Katy Perry's new green hair (@katyperry)
Katy Perry is no stranger to the world of zany hair colours, but when she unveiled her new green hue on Instagram yesterday, even us beauty ladies were slightly taken aback. Having dabbled with blonde, pink and even blue streaks after splitting with ex-husband Russell Brand, there’s no denying that the 29-year-old songstress is a true colour chameleon, although this is a very punk, slime green hue we’re talking about here. Alas, we’re saying ‘slime green’ not because we’re being horrible, but that’s exactly how Katy herself described the colour. Spring, slime green? Maybe Katy is onto something…

After all, our beauty radar has been on high alert over the past few weeks and has spotted the likes of Lauren Conrad and Nicole Richie opting for pretty, Easter-egg pastel shades, and even K-Stew went orange for an upcoming film role. K-Pez has been keen to jump on board the pastel bandwagon as she recently told E! news that she was planning the hair change. She said, “I’ve wanted to go slime green for a long time. It’s spring time and I think it’s time to freshen up my look.” The singer continued, “I’m really excited about slime green, but I hope my hair doesn’t fall out.”
Although K-Pez’s hair isn’t completely green, there’s still no denying this is a pretty bold beauty move. Katy’s roots and fringe are still her signature dark brown shade, making this one super-cool take on a new season ombré.
So, what do you think of Katy’s new look? Would you dabble with pastel green streaks? Colour expert Lisa Shepherd certainly thinks this trend is big news for spring: “This season it’s more about obvious pastel hair. Gone are the subtle highlights and in are full head colours and highlights. As always strawberry, bubblegum and punchy peach will be favourite shades, but expect to see more of the aqua and mint tones in the next few months!”
