We've always been fans of Lucy Hale's hair, whether it's long and ombré or a short, choppy bob—but recently, she took our affection for her pretty locks to an entirely new level with an unexpected hue change. Keep scrolling to see the transformation!
Hairstylist Kristin Ess is responsible for the golden brond color, but sadly, as much as we absolutely love the lighter shade on Hale, it isn't here to stay. Ess tells Refinery29, "Lucy is in between filming her new movie, Dude, and going back to [Pretty Little Liars]. She gets these short breaks, and that's when we get to play with her look. She doesn't get to keep it, because, as we all know, [her character] Aria is a brunette babe through and through." Fair enough, though we wouldn't mind a script change that warrants a blonder Aria.
Thinking of going lighter? Try Strivectin Hair Color Vibrancy Booster ($27) to moisturize dyed strands and help color look its brightest.
