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?

Duh on

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.

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,

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!!!
