Katy Perry has finally revealed her real “secret” hair color — pink!
Katy has gone through quite the hair color transformation as of late. A few weeks ago she told fans that she was about to reveal a “secret” hair color, but she had to strip all the black dye from her hair first.
Natural blonde Katy has been dying her hair black for years, so it’s not surprising that she had such a hard time lightening her locks. Katy sported a rusty-red hair color for a few weeks before taking a page from Smurfette and going blonde, the hair color that seemed like Katy’s end game.
However, Katy Perry must have been tired of the boyish color blue after voicing a Smurf — now she has debuted a girly hot pink hue. Since Katy often dons wigs to change her hair, it’s rather surprising that she decided to get a dye job this time around, so she must feel really committed to the color. Whatever her reason for the dramatic change, the color definitely suits the Candy Land queen’s personality.
However, she wouldn’t be the first pop star to rock pink hair. Gwen Stefani seems partly responsible for starting the pink dye trend, although short, spiky-haired musician Pink later became synonymous with the hair color. Katy Perry’s British counterpart Lily Allen has also rocked pink hair in the past, while Nicki Minaj is a big fan of pink wigs.
Since Katy Perry tried to bring the ’80s back in her “Last Friday Night” music video, there could be one fun explanation for her pink hair — she’s going to emulate cartoon rock star Jem of Jem and the Holograms for an upcoming video or performance (it would certainly be fun to see her go retro by saying, “Showtime, Synergy!” on stage).
So what do you think of Katy Perry’s pink hair — is it her perfect hair color, or should she go back to black ASAP?
