors were fading, she wasn’t jumping around.

Minoxidil can work and it will NOT make your hair loss worse (you may experience a chgane for a while because hair may chgane its cycle, but in 6 months you should have more hair than before). If you stop the hair will slowly fall off again, just like before.
