Description

Katy Perry has always been one to flaunt extreme hairstyles and clothes, so it’s no surprise she made an appearance in this article. Here, her hairstyle isn't that extreme, in fact her haircut is fabulous! But, her ultraviolet locks really steal the show. Rather than go for a soft lilac or dark purple, Katy is wearing an electric violet shade that almost glows! This is one extreme hairstyle that many women will try to copy, because overall Katy has a cool and confident look going on. What do you think of Katy’s purple hair hue?

Katy stunned onlookers at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards with her purple locks dressed in loose waves to achieve movement and bounce. The shape of this style is perfect to frame a long face and needs product to tame fly-away hair.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Your Hair Off

Dryoff

Using your blow-dryer, dry your hair using your fingers, separating the hair and allowing it to dry at the roots first then the mid lengths and then the ends. Making sure the roots are dry first will ensure that your hairstyle does not fall flat.

3. Use a Large Curling Iron

A large curling iron is used to create large soft curls and can be used to add body.

4. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

Midsidecurlingiron

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.

5. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

6. Apply Hairspray

Hairsprayfinishing

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.
