Katy Perry debuts pink hair

Katy Perry stepped out in California with a new pink ‘do. Is it on purpose, or a terrible mistake?

Katy Perry has new pink hair

Katy Perry always manages to surprise us: she’s constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to fashion — and she’s not afraid of rocking a crazy manicure. Now, the Teenage Dream singer is wearing yet another hair color: she dyed it pink!

The singer and voice of Smurfette was spotted with the bright-colored hue on Monday in Los Angeles. Something about it makes us think it’s either temporary or a mistake — you can clearly see Perry’s blond roots among the pink strands.

Perry has been on a hair color kick over these past few weeks: she’s gone from black to red to blonde to pink. We like some of her hair colors more than others.

So, who inspires her style?

“There’s a varied range of women who have inspired my style, both fictional and non-fictional,” she said. “I have even been influenced by cartoon characters too, like Judy Jetson, Betty Boop and Wonder Woman. And, of course, real people such as Dita Von Teese, Daphne Guinness, Agyness Deyn and Chloe Sevigny.”

Perry’s California blue

Perry has several costume changes during her tour — including this electric blue wig. Somehow, it fits her.

Katy’s cute as a blonde

We absolutely love everything about the whimsical outfit Perry wore to the New York City premiere of The Smurfs in late July. Her sequined dress, blue eyeshadow and Smurfette nails are adorable, but we really love her blond hair. It fits her — probably because it’s actually her natural color.

Perry’s questionable red

Perry planned to go blond a little earlier than she did — she had to make a bit of a pit-stop at a brassy red color.

“So I didn’t get to the exact color I wanted from being black for so long! 2get to goal I have 2b GINGER for 3WKS,” she tweeted. “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”

Perry’s tried-and-true black

We’re most accustomed to seeing Perry with her black hair. We’re not a fan of when she wears bangs — but we do love when she lets it flow freely, like at the London premiere of hubby Russell Brand’s film, Arthur.
