Katy Perry wanted ‘edgy’ hair
Katy Perry chose to dye her locks lavender because she believes it looks “edgy, but still glamorous”.
The American songstress is famed for her quirky style, and has debuted a range of hair hues and styles over the years. The beauty has showcased jet black, blonde and red tresses, and has recently been spotted sporting lavender locks.
Katy’s colourist says the singer wanted "an uncommon colour, something not too pink, but not too purple.” Rita Hazan says that the stunning star kept her options open when going for the statement look.
"She felt that lavender would keep her look edgy, but still glamorous, and a lighter pastel shade that would work well with her skin tone," she told US Weekly.
Achieving the 26-year-old's dream colour took three trips to the salon. Rita also used a number of treatments to prevent hair breakage
"It's years of skill and experience...and I prayed to the hair gods!" she quipped.
Despite the painstaking process, Rita believes Katy will be opting for another colour sometime soon. The hair expert says the star has the taste for colouring, so will now probably want to experiment.
"Now that she sees how fun colour is, I think she'll keep changing it up,” she said.
