When it was revealed that Katy Perry would be the star of this year’s H&M Holiday campaign, we celebrated by listing her best looks through the years. Choosing was hard. Much like her number one hits, Katy Perry’s hair and makeup styles are countless.
As we are writing this, her latest look (as seen on Instagram) was a sleek black ponytail, accompanied by layers of mascara and thick eyeliner.
For the H&M Holiday campaign, Katy Perry does everything from a chic chignon to a wavy rainbow wig – a far cry from the tomboyish pixie look she debuted at the Met Gala.
”I’m always changing my look and trying new things. The pixie wig was fun. I once cut my hair that short when I was 15 or 16, and I like that androgynous look. It’s edgy, and it’s not your typical bombshell, sexy, pin-up-y look. It’s a little bit more alternative. I like to be able to play with different styles, and go from one side of the spectrum to the other. I don’t like to be just one thing, and it makes me feel like I can continue to evolve,” Perry tells H&M Life.

”When I’m off stage, I’m more business-minded. I like to wear a little bit of the same thing every day so I don’t have to sit in a chair and do hair and makeup for a couple hours each day, and I can just get on with my day because I have a lot of business to manage during the week. But when I’m on stage, I like to be a kind of larger-than-life cartoon character. I don’t believe in the statement ‘less is more’; I believe in ‘more is more!’ I like lots of hair. I like to let my skin breathe when I’m not on stage, so I wear a lot less makeup, but I always like to play up my lashes, always have mascara on, and define my brows because that kind of shapes my face.”
