Demi Lovato goes punk rock with a new shag haircut

Demi Lovato looks more “confident” than ever.

The musician, who uses she/they pronouns, is gearing up to drop his new song, “Substance,” on July 15, and teased the track with a punk-inspired photo shoot on Instagram on Tuesday.

In the pictures, Lovato, 29, rocks a cool haircut with a red leather jacket, patched plaid skirt and skeleton print t-shirt.

Hairstylist Rena Calhoun was behind the singer’s choppy, wavy mane and curtain bangs, while makeup artist Jill Powell designed Lovato’s red cat eye and nude lip and “Euphoria” nail artist Natalie Minerva gave them a metallic chrome manicure.

A true chameleon of beauty, Lovato often changes her hairstyle; over the past few years, they’ve tried a mullet, a buzzcut, and even a bubblegum pink pixie cut.

On the same day they showed off their jet black shag, Lovato performed a music video for “Substance” on TikTok, belting out the track with a super-short ‘do.

“I thought it was Kris Jenner for a second,” one fan joked, to which the “Cool for the Summer” singer cheekily replied with the Kardashian matriarch’s catchphrase: “You get away with it. wonderful, darling.”

The ‘Camp Rock’ actor said cutting off their locks made them feel “free,” telling Ellen DeGeneres in 2021, “I feel more authentic to who I am and I also feel like I hid behind my hair.”
