It’s a purple reign: both Katy Perry and Kelly Osbourne dyed their hair purple this week, setting off a new mini-trend.

According to Perry’s stylist, Rita Hazan, the pop star’s longer hair is “purple velvet,” InStyle.com reports. “It’s dark and rich. It’s very punk rock. I love creating colors for her because she always knows how to rock it,” Hazan adds.

Osbourne went purple on Tuesday, Tweeting the process to fans. Earlier this year, after she added a bit of lavender to her gray locks, she told PEOPLE, “I think that I have an addiction to dying my hair, because I always like it to be different. I don’t like being compared to other people.” (Sorry, Kelly, we’re going to do it anyway!) Tell us: Who works her purple best, Katy or Kelly?

To all of those of you who are bashing on Jenn and the ones giveing her “laid back “advise……. It may not be natural (i respect the fact that you like the natural “god” given colors we are born with) but guess what, you are neither THEIR mother or friends, so keep your rude comments to yourself. Dying your hair, no matter the age, doesnt results in the need to become tattooed, pierced or promiscuous……. i had my hair many many different “unnatural” colors when i was younger and i never had thought of these things. Guaranteed that IF they end up tattooed, pierces or promiscuous, they were in that state of mind before hand, and even if not, i highly doubt their first thought at seeing colors in the rainbow is ” Gee, seeing the color green or ocean blue makes me want to have sex and get tattoos” You tell them to grow up and be a parent, not a friend– Who knew that YOU were the one who thought for all of us? you obviously dont think outside the box and are very single minded- I bet you’d like life more if you werent so closed in.

They both look fine, but they need to stop
dyeing their hair one color after another.
Soon it will all fall out.

I don’t like either one!

Semi-permanent and demi-permanent hair dye, the most common forms of dye for the “unnatural colors,” doesn’t hurt your hair because it doesn’t chemically alter it. It rests on top of your hair’s protein coating sort of like a paint, which is why it fades out over time.

What *does* affect your hair is bleaching, and all of these “natural-colored” dyes you see at places like Walmart, Kroger, or in the salons. If there is a developer creme involved, you are stripping the natural proteins from your hair. You can do protein treatments to counteract that, though.

I don’t LOVE either, but if I had to pick I’d say Kelly’s. I think al lof Katie Perry’s hair colors look like they were done with food coloring. The blue she had previously, was horrible. She’s so beautiful too. If anything she should just go back to her normal & do a few fun streaks of color, not her whole head.

Lose the purple, it looks clown-ish.

Kelly is awesome and her mom Sharon is an incredible woman! Katy Perry sucks big time!
