Stylin’ with Katy Perry

Feb 18, 2013

By: George Caroll

Colorful Katy Perry makes all her fans want to “play dress-up” and that includes some wild hair choices! Katy is the diva of style, glitz, and glamour. The I Kissed a Girl pop star is synonymous with her 1950s pin up girl hairstyles, complete with finger waves, rolled under bangs, classic bobs and over the top colorful hair styles. Her pop star image is irresistible to guys attracted to the fun loving creative types.

TO GET THE LOOK: Do you sometimes feel like a wallflower? Are you ready for a totally new high impact image to turn this picture around? If that's the case, take a styling lesson from Katy Perry and reinvent yourself with a totally new image. Her provocative head-turning colorful hairdos are worthy of paparazzi-like attention and let everyone know you’re the life of the party. However Katy’s hair color selection isn't for the faint of heart but if you’re up for it, let’s take it one step at a time; starting with Katy’s chic classic bobbed style cut.

LET’S SHAPE IT: To get the look, start with a off the shoulder length bob and versatile brow brushing bangs. This classic bob is the ideal length for adding extra length with "hair extensions" and suits most face shapes, especially those with facial features like Katy. With a few adjustments (trims), as it grows you can find the ideal length for your face shape and style.

LET’S STYLE IT: To put your style in motion start with a dab of your favorite styling mousse or spray gel for style support. Comb either through damp hair and give it a quick blow dry. To push the style bar up a notch, a few twists with a curling iron adds finger waves for a dressy look. Finish with a dab of hair polish and you’ve got Katy Perry’s chic look!

NOW, LET’S COLOR IT: Like a chameleon Katy loves playing with hair color having rocked every color of the rainbow on her head, including purple, blue, green, lavender, red and purple locks. To change her hair color Katy uses HAIR FLAIRS - COLOR RUB, a temporary hair color that adds vibrancy color without a commitment of permanent dyes. Hair Flair works like eye shadow and is available in ten different hair chalking shades making it fun to match your hair to your outfit. With Color Rub you can change your hair color instantly, whether you want vibrant tips, streaks or all over color, just rub it on and wash it out after. You’re only limited by your imagination and how daring you feel.

KATY PERRY’S STYLE comes with all the bells and whistles to put you in the spot light. The versatile peek-a-boo bangs and rain blow hair color is worthy of paparazzi-like attention. So be prepared to stop those dudes dead in their tracks when you show of to the party and your girl friends to scream OMG….. You rock girl! For more star style visit

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
