Before anyone freaks out, let's just put it out there—YES! Katy Perry's fabulous purple lob at the 2015 Grammys was a wig. She later swapped that for a sleek brunette ponytail to perform. 

With that being said, isn't that something beautiful and magical about hair and about being a hairdresser? Perry started her night with one hair color and length and ended with another. We think that's amazing!

But if you're trying to recreate the purple lob, we've got a few pointers for you from PRAVANA Global Creative Advisor Sherri Jessee.



STEP 1: "For pure tone results, apply to pre-lightened hair level 10," Jessee says.

STEP 2: Mix PRAVANA ChromaSilk Vivids Luscious Lavender and a few drops of PRAVANA ChromaSilk Neon Blue and Neon Pink. "You can test it out on a paper towel until you achieve the shade you desire," Jessee says. 



STEP 1: Prep damp hair with a small amount of PRAVANA Nevo Full Volume Volumizing Mousse. Rough-dry.

STEP 2: Use a flatiron to create waves in a random pattern. 

STEP 3: Comb through with a wide-tooth comb and finish with PRAVANA Nevo Super Shape Hairspray.
