Katy Perry and her new platinum blonde hair stunned fans everywhere when she stepped onto the Grammy’s red carpet. The newly blonde locks were cut into a lob and styled with a slightly wavy messy look.
Katy spoke to Ryan Seacrest about her hair before the show began, saying: “It’s like the last color in all of the Pantone books that I haven’t done, so it’s my last resort. So I was like: ‘I guess I’ll be blonde now!’ I guess this is it.”
She was, of course, referring to the fact that she’s dyed her hair pretty much every other color of the rainbow. The singer was first spotted with blonde hair a few weeks ago, but at the Grammy’s it was a few shades lighter and brighter and cut into the new shape.
Katy offset the super blonde look by keeping her eyebrows and false lashes nice and dark, while going with some peach tones in the eyelid area. Katy’s makeup artist Anthony H. Nguyen explained that the makeup was chosen to flatter the dress, and that he applied plenty of highlighter to the face. They went with a warm brick red lip to stay within the proper color family and, it really helped bring the look together.
The new hair direction might also be reflective of her musical evolution. The star explained that she’s been feeling a new angle that we will soon be hearing plenty of.
“I don’t know if it’s because I’m 32 or I’ve been doing this for a minute or I just decided to like, wake up a little bit more, but the voice that I feel like I’ve found in the past year, I think “Chained to the Rhythm” is a good example of that — and then some other songs that are coming!” she explained. “So I’m very excited, I’m just going to let them roll out one by one and hopefully the people will love them.”
We can’t wait to hear what’s next for Katy Perry, but we’ll all stand behind her because we love a girl that can rock different hair colors and styles the way that she does.
