Has Demi Lovato gone back to her trusty bob again?

Has the queen of bobs ditched her extensions or is it all a clever Instagram trick? We investigated...  

Singer Demi Lovato has graced the beauty world with a number of hair transformations over the years (think blue hair, blonde hair and purple hair!).

Yet more recently, she’s been sporting gorgeously long hair extensions as part of her 2016 Honda Civic tour, alongside fellow ex-Disney star, Nick Jonas. 

That’s why it came as such a huge shock to us when we logged into Instagram and saw a picture of the artist with what appeared to be a much shorter ‘do! But the question is, did Demi actually go for the chop? We did some digging to find out…

Short hair, don’t care: Demi’s bob haircut

Demi posted the above picture on her social media account last night, where it looks like she’s swapped the long hair extensions for a short, choppy bob. So has she finally decided to join the ranks of other celebrities who’ve recently opted for the chop (like Kaley Cuoco and Shay Mitchell) and jumped back onto the bob bandwagon?

However, all is not what it seems. Demi accompanied her Insta-pic with the caption: “BTS of a cover shoot yesterday… ps. My hair is behind my shoulders.. It’s still long I swear! Haha”. Well, we guess she wasn’t quite ready to give up her long locks just yet! Credit: @ddlovato

It may have all been a rouse this time, but the singer has sported her fair share of bobs in the past, usually styling it wavy and with a deep side part. And if you ask us, we can’t wait ’til she’s back to the bob for good. Long live the Queen of the bob! Credit: @ddlovato

Editor’s tip: Bobs call for relaxed waves, so add texture to straight strands by scrunching a sea salt spray like the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray through your ends.

It’s basically beach hair in a bottle, so you’ll have the mermaid hair of your dreams without it looking too done or like you’ve tried too hard.
