Katy Perry Goes Blonde!

Katy Perry Hair Color

She’s a ginger no more! Just one month after debuting her summery red hair, Katy Perry pulled another quick change, popping up on MTV News Thursday with newly blonde locks. And while her latest hair hue is a big deal — she’s had black hair for as long as we can remember — it’s not quite a surprise, considering the pop star is a natural blonde. She’d given us warning, too: a week before stepping out with her red locks, Perry Tweeted about an impending change. “tonight I dye my hair a different color… Can you guess which color?!” she teased to fans. However, she later hinted that something had gone wrong. “So I didn’t get to the exact color I wanted from being black for so long,” she wrote. “2get to goal I have 2b GINGER for 3WKS.” Later calling the process an “#epicfail,” she shared, “If I don’t wait 3wks, I’ll end up w/no hair or a #pixie90scutw/abarretteinthefront It’s okay, I’ll get to my secret color(s) soon! #patience.” Seems like it was worth the wait. Tell us: Do you like Perry as a blonde?

We’re obviously used to her black hair but she is beautiful regardless. Judging from the picture above, I’m not too crazy about the style. She can definately pull of blonde hair. I’m sure future pics will show that.

she is pretty no matter what color her hair is

Well, she’s a beautiful girl. I think I got use to her with black hair, which made her big blue eyes POP! Now she is still pretty, but the blonde makes her look ordinary. Maybe if she changes her hairstyle to something more edgy it might improve her image a bit more.

It set you apart from the crowd, blonde makes you look like everyone else. kind got a kate hudson-britney-jessica simpson thing going on. Plus the dartk hair really lights up those beautiful blue eyes!! Just sayin………

She looked gorgeous about four years ago with her black hair and she seemed so carefree. . .when she became more. . .grown up I guess, I wasn’t as crazy about it. I didn’t like the brown or the streaks and the red just wasn’t her. I’m loving the blonde and am interested in seeing what she does with it- makeup? streaks? hairstyles? lol xD

Why is everyone going to blonde? I’m going back to blonde, which i my natural color. But 2 people on my facebook went blonde and now Katy went blonde.

well, it IS her natural color, so i would think it would look good, but it’s a particularly pretty tone….. i’m diggin it….. for now. ;) i tend to get bored w/ hair and change mine quite often, so, i actually think she should go back to red for a lil while when she get’s bored of this color…… red is a nice fall color.. just saying. ;)
