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

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
