Feeling bold? Like, really bold? Then you might want to test out one of these out-of-the box celebrity hairstyles. The best part? You don’t even need a a personal stylist to get these looks.

It’s rare that a celeb braid can turn our heads anymore, but two editors had a lengthy (and exclamation-point filled) iChat conversation about the high, plaited side pony Katy Perry wore on a shopping trip during Paris Fashion Week. Perry has sported every style — and color — under the sun, but now is clearly having a braid moment. Her super-tight, one-sided braid is perfect for Throwback Thursday (as in, we’re pretty sure we rocked this exact same style in elementary school) but unlike many of her styles, can be easily recreated at home. Although, Katy’s braid looks so perfect, we’re wondering if there’s a hairpiece involved.

On the even edgier end of the spectrum, Kylie Jenner added some bold blue streaks to her ebony strands. The youngest of the Kardashian brood first dyed a section of her hair blonde, then changed her mind and went back to black before adding in the colorful highlights. And she shared an up-close look with her fans on Keek. Think her next step should be an allover blue like Demi Lovato?

And finally, not even Kerry Washington’s voluminous gingham taffeta Prada confection could distract us from that half-faux bob she wore to last night’s Saks Fifth Avenue event in N.Y.C. Possibly pulling inspiration from Claire Danes’s Emmy’s do, the Scandal star pinned under her glossy curls on the left side of her head, then let the other half flow freely.

Which of these styles are you most likely to try?
