Lucy Hale's Crown Braid Is a Thing of Envy

Pretty Little Liars may have won big for Best Cable TV Drama last night at the People's Choice Awards, but it wasn't the shiny new award that we had our eyes on—it was Lucy Hale's crown braid. With her allover goth-Victorian look, from her chic lace-up black dress to her vampy plum pout, we thought the messy braid was the perfect way to tie the whole look together. 

Hairstylist Kristin Ess worked her magic on the actress by focusing the braid at the crown and continuing into the back of the head. Given that the rain was in full effect at the show, Ess cheekily explained her method for keeping the look intact despite the weather: "Pin and pray." Noted.
