The singer stepped out this weekend on the arm of her love John Mayer sporting two noteworthy additions: The aforementioned ring, and a new shorter cut with bangs and blunt ends — a look she debuted on her Instagram (photo below). Our first reaction was “Must be a wig;” after all, the singer changes up her look as much as Lady Gaga, and her Cleopatra character in the new video for “Dark Horse” has a similar style, so we assumed Perry was just having a little fun with her alter ego’s look.

But after seeing her in the same chop for a few days now, we’re wondering if her hair change isn’t actually permanent. She’s styled it with curls and kerchiefs, jeweled headbands and stick-straight strands, and she appears to be totally comfortable with the new do. It also works well with her new, more laid-back vibe; the whole look is very “Low Maintenance Katy,” which is why we’re intrigued to see if this style sticks.
What do you think: Is this chop for good or for fun? Do you like her with short hair? Tell us in the comments!
