Katy Perry Medium Straight Bob Hairstyle - Light Blonde (Platinum)
Katy Perry looks flawless here in a chic and timeless bob. This cut is ideal for showing off her expressive facial features, especially her eyes. The grown out bangs provide her face with a nice frame while the rest of her hair maintains a smooth, sculpted shape that dusts her shoulders. The blunt ends give her locks a healthy looking appearance and keeps her hair looking thick. This ‘do has lots of movement to it and works with both casual and formal attire.
Katy looks fabulous here in a sleek, chic bob that has a gorgeous platinum-cream color to it. Her roots show her natural color while the lengths and ends are bleached to a light platinum shade with a silvery finish. Going from black to blonde hair as Katy has done often results in brassy blonde, however with regular toning jobs the hair can remain a cool platinum tone, as seen here.
Katy Perry is an American singer and songwriter. After singing in church during her childhood, she pursued a career in gospel music as a teenager.

1 . Part to the Left
Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.
2 . Use a Large Radial Brush
A large radial brush is usually used on long straight hair types or to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.
3 . Blow-dry the Back Under
To blow-dry under, start at the nape/back and place your brush under the section of hair close to the nape. With the dryer held up over the hair, pull the brush from the roots and continue to the mid length's, keeping the blow-dryer following over the top. Once you reach the ends, curve them under. Repeat this step until the section is completely dry.
4 . Blow-dry the Sides Under
To blow-dry the sides, take out a small section of hair from the front and clip the rest of the hair away. Next, place the brush under the section and then pull the brush and hair forward around your face (this curving motion creates body). Place the hair-dryer on top of the brush until you reach the ends and then turn the ends under. Repeat until dry.
5 . Blow-dry the Crown
To blow-dry the crown/top sections, take a section of hair no bigger than the diameter of the brush and blow-dry the hair placing the brush under the section of hair. With your blow-dryer in front of the brush, follow the brush in an upwards direction at the roots and an outwards position at the ends for volume and softness. Continue until the section is dry.
6 . Apply Hairspray
To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
