Demi Lovato’s Great Attitude and Great Hair


cannot tell a lie, I initially recorded the first episode of the X Factor for Britney Spears. While I am an avid lover and defender of Dance Moms, I’ve never been a huge reality TV fan and I have certainly never seen an episode of the X Factor. But after committing to the first few episodes, I found myself falling in love (and visibly tearing up at least three times). The heavily contrived contestant back stories get me every time and I love how subtly betchy Britney is being (You’re really off key, it’s just…not sung on key), but what I really love about the show is how adorably bubbly and cute Love is Louder supporter Demi Lovato is. When she hugged the girl that had been bullied, I was crying harder than the girl that had been bullied, and if you saw the girl that had been bullied crying than you know I was making a scene.

Demi’s Disney days were a little after my time so I was unfamiliar with this dip-dyed cutie and her emotional past. While I will always love Britney, she’s been pretty boring beside the occasional quirky quip. Demi has been dynamic and engaging, and has a pretty powerful sense of self for a 19-year-old. I’m guessing it was her large fan base of young girls (and possibly me) that helped boost the recent Twitter trending topic, #Awww Demi.

I had always assumed the dip dyed look was reserved for the likes of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj until I saw how totally adorable Demi looked with this ponytail on the X Factor pilot. I did a post about hair chalking a while back, but if you’re looking to get a little more hardcore with your hair color, than dip dying is probably for you.

I scoured the Interweb for the best ‘how-to’ video and discovered this magical one by Free People. Even if you don’t want to get all psychedelic with her hair, at least the video is fun to watch!
