Demi Lovato chats up fellow 'X Factor' judge L.A. Reid (Brian Dowling/FOX)Demi Lovato has returned to her "Camp Rock" roots!
When "The X Factor" judge took the stage Wednesday for the first live show of the season, she debuted a brand new brunette hairdo. The 20-year-old, who had previously been blond, showed off new chocolate brown locks, which were styled straight. The look reminded us of old school Lovato — back when she was Mitchie Torres in "Camp Rock."

"I just feel like myself again," she said, then started reminiscing about her Disney days. "[My hairstyle] reminds me of being 15 again — when I was doing 'Camp Rock.' I don't know how long I'll keep [bangs], but for the meantime it just makes me feel like myself."
Lovato has been a hair chameleon this year and talked us through all of the hairstyles she's sported — from the dip-dye look (she's tried pink, blue, and green) to a do-it-herself color job. (Yes, the TV star put on rubber gloves and colored her own hair.) So why has she been changing her look so much lately? "When I was younger, I never experimented with hairstyles," she told omg!. "Now I'm finally getting confident to experiment … and just trying new things."
Well, this new thing reminds us of an old thing — the "Camp Rock" era — and we love it. Wonder what the Jonas Brothers think!
