Coming off of bright purple locks, Katy Perry debuted a very wearable hair look on her Instagram. Her gorgeous dark hair was accentuated with pretty blonde highlights — the perfect look for summer. Read expert tips on how to copy the look below.
We love Katy’s wild style, but sometimes it’s nice to get inspiration that we can actually copy! Her summer highlights are stunning and looked gorgeous with the light pink lip she rocked in the pic she posted.

Summer Highlights — Expert Tips On What To Ask For
Kyle White, lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City (and my personal favorite) told HollywoodLife.com:
“The way for brunettes to achieve natural-looking highlights is to do thick ribbons of highlights, not finely-woven strands, and to place them further apart, not close together. Highlights that are not closely placed ensure contrast and guarantee you won’t create a solid look. The thicker swatches give a beachy, sun-kissed look because the sun doesn’t lighten hair in tiny, capellini-sized streaks. In addition, you want the highlights to fade out at the crown, leaving the underneath untouched, in the same way that the sun only hits the top of your head and doesn’t lighten the depths of your hair.”
He added: “I personally don’t mind a little dark root. On the right girl it can look cool. I would like to add that I do not share this opinion for grey roots.”
