Demi Lovato goes blonde and punk with a bold new hair look, and we’re so here for it. As we all know, Demi Lovato has had quite the year that started with an engagement and ended in a breakup. And while breakups are extremely difficult, there’s nothing like some self-care and a good haircut that can boost your mood. Following her recent split with fiance Max Ehrich, Demi went for an entirely new look by going for an ombré blonde and an undercut. “I did a thing,” captioned Lovato in the first of a series of Instagram shares, each showcasing her newly cut hair. Executed by stylist Amber Maynard Bolt, Lovato’s cut and color offered a punkish style.
The overall effect was striking, and fans and friends alike praised the shift in the comment section. “LOVING THIS NEW ERA ALREADY,” wrote Angelo Kritikos, who photographed the moment. Other celebrity friends like Ashley Graham commented a series of heart-eye emojis, while Ruby Rose wrote, “Yes you did!!!!” Kerry Washington commented, “Gorge,” Gabrielle Union wrote, “So good!” and Lucy Hale commented, “Ohhhhh my God.” Same. The photoshoot offered a closer look at her brand new dramatic haircut. The new color is a multi-tonal golden blonde with her roots left dark to blend seamlessly into the buzzed undercut.
Up until this transformation, Lovato wore her hair just past her shoulder in a dark brown, almost black color. This new look is extra bold because she just wore extra long hair while hosting the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday night. She was wearing wigs and extensions galore and it was gorgeous. After walking the red carpet with waist-length, deep brown lengths, as People reports, she revealed a major switch-up when stepping onstage, debuting super glossy, platinum blonde waves. Demi Lovato just proves how she can rock any look.
