If you haven’t been following Lucy Hale’s hair journey, then you might want to re-think your priorities and make some room! This Pretty Little Liars actress has been having the time of her life changing up her hairdo whenever she pleases, since the seven-season television show wrapped for good.
Her character, Aria Montgomery, had long brown locks until they were maliciously chopped off in her sleep. In reality, Lucy Hale had been trimming her hair shorter and shorter, until she was ready to commit to a chin length bob cut. Hale’s trusted hairstylist, Kristin Ess, told InStyle that this is a great method to find out whether you’re ready for a dose of the short-haired life. “It’s a serious commitment. There’s an awkward stage when you grow out a bob and if you can master that first then you can have a bob, in my opinion.” Hale was definitely a fan of her bob once she finally took the plunge, and hasn’t missed her long hair—she’s been maintaining her chic haircut ever since! The actress recently posted a picture to Instagram, where she showcasedher dark colored bob cut while wearing a pair of adorable holiday PJ’s.
Lucy Hale’s Blonde Hairstyles
Since Aria Montgomery’s character on Pretty Little Liars had dark brown hairstyles throughout all seven seasons, Lucy Hale decided to switch it up once she was no longer bound to her character’s look. “There have been so many colors Lucy has wanted over the years I’ve known her, but she just couldn’t do them because of continuity. She’s a free bird now! The world is her hair-color oyster,” Kristin Ess told Allure.
Hale has gone slightly blonde in the past, but lightened her locks even more around Halloween. Debuting her lighter hair color at the PLL wrap party in late October, Lucy Hale shared her vampy look on Instagram. Wearing a high-waisted two-piece suit with a bralette top, Hale opted for the gothic makeup trend featuring a bold lip for this red carpet look.
Her blonde hair didn’t last long, as she gradually drifted back to brown before she went completely back to black. Taking to Instagram once more to showcase her new hair, Hale calls this hair color “her true self.” Her haircut is a little shorter and more choppy at the bottom, giving this classic beauty an edgy look that we can’t get enough of.
Although we love this look on Lucy Hale, we don’t anticipate that it’ll last very long before being replaced by her next 2016 hairstyle. We’re loving every moment of this fashionista’s hair journey, and can’t wait to see what her next look is!
