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?

Jenn, I did let my kids dye their hair at that age. I always tried to remind myself that its just hair and it will grow back. I did stand my ground when they wanted their noses pierced, etc, as that is permanent. I reminded them how cool I was about their hair every time I heard “you never let me do anything” also……

Last year, I had purple highlights put in. Just one strand, just enough so that it popped out of my blonde hair. It looked awesome. And the fact that I had purple hair didn’t lead to me wearing skirts up to my crotch or getting any body piercings or tattoos. It’s hair. It looked great. I enjoyed the look for six months and then went back to my usual highlights. No big deal.

it’s not letting them be unique if it’s a current trend.

likes natural hair color on

Since I’m in the middle of the Hunger Games series, people with colorful hair and makeup remind me of the idiots that live in the Capitol. God gave you the hair color that looks best with your skin tone and eyes. We are just too spoiled to appreciate it. Both celebs would look a lot prettier with their natural hair. Right now they just look like dolls that a 5 year old has dressed up.

Can I say neither?

Both girls are pretty but not really feeling the blue/purple hair…Katy looks best with BLACK though.

I’m just go ahead and say that purple hair looks good on NO ONE. I’m a fan of looking natural, not like a cartoon character.

They both look dumb and both wear far to much make-up!!!

Hey Jenn- what about the clip in purple streaks?

Is it just me or does Kelly Osbourne kind of look like a toned down Effie from the Hunger Games??
