Katy Perry’s haircolor sings the blues

It wasn’t surprising to see Katy Perry in blue hair at the MTV Movie Awards, but it WAS surprising when she wore the color in a way that works for real women! Compared with her electric blue wig, the pastel hairpieces seem downright conservative. The peek-a-boo streaks twirl through ringlets, making them new and different without screaming “Look at me”!

If you WANT to scream “Look at me,” follow Katy’s cue. Electric blue perfectly fits the singer’s acting career which includes providing the voice of Smurfette in the Smurfs movie and guest starring in the Simpsons.  When asked about wearing the hot hue to the MTV event, Katy said it made sense because she’s wearing it on the cover of her California Gurls.

If you fall in-between mild and wild, consider going with heavier streaks of blue and purple as K.P. has done. Like the wig, these colored hairpieces require no commitment. They work especially well with full, loose curls. Russell Brand’s fiancee isn’t the only one dabbling with the haircolor. At a past MTV Music Awards show, Gwen Stefani stood out in pale blue pigtails. The daring women who dye for this shade have nothing on Marge Simpson who’s been wearing it longer than anyone (from the ’60s until now). 

It will be interesting to see if Katy is a blue-head when she plays herself (not animated) with the Simpson puppets in The Fight Before Christmas set to air on Dec. 5th. What do you think?
