She might claim to occasionally pass up on the hair washing in her new song, but in truth, Demi Lovato loves switching up her look from time to time — and not always just to attract the attention of some guy! The X Factor star has once again stepped out with a new ‘do, returning to a cheery blonde look just in time for summer.
Demi Lovato is constantly changing up her hair, so it really should have come as little surprise when the celeb showed up at a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration event without the dark hair we’ve recently grown accustomed to seeing. In addition to dying her locks a lighter color, Demi also went for a shorter look, showing off a sleek, shoulder-length bob with side-swept bangs.
Although Demi Lovato’s hair received the majority of the attention at the substance abuse function, the celebrity did offer up some great sentiments on the topic of mental health. She explained that her ultimate goal was to, “tell young people who are asking themselves those questions, uncertain of what lies ahead, that they are not alone.”
As a reward for her work on the mental health front, Demi was honored by the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. The Secretary later expressed a second message of gratitude via Twitter: “Thank you @ddlovato for sharing your story, being a leader on bringing mental health out of the shadows .”
