New era, new hair — at least that’s the approach of Katy Perry, who just went to the salon for a dramatic change after reportedly breaking up with actor Orlando Bloom. Perry has been a blonde ever since shooting the single art for “Chained to the Rhythm” — the first taste of her upcoming follow-up to 2013’s Prism. Well, now Katy Perry has cut her hair and has a real pixie cut. It’s inspired by none other than Michelle Williams, as Perry revealed on Snapchat, where she documented the whole process. Though, looking at her new cut, which features buzzed sides and a longer top, Miley Cyrus might be the first celebrity who comes to mind.
“This is my first snap, and guess what I’m going to do? I’m going to cut off all my hair. That’s right,” Perry told her Snapchat followers while in the seat of hairstylist Chris McMillan. “That’s redefined beauty, right, Chris?” she says as he trims her sides down to nearly an inch long.
When the new Katy Perry is unveiled, the pop star looks nearly unrecognizable. She turns to McMillan and asks for his opinion. “I love it,” he says. “I’ve been wanting to do this since the day I met you. You remember?”
“I remember,” Perry says. “I wasn’t ready.”
She’s ready now, apparently! With her fifth studio album on the way and a freed-up relationship status, it seems like the perfect time for Perry to switch things up stylistically. “Guys, I love it. I feel very free,” she says, showing off the sides of her sleek pixie cut. “Now, there’s other more important things going on in the world. Tune in to that.” Oh, we definitely will.
