Katy Perry is known for her wild, outlandish hair colors, but she’s toned it down of late, and looked perfectly appropriate wearing this sultry raven hue at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. The color has shine and dimension, and the cut is great, too. A long, modern bob with soft and gentle layers promotes the illusion of extra thickness and volume while the clean lines and soft shape help to show off the health of her hair. The side-swept bangs showcase simple classic style and it’s a great way to elongate the features of the face, just like it’s done for Katy. For tips on styling a similar look, click style notes.
