In her first appearance since breaking up with actor Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry has debuted a brand new haircut — and it’s easily her most radical style yet.
The formerly brunette pop star has chopped her peroxide blonde hair into a modern pixie cut, with an undercut.
She first unveiled her new hair on Instagram:
Then, over the weekend Perry took her breakup hairdo (i.e. “break-over”) for a spin down the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, where she also performed her new single, “Chained to the Rhythm”.
Speaking with US radio host Elvis Duran later that night, Perry said she knew she could just grow her hair back if she didn’t like it.
“Honestly, I tried to take my full head of hair platinum and I had a lot of breakage. I’ve always wanted to look like Miley Cyrus. I’ve always wanted to have that pixie haircut, so I said, ‘Let’s just go for it,’ People magazine quoted her saying.
