For Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards, Perry opted for a blue and purple-streaked high ponytail.
"Her new color is what I call purple velvet," colorist Rita Hazan told InStyle.com of Perry's latest look. "It's dark and rich. It's very punk rock. I love creating colors for her because she always knows how to rock it!"
