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?

Wow….they both have the same hair color as my 16 year-old cousin….and they’re how old? FYI Kelly, you can be different without looking like a mature clown.

looks weird on both of them..purple is not natural looking unless you are some exotic bird..

I like the vibrancy in Katy’s hair but love the suttleness in Kelly’s…. 50/50 flip here

Anything on Kelly is better than the lavender. That looked HORRIBLE.

I think Katy looks so good as just a plain brunette. But I think this looks better than the blue.

All of you people saying “oh let her do it, it will grow out, it full fills her desire to be unique, if thats the worst she is still good, let kids dye their hair” No 15 year old needs to be going around with purple or whatever unnatural color in their hair. My sister was 15 and she wanted her hair blue…my mom gave in. It’s only the beginning, next(just like my sister)they will want peircings and tattoos and use your “desire to be unique” defense against you. You are their PARENT not their friend.

Kitchy ~ Why not get the clips for her that are colored hair in all shades. Its a compromise. I think that kids want to do things to fit in. I have raised 2 well adjusted, college grad kids and they both colored their hair and it never went farther than that. I said no to body piercings and tatoos. Hair it washes out and it grows out. Its not the end of the world.
