Katy Perry is in the process of changing her hair color, but for the time being, the pop star is rocking a transitional hue.

On June 16, Perry told her fans about her plans to alter the color of her locks. “Tonight I dye my hair a different color… Can you guess which color?!” she wrote on Twitter. However, things didn't exactly turn out the way she wanted.

The next day, Perry tweeted, “So I didn’t get to the exact color I wanted from being black for so long. 2get to goal I have 2b GINGER for 3WKS. #paybackfromGINGERGodsFML!” She added, “If I don’t wait 3wks, I’ll end up w/no hair or a #pixie90scutw/abarretteinthefront It’s okay, I’ll get to my secret color(s) soon! #patience.”

A new photo on PEOPLE shows the outcome of the "#epicfail" dye job, a light auburn color, which she flaunted at the pool in Miami on Tuesday. While Perry is being secretive about her intended shade, it's likely that she's going back to blonde, judging by the lightening process she's enduring.

Perry has sported a variety of wigs during her career, including the royal blue hairpiece she wore on her 'California Gurls' single cover, and the lilac wig she sported in the video for the single.
