Demi Lovato isn't exactly a stranger to playing around with different lengths and hair colors, but she always comes back to her short, dark brunette look. (Hey, when you know what works for you, work it.) A prime example? Last October, when she went from dark and short to long and blond and then back to dark and short again—all in less than a week. Recently, she's been in the long-haired camp though, wearing extensions to the Grammys (where she had some seriously Rapunzel-length hair) and the Oscars.
But the pendulum swings both ways, and it wasn't long before she returned to the spotlight with a fresh, much-shorter cut. At the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday night, Demi stepped out with a shoulder-length lob. The layered, angled look, with gently bent ends for some cool-girl texture, wasn't too far off from what we've seen her in before.
The man behind the magic, hairstylist César Ramírez, posted a pic of her red-carpet look to Instagram.
And in this shot from Demi's Instagram, it's even easier to see the pretty twists of caramel balayage that mix in with the rest of her dark strands. All the subtle details in this cut might just make it one her best lob yet.
Plenty of celebrities are jumping on the lob trend right now—Nina Dobrev, Selena Gomez, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid have all chopped their hair in the past two months or so. But knowing Demi, we'll get a glimpse at another look not too long from now (and that's one of the many reasons why we love her).
