Believe it or not, we actually haven't seen Katy Perry in this hair color before! In the past, the star has sported just about every hue of the spectrum (sometimes all at once) and yesterday, the star completed the rainbow connection with her neon red hue. The unconventional shade had an equally-unconventional beauty muse behind it---according to her Instagram, Perry looked to Animal from the Muppets for inspiration, and we can't decide who has the wilder ’do!

Back in the spring, the singer tried out slime green hair, and after a brief stint in her trademark noir hue, we're guessing that her bold streak caught up with her, which makes sense as she's been shifting shades since she was 15. "My natural hair color is squirrel-y brown," she previously told InStyle. "I tried bleaching it like Madonna’s, but that was awful, so I thought, where can I go from here? Clearly, I like extremes." Old habits die hard, as the saying goes, and we wouldn't expect anything less from Perry!
