Katy Perry Hair ColorJohn Sciulli/WireImage; Inset: Jamie McCarthy/Wire

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?

Who cares? Doesn’t she think she’s a little old for this? I thought teenagers needed attention this desperately.

bbb on

What she’ll try next is being bald if she keeps dying her hair at this pace (although clearly she’s also using hair pieces…she should just do colorful wigs rather than putting her hair through all this junk).

amy on

She looks fantastic like always.

Katy is not a bad looking girl, but she needs to stop with the weird hair colors. It’s time to grow up and be a woman. Blue hair might be ok for teenagers, but not for an adult.

I like Katy’s new Hair-color, she should try black, red, whatever suits her!

Linda on

I like purple, She’s a very talented singer , dancer, song writer. If she wants to change her hair colors every so often to match her set or just to look pretty, I say You go girl.
I have friend’s who do the same except they use blonde , brown or black. But they’re not an artist on a stage. I’d like to add that’s a lovely shade of purple too.

Melissa on

I love it! Purple is my fav color so yeah,i think its really pretty ;)

Lori on

Wh ycan’t an adult have fun hair colors? Why are you people being so judgemental??? It’s not like she’s in some white color job market, like a financial advisor, politician or lawyer. She’s a pop star…. What do you expect??? I love it!!! If people could stop judging others based on their appearances the world would be a much better place. It’s not like she’s sloppy or unshowered. It’s just hair!!!

Kim on

I’ll be so glad when this weird hair coloring trend dies. It’s not attractive on anyone.

Kay on

Love It!!!!

iluvmychis on

I have no problems with changing up the hair colors but that is going to cause some serious damage to her hair. Guess I’ll just hope she knows what she’s doing. :) All I know is I can’t do that kind of stuff to my hair or I won’t have any anymore.

gerri23 on

I would like to see plaid….

Tara on

Good gravy. Some of you take news on People waaaay too seriously. She’s a pop star. They do things like this. Some of you need to pop your zoloft and relax.

Natalie on

I never understood what was so wrong with her black hair. She looked gorgeous! Much more so than with any other multitude of hair colors she’s donned thus far.

Daisy on

you all must be very naive to think that she’s the only one who dies her hair frequently. Jennifer Anniston dies her hair just as much – most celebs do. You just don’t notice as much. Looks great Katie!!!

Tammy on

It is a really pretty color but I agree with those who say she’s a little too old to be doing that.

orange on

You people seriously need to get a life. She’s A PERFORMER!! She sings, dances entertains..get it? I really don’t want someone I PAY to go see in concert, looking like my dayghter’s teacher..or my lawyer.

orange on

*daughter*

JMOS on

She looks like Boy George…..Culture Club Anyone???? LMAO

Heather on

Seriously..who says she’s too old? When did we stop living our life and live by the standards other people who we’ve never even met want us to. If she wants to dye her hair, go for it! I wish I could do the fun colors. I’m 23 and yet, if I did, I’d get called out that I’m immature and need to grow up…because of the color of my hair. I wonder if you judge a book by it’s cover? Maybe that is why so many adults are depressed…they can’t do fun things anymore because we forget we only have ONE life to live…so be happy!

Audrey on

her roots aren’t showing like they did with the blue, which is a plus

I love it!! I’m a natural brunette but have been dying mine blond for maybe 20 years now and don’t see anything wrong with it, also she is pop star so that makes a difference.

tillie on

If she keeps that up by the time she’s 30 she will be bald

ThatOneGuy on

I love Katy Perry, but…

YAWN!

C on

Doesn’t look like she’s taking the divorce well…she looks HORRIBLE!!!! Next thing you know she will be shaving her head and wielding an umbrella at photogs like Britney when she had her meltdown.

jiboko on

Katy, go for coloring hair anytime as long as her job approves. She is musican.
After 50, I decided to bleach 4-5 inches hair ends out and will try to put one colors of hair strips since it it temporary colorings. And have a couple of tattoos. Touch of youth fountain and move on even aging….

Quen on

I think Katy is pretty cool, love the colors, but on the flip side, it does bother me that the media and news outlets report things in this city that have absolutely no merit nor value in the world we live in outside of Los Angeles- where people are starving, being beaten daily, our economic climate and other things that really do make this article and whoever took the time to write an entire page about one’s hair color, seem like an idiot, or rather, an editor who’s obviously got nothing better to ask his or her department to come up with more interesting news. I’m so tired of gossip magazines, do we really need this kind of ‘education’ in our faces every day? I’m certain I’m one of many who feels this way. I’d prefer to read about important things!

An6ra on

Those are some cheap looking extensions!!!

People who are really talented don’t have to resort to blue hair to perform. She looks absolutely ridiculous!

Her hair is going to fall out of her head. And she looks like Boy George.

I HATE HER HAIR COLORS,

Angelfish33 on

There is no way that her natural hair color is blonde! She doesn’t have the skin coloring, her eyebrows are very dark… who came up with that?

Amanda K on

I love Katy but her hair is going to fall out one of these days from over processing.

bre on

Just because you age doesn’t mean you can’t color your hair. She’s a very unique person and an entertainer so if she wants to color her hair no one has the place to judge her on it. I love katy perry and her crazy hair!

Leslie on

Quit with the negative comments! She’s hot with any color of hair!

She seems to be a bit of a lost soul. Katy – who are you?

givekatyattention on

People who do things like this do it for attention and publicity. It’s no more than a cheap parlour trick. Maybe she should do some charity work instead of changing her hair every other day. She’d get better attention then, and someone other than she would benefit.

Rikki on

How old is she again??

Lauren on

Oh boy.. why Katy?? This isn’t doing you justice! Go back to blue!

Aileeen on

She looks best with black hair. The rest of these colors are detracting from her looks. She can’t vary her hair color too much and still look stunning like Rhianna.

1) She is not a blonde. She, like many other delusional women, may have been blonde as a child but has relied on the bottle to keep her hair “blonde” since puberty.

2)That is obviously a weave so not sure what part is dyed and what is just tacked onto her head.

Marti on

I don’t like this color of hair on her looks bad

Tricia on

Lisa,NOBODY MESSES WITH KATY!!!
You shouldn’t say that!You’re crossing the line!NVM…I just LOVE Katy’s new hair color!
THE BEST!

Donna on

How does she keep her hair from falling out??? All of that chemical treatment on top of all the styling, I would be bald by now. I am serious, what is used to dye hair these extreme colors, any hairdressers care to inform us, I highlight my hair twice a year and it does damage,

maggie elaina on

Judging by the way she keeps going short to long, I am more inclined to think she just keeps changing wigs & extensions, not actually coloring her own hair.

You know I think Katy has to cater to a specific age group. And although Im sure her music is popular with more than just teenagers if you take a look at oter “similar” artists then Im sure you’ll find other similarities between them other than the hair color choices. Shes kinda a badass and Im proud of her. I dont exactly cry every time I hear firework beacuse Im a 22 year old male. However I do think she might have changed some intrapersonally and from what Im told shes trying really hard to keep it together. So use your brain a little and cut the girl some slack thanks!!!

earthlovelove on

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….

earthlovelove on

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.

earthlovelove on

It’s also funny cuz someone I know is also very black and purple right now.

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.
