She woke up like dis.

Not too long ago Demi Lovato was changing her hair as fast as she changed outfits. She was blonde, blue, pink, back to brunette, and then buzzed on the side like Skrillex. Nowadays, she’s all about the natural look and to prove it, Demi posted a no-makeup selfie to Instagram with the caption “I woke up like dis…..at 4 pm.” Yonce would be proud.
Demi Lovato' hair: before and after.

Demi Lovato has undergone a lot of hair changes in the past few months. First, she traded in her blonde hair for bright blue. Her blue 'do got its 15 seconds on the cover of Nylon, but it wasn't long until she moved on to bright pink hair for her Neon Lights Tour. Then, out of seemingly nowhere, Demi went and Skrillexed herself. She buzzed a chunk of hair above her left ear off, posted the photo to Instagram, and captioned it "Oops?"
It's safe to say when it comes to Demi and her hair, we expect the unexpected. But this new change is one we suuuriously didn't see coming. After teasing her new hair on Twitter for, like, four hours, Demi finally revealed the big news—she's back to brunette.
The Neon Lights Tour just got cray—Demi Lovato buzzed off some of her hair, y'all. Demi has always played around with her hair, from bright blue to bright pink tresses and, like, everything in between, so we're used to seeing Demi with a new 'do on a pretty frequent basis. What we weren't expecting, though, was for her next hair move to be sheering it off. And it's not just a tiny part above her ear—it's a CHUNK, and it's cut very close.
Will Demi wear this on stage?

Demi Lovato's Neon Lights Tour is right around the corner (it kicks off on February 9th), and here's what we know to expect so far: Demi's newly pink hair, neon and lights and probably a lot of neon lights, a magician, and judging from the sneak-peek picture she recently tweeted, a live-action, Renaissance-style joust with knights in full suits of plated armor. TOUCHÉ, m'lady! Actually, we're only guessing about that last part, but Demi does look ready for a battle royale (save, y'know, actual weaponry) in that chain-mail getup, amirite?

Sooo, Demi Lovato is officially our rainbow hair idol. She had presented herself as a major contender with her recent blue 'do, but just clinched the title with her Neon Lights Tour pink hue, which she debuted on Twitter. The blue hair had a good run, with appearances in her "Neon Lights" video, on a magazine cover, and throughout a season of X Factor, but we're still sad to see it go. We will, however, welcome this pink hair with open arms! Walk your way into Demi's life (and ours), bb!
At this point, Demi is such an expert at having bright hair that she (publicly) skips the initial, low-key introductory phase and heads straight to the bold lipstick and accessory stage. To be fair, though, she has dabbled with pink hair before so it's a natural for her not to hesitate and debut the look in a big way. I mean, almost-black lipstick and a porkpie hat in the first shot of your new hair? You're giving the people a lot to talk about, Demi! Namely, you're giving us serious Boy George vibes, and we like it.
Selfies were errywhere this year. Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the word of 2013, which, based on celebrity Instagram accounts, makes total sense. Celebs love taking selfies and we, as bloggers and breathing humans, love looking at said selfies. We've come to rely on them to tell us what our faves are wearing, where they are, and who they're hanging with. It isn't until you look through every Instagram of Rihanna's from the past year that you truly appreciate just how much the badgal loves sharing her face/her new hair color/her products with the rest of the world. But Ri's not the only one doing it. We've rounded up our favorite selfies from the past year so you can peep 'em and refer back when taking GPOYs of your own. Enjoy!
NICKI MINAJ: MOST SELFIES NOT FOCUSED ON HER FACE
Nicki Minaj shares her selfies with two special guests.
For most people, selfies are all about the face. Obviously, Nicki Minaj is not like most people. Her selfies tend to draw attention to the two assets that sit below eye level and could easily stay out of frame. Nicki got bolder about baring as the year went on. While she began 2013 with some heavy cleavage, by the end she was straight-up giving us full-frontal pasties. Her Halloween costume, in case you couldn't tell, was a police officer. It's been a while since we've gotten any Instagrams from her Minajesty, so we're hoping she's planning to make up for lost time in 2014.

It looks like our dreams of a blue-haired Demi Lovato on the cover of a magazine have come true! Thanks, NYLON: we should've guessed the fave magazine of ~alt girls~ everywhere would give Demi's blue tresses the attention they deserve! Demi debuted her blue 'do a full two months ago and has since graced three magazine covers, but all featured blonde Demi. Now, like an early Christmas present, a blue-haired Demi spread has been wrapped and delivered. So, while it may only be the 2nd day of December, this month is shaping up already.
The color of Demi's hair has faded since she first dyed it (even since it glowed in the "Neon Lights" video, actually). Her dark roots have also grown out, turning it into an enviable colorful ombre. It also looks like she's collecting a number of blue hued highlights around the front of her face, and, TBH, I'd start a blue highlight collection too if it would look like Demi's hair and not a Smurf hibernating on my head. Alas.

A few days ago Demi Lovato gave us a sneak peek at her glow-in-the-dark makeup in her video for "Neon Lights." As big fans of Demi Lovato and anything that glows, we were anxious to see what Demi had in store for us. The video dropped earlier this afternoon and, as expected, it's full of our fave things: leather catsuits, blue hair, and, most importantly, NEON. Let's peep all of Demi's looks so we can begin shopping for all things that look good under a black light!

A serene shot in the midst of a sweaty, dance-filled video, Demi is sans clothes and makeup in a purple pool. Her hair is so dark when wet that, for a second, we feared the blue was gone.

Demi Lovato arrived at the premiere of Disney's new animated movie, Frozen, wearing one of the year's most popular trends: hair dyed to match the color on the movie's poster. JK, she was wearing an ear cuff! Tucked away under her messy blue bun, was a gold cuff that snaked up her ear and complemented the gold tassels that adorned her black Altuzarra dress. Demi joins Jennifer Lawrence and Cara Delevingne and a grip of other PYTs in the cuff club: these accessories have spread among models, actresses, and musicians and now deserve a major role in the lives of regular peeps (perfect holiday timing, TBH).
