Demi Lovato's Latest Rockstar Haircut Is a Shag

Demi Lovato has a rockstar haircut to mark their new artistic era. Ahead of the release of their eighth album, "Holy Fvck," later this summer, the singer debuted a shag haircut in a selfie shared to Instagram Stories on June 23. Lovato tagged their glam team, consisting of Amber Maynard Bolt, Anthony Holguin, Cj Romero, Cesar Deleon Ramirez, and Jill Powell.

In the past year, the shag has seen a resurgence since its original popularity in the 1980s. The cut typically consists of a shoulder-length style with textured layers and curtain bangs. Lovato's haircut fits that description to a tee. Prior to the shag, Lovato was rocking more of a mullet, which was seen as she performed her new single, "Skin of My Teeth," on "The Tonight Show."

Lovato began the year with a buzz cut and wrote on Instagram at the time "#freshstart." Before that, they had a pixie cut and shared their goal to shave their head in a Glamour interview in March 2021. Lovato expressed using hair to signal their evolving gender identity. They said, "I'm following my healers' timeline, and I'm using this time to really study and educate myself on my journey and what I'm preparing to do."
