Katy Perry Gets The Hair Accessory Trend All Wrong

Hair accessories are big right now. Just look at Lupita Nyong'o at the Oscars. Her Fred Leighton diamond hairband got more attention than her custom-made Prada gown.

However, the problem is they have the potential to make a girl look at least 10 years younger than she really is. And not in a good way.

Need proof? Here's Katy Perry wearing a velvet bow in her hair at the launch of her Prismatic tour in Australia.


We can see where she was going with this look - perhaps Perry hoped the bow would blend in with her hair colour for a "subtle" statement.

Instead, it looked far too preppy paired with her blunt crop and unlike Lupita's hairband choice, this wasn't effortless or understated.

A sleek hairstyle like Katy's doesn't need any adornment - especially when you already look great in a bright red lipstick and a sheer white dress.
