Last week, Jaime King debuted a look similar to Katy Perry's bright blue locks. But as it turns out, the blue-eyed actress wasn't copying the "California Gurls" singer's hairstyle.

"I did it because I've been doing Hart of Dixie for nine months and my character Lemon is very much her own person," King told Us Weekly at the  Saint Vintage and Stand Up To Cancer's Love Tour in West Hollywood Thursday.  "I felt like it would be fun for me to just do something different just to get back to myself a little bit."

The 32-year-old star's hair is quite the rock-n-roll shift from the delicate, light pink locks we've spotted on January Jones, Pink and Ashley Tisdale recently. In fact, King gave Us a cue as to which Hollywood starlet could be showing up with the look next.

"Emma Roberts texted me at like nine o'clock in the morning and was like, 'Oh my god, your hair's blue! Who did it?'" King told Us.
