For the past few months, Katy Perry’s locks have been on hiatus. Normally a hair chameleon, she’s been sporting the same brunette locks most of the summer.

For the new cover of French magazine L’Officiel, however, she changed things up big time – showing off a set of longer locks dyed a very seasonal orange. What’s behind the look? We went to Katy’s go-to tress expert, celebrity hairstylist Rita Hazan, to find out.

The simple answer: that hair most likely ain’t Katy’s.

“Katy loves playing with color,” Hazan tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “In this case, she’s probably wearing a wig. It looks great on her!”

“She can rock any color she wants and she’s smart because she changes her makeup with every color so it’s always an entirely new look.”

We can’t wait to see what Katy’s ‘do does next!
