Demi Lovato Brunette Hair X Factor

So much for that promise!

After telling Kelly Ripa that she wasn’t planning to change her blonde hair, Demi Lovato debuted a new brunette ‘do on Wednesday night’s first X Factor live show. The singer kept her bangs, which she cut this summer, and wore her hair straight and down.

“It’s coming to fall and it’s harder to maintain a healthy skin tone, and when you’re going into winter it just sucks out the color of everyone,” Lovato told reporters after Thursday night’s X Factor. “So I tend to go dark during the holidays; it’s a nice contrast. There’s one thing about being blonde and pale, but I would rather be dark and pale.”

Lovato, a natural brunette, has tried a lot of looks in the past 12 months, from pink hair and blue tips to blonde locks and a bright-red ‘do.

“She’s a chameleon — she can do anything with her hair and makeup,” her makeup artist, Jill Powell, recently told PEOPLE. “She likes to change her look a lot — it’s fantastic. She embraces new trends.”

Lovato’s new look comes as a bit of a surprise — but one we’re definitely loving. Tell us: Do you prefer Lovato as a brunette or a blonde?

I like Demi’s hair no matter what it looks like who cares if she keeps changing it. There’s always a sense of surprise with Demi that’s why she can pull of changing her hair color all the time

Brit on

I like her better as a brunette.

Eli on

The brunette is so much more flattering on her.

Samantha on

The cut is not flattering to her very round face. I think the dramatic darker color really washes her out. She looks really pale. It’s just a really “off” look for me for Demi. Not loving it.

Trish on

What’s up with that shirt? The outfit is what’s wrong with her look, not the hair.

GuesT on

What a non talent human being.

abby on

She looks better this way & more natural. Britney, on the other hand, is not aging well.

Janet on

I like Demi as a brunette – she doesn’t look like that other dim-witted blonde sitting at the judges table.

rebecca on

The colors she’s done are really huge, and you can sort of never tell whether she’ll change again. But honestly, I like her as a brunette.
