The back and sides of this short sassy 'do are tapered into the head, blending into the longer top layers that are swept to the side for shape and style. The front is flipped over and off the forehead to soften the face and completes the over-all look brilliantly. Product is needed to keep this style in place and regular trims is needed every 4-6 weeks.
Katy Perry is looking chic and trendy here in a short hairstyle. This short 'do is perfect for her oval face shape as it shows off her strong cheekbones and large facial features. Her eyes are especially complimented by this shortâ€™ do and her side swept bangs focus the attention on her visage. The end result is a chic, modern and sophisticated look for Katy that is a departure from her usual raven black Old Hollywood-style locks.
Katy is a natural dark ash blonde with blue eyes and a cool complexion. Here, she goes for a natural looking dark brown base with a platinum blonde top for a dramatic contrast. This gives her an overall cool tone with a hint of warmth in the front that flatters her skin tone and brings out her eyes while creating dimension and interest to her cut. An edgy cut like this always looks best in bright and bold colors.
Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, known professionally as 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.

To blow-dry your bangs you will need to take your brush and firstly make sure the section is no wider than the diameter of the brush. Next, place your brush on top of your head and under your section. Using your blow-dryer on a medium setting, blow-dry your hair from the roots, slowly working your way to the ends. Make sure to keep the blow-dryer in front of the brush at all times. Continue this step until the bangs are completely dry.
7. Style Bangs Up and to the Right Using Wax
Apply a small amount of wax to your fingers, then starting at your roots, apply the wax as you drag your hair in an upwards, to the right, motion.
Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.
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.
