Katy Perry is not only known as an iconic pop star but is also famous for her drastic changing hairstyles and colors. She managed to sport almost every style, cut and hues that you can imagine. Her natural hair color as she quote is dishwater squirrel brown which she finds boring. She thinks it did not suit her that’s why she has been experimenting with different colors since she was 15. She enjoyed playing with statement hair accessories too. She’s the queen of transformation. She switched her hair not just every year but sometimes you can see her changing it in a matter of days.
The pop superstar, born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, got her big break when she signed to Capitol Records in 2007. In just over a year, she rose to fame through her single “I Kissed a Girl”. The track ranked at No. 1 for seven weeks on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was then followed with another single “Hot n Cold” and peaked at No. 3.
This global star has been unstoppable since then. She dominated the charts and received numerous awards. ‘Billboard’ dubbed her the “Woman of the Year”. Katy has also created several “Guinness World Records” – “Best Start on the US Digital Chart by a Female”, “Biggest Selling Digital Artist (US)”, “Most Viewed Music Channel on Youtube (female)”, “Most Twitter Followers”, “Largest TV Audience for a Super Bowl half-time performance”, “Most Just Dance Appearances by one artist”, two records for the “Highest Annual Earnings by a Female Musician (in 2015 and 2018), and “First Female to have Five No. 1 Singles from one Album (US)”. It was her “Teenage Dream” album that sets her the record in the 61-year history of Billboard Hot 100 making her tie with the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
