Katy Perry: Her Best Hair?

When you’re only 26 and already the first artist in history to spend a whole year, 52 consecutive weeks, with songs in the top 10 of the Billboard Top 100, the future looks bright.


Must be all that good California livin’ that Katy Perry (born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson on October 25, 1984) was able to soak up from such a young age. Born in Santa Barbara, California, and raised by pastor parents who introduced her early to gospel music through the family ministry, Katy was regularly singing in church by the age of 15. She quickly got the attention of rock veterans from Nashville, Tennessee, who brought her there to polish her writing skills and teach her how to play guitar.

Her first album, Katy Hudson (2001), was made up of Christian gospel music, but by then the 17-year-old was already moving away from her religious roots.


“It was a gradual thing, not like a super ‘OK, done with that, next!’ kind of thing,” recalls Perry. “I changed a lot between the ages of 15 to 23, and the things that I thought when I was 15 and 16 didn’t make sense when I was 21 and 22, just because my perspective had changed. I’d seen more of the world. I’d lived more life and met more different types of people.

“When I started out in my gospel music my perspective then was a bit enclosed and very strict, and everything I had in my life at that time was very church-related. I didn’t know there was another world that existed beyond that. So when I left home and saw all of that, it was like, ‘Omigosh, I fell down the rabbit hole and there’s this whole Alice in Wonderland right there!'”

I wonder… Does that make her husband Russell Brand the Cheshire Cat? 🙂

    Don’t forget her pink hair! :p I think she looks pretty good in red actually, and the pink is…cool I guess lol, but I LOVE her in black hair. She’s one of the few white people I can say looks good in dyed black hair. 🙂 most people it looks weird lol. I pick #5, I loved that look when she had it. #2 looks great to, and she also does look really good with red hair.

  2. Karo says:

    I like number 5!

    I dislike the short, blunt bangs on her – I think she looks very pretty with longer or side-swept bangs.

    I wish I could choose two. Then I’d pick #3 and #7, but I went with #3 because of the bangs.

    I didn’t see her and Russell Brand getting together because he’s such a goofball and she’s so down to earth.

  5. Nivedita says:

    I like both 5 and 8. I have the same hairstyle as her’s in photo 5 and my hair is naturally black and wavy 🙂

    2 or 6. I picked 6 though because she looks so pretty with her more natural color (at least, I think so.) Her eyes just pop!
