We Can't Stop Talking About Demi Lovato's 'X Factor' Look

Demi Lovato X Factor

There have been many buzz-worthy moments on the X Factor so far, but we’ve been slightly distracted by something else: Demi Lovato‘s gorgeous hair and makeup on the show. The girl looks flawless (suppose it helps that she’s 20 and has fabulous skin), and we really can’t stop staring.

So what’s her secret? Aside from that awesome complexion, it’s her hair and makeup team: Johnny Stuntz and Jill Powell.

“I pick out what I want to wear — makeup, nail polish,” Lovato recently told PEOPLE. But Stuntz and Powell provide that extra oomph.

“She has great personal style, and we just draw on that,” Stuntz tells PEOPLE. “She just really represents what a 20-year-old girl is like right now. She’s just really young and hip.”

Powell agrees. “She’s a chameleon — she can do anything with her hair and makeup,” she adds.

To get Lovato’s complexion really glowing, Powell usually starts with a bit of concealer and a BB cream, “or a really hydrating foundation to keep her skin aglow,” she says. There’s also a lot of experimentation, especially with her lip colors. “She likes to change her look a lot — it’s fantastic,” Powell shares. “She embraces new trends, so oftentimes I’ll show her something and she’ll be like, ‘Oh my god I love it,’ and then we try it.”

See Britney Spears's New Multicolored Mane

She’s gone blonde, brunette, even bald, but this is something we’ve never seen on Britney Spears before.

The pop star debuted teal, blue and hot pink tips over the weekend at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. And Spears must have been happy with how her My Little Pony-inspired mane came out because she decided to stick with the look, wearing it out in Calabasas, Calif., on Monday.

We’re used to seeing this kind of bold ‘do from her X Factor co-judge Demi Lovato, but Spears has been playing it relatively safe with her strands since joining the show, sticking with her signature blonde color.

So, we’re a little surprised to see the singer sport such a funky hairstyle. That said, we have to give Spears props for trying something fresh (and having the style sense to rock her Technicolor mane with a simple LBD).

Lovato would surely love Spears’s new locks. But with rumors once again swirling that Simon Cowell demanded Spears overhaul her wardrobe, we do have to wonder what the tough critic would say about this new look. Tell us: What do you think of Spears’s bright hair?

Britney Spears's Latest 'X Factor' Look: Daisy Dukes, Sequins ... and Zebra Print?

What goes up, must come down — at least that’s the case for Britney Spears‘s X Factor style.

Though our love for the pop icon will never wither, we can’t seem to figure out what’s going in the wardrobe department over at her upcoming FOX show.

Style-wise, the judge started the season strong, showing off her toned bod in a skin-tight, hot-pink Brian Lichtenberg mini, followed by a step in a high-fashion direction: an Alaïa fit-and-flare frock.

And earlier this week, Spears continued her cute streak in on-trend neon-pink skinnies offset with a cream blazer and a smokey eye (left). But then, the star took a total step back. She was spotted at the Miami auditions Thursday (right) in leather-like Bleulab Daisy Dukes, a Studio 54-esque sparkly Joe’s tank and a zebra-print cosmetic bag (we assume that wasn’t part of the outfit, but worth noting nonetheless). A plus? Her hair looked great.

Demi Lovato Tries a Questionable New 'Do

Now that’s how you turn heads! Demi Lovato sported a debatable hairstyle at X Factor‘s Greensboro, North Carolina auditions over the weekend.

The young star’s retro-inspired half-up, half-down look deserved a double-take, but not necessarily for the right reasons. While we loved Lovato’s pink-dipped tips, this new look is perhaps just a bit too statement-making.

The judge also went dramatic with her makeup — including winged eyeliner — which was jarring teamed with such a high-impact ‘do.

Though we’re not crazy about her styling, we love the rocker-chic outfit. The neon lace dress teamed with a tough leather jacket (similar to her first audition look) is edgy and fun — just the way we like to see the 19-year-old. Tell us: Do you like Lovato’s hairstyle?

Pink hair is here to stay! Demi Lovato became the latest star to try the trend, debuting freshly dyed bright-pink tips at the X Factor San Francisco auditions over the weekend.

The pop star is one of several famous fashionistas to try the dip-dye trend; recently, Lauren Conrad and Nicole Richie worked the partially-pink hairstyle, too.

Lovato isn’t the only fan of the funky hue, however — her fellow judge (and tough critic!) Simon Cowell also likes the new ‘do.

“Yay!! Simon approves of my pink hair!! #SFactor,” the singer Tweeted along with a snapshot of her, Cowell and Britney Spears backstage at the auditions.

Between Lovato’s ever-changing technicolor tresses (she just went blonde a few weeks ago) and Spears’s upgraded fashion-game, the ladies of X Factor know how to keep us interested in the style department. We can’t wait to tune in and see what the duo does next. Tell us: Would you try dip-dyed pink hair?
