Katy Perry's New Choppy Bob Hairstyle
When celebrities go shorter, it's exciting. Now a major pop star is working the short hair trend that shows that short can definitely be sweet. Katy Perry debuted a brand new look, featuring chin-length, choppy layers and a pastel blonde color.
Katy Perry's always been a beauty icon, refusing to follow the footsteps of Barbie-blonde haired peers. This time, she stands out from the crowd by opting for a bob-like shape haircut coupled with softly angled lines. Her layers follow the shape of the head perfectly before ending in soft, choppy ends. A little graduation underneath the nape rounds hair out in back.
Before copying Katy Perry's new bob hairstyle, talk to your stylist about how can it be suited to flatter your facial shape. For instance, if you have a longer face, try taking the hair a bit longer to balance out the length; for a wide jawline consider going a bit longer than chin-length, whilst a square face shape will look best with more layers around the front to frame and soften features.
When styling Katy Perry's look, the key is to keep it quite natural, without over-styling it. After washing, spritz on a generous amount of blow-dry lotion to prevent damage. Use a round brush to blow-dry some volume into the roots and then run through with a flat iron. Finish off with shine spray. The overall look should be soft and natural, not weighed down with too much styling product.
