Katy Perry was on Saturday Night Live for the first time as a host. Appearing on the show before as just a musical guest, this time she had a new look. For the first time, fans had an opportunity to see her latest hair color up close and personal.
Catching glimpses of the California Gurl this past summer, she was very open about her hairstyle change. A natural blonde, Perry has sported a dark hue for years. Dark brown (almost black) hair against her ivory complexion fooled many into thinking that was her natural shade.
On Saturday Night Live, Perry sported many costumes and wigs, but her blonde bob was new to many. Joined by several celebrities, like Alec Bladwin, Perry’s apperance was a hit.
In several promos for the late night comedy show, Perry was seen with her new do. A flattering cut just to her chin, she no longer had pink or blue or even black hair. Blonde indeed, she looked hot. In the promo below, she also sported the Cat Print Shift dress form Victoria Beckham’s new fashion line.
Tweeting this summer about her hair ordeal, Perry explained,
“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.#epicfail 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.”
Katy Perry’s Many Hair Colors
Sporting a pink highlighted blonde bob, her highlights seems to have faded. It could just have been a gradual transition from hot pink to what People Magazine called lavendar to a now natrual looking blonde. Is this a new side of Perry? Possibly a subdued, tamer settling down Perry?
Whether she was funny or not does not really matter, because she looks amazing. Could this be the beginning of a new persona for Katy Perry? A woman who can pull off being a blonde, brunette or redhead deserves major style credit. Which color was best?
