We’ve all been there. Once a relationship ends, old trappings are shed, bodies are toned and a crazy haircut is the order of the day. Whether it’s a choppy new fringe or a cute pixie crop, a new barnet is often the key to the new, post-breakup you. Just look at Vanessa Paradis who admitted that the new tousled bob she got after splitting from Johnny Depp has given her ‘more energy’ and a renewed sense of self. And it looks ruddy gorgeous too!

But why stop at a statement fringe or cute cropped ‘do? When you’re Katy Perry - the rainbow-haired, colour chameleon - a breakup calls for something more radical. The songstress has recently split from John Mayer and how has she transformed her look post-split? By unveiling a new head of slime green locks, of course! Last night she showcased the striking look IRL at the Congressional Candidate Marianne Williamson event in Los Angeles - and you know what? It actually looks pretty good. We know!

Is anyone else noticing a theme? It looks like a wacky colour mix-up is Katy’s failsafe break-up plan. Take a look at Katy's happy days married to Russell Brand when she had super-glossy black locks. The moment they'd split, she hit the bottle (of hair dye) and went for a shocking blue colour. It's certainly one way of washing that man right out of your hair!
So are you tempted to take an extra step and channel Katy's heartbreak hair makeover? We think we'll just stick to a quick fringe snip, thanks.
