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?

I like it, she looks fresh and a little younger too.

I prefer the blonde hair, softer looking. She is very pretty and it looks great on her. I think it could be the way it is styled that has made some people not like it. I think she would look cute with bangs.

Ehh. Not the best color for her. Definitely looks better dark.

I wouldn’t have recognized her, but I like it.

Her IQ just took a dive..!!!!

She’s always gorgeous, in my opinion, but I definitely preferred the darker hair on her. The blonde kind of washes her out & makes her look a bit generic.

Blonde IS her natural colour!!

It was dyed dark.

WOW, I love it. I didn’t even recognize her!

COMPLETELY PLANNED BY HER HAIR STYLIST. Her stylist knows what they are doing. To go from BLACK to BLONDE, you must go to the red stage first, wait a month, and then finish it to blonde. This wasn’t a surprise, but acting like it is more fun than trying to explain it all.

Love her with dark hair! She is so cute, but blond is not her color.
