Shay Mitchell just chopped off all her hair!

Arianna | 09 August 2016

The Pretty Little Liars actress refreshes her look for summer – and we’re inclined to follow suit. 

Pretty Little Liars actress Shay Mitchell is renowned for her long, flowing brunette locks. They were part of her signature look both on and off screen (and trust us, we’ve watched enough episodes of PLL to know!). But – and don’t be shocked – Shay’s long locks are no more: the star has braved the cut – and now she’s sporting an uber stylish lob! It seems she’s followed the footsteps of her colleague (and loyal bob-devotee) Lucy Hale. Have a peek at Shay’s new stunning hairdo below…

Shay Mitchell debuts stylish long bob

Taking to Instagram to showcase her new ‘do, Shay Mitchell posted the above picture, accompanied with the caption: “I like to start each week with a fresh perspective… so we decided to do a little chop chop and go hang with the wildlife this morning.”

In the picture, her long hair has been styled into a collarbone-grazing lob, which has been lightly tousled for a laid-back, casual look. Shay opted for a deep side part, and tucked one side of her hair behind her ears to showcase two mini hoop earrings and fabulously oversized sunglasses – the perfect refresher look for summer, if you ask us!

As well as sporting both long and short hair, Shay’s also gone blonde in the past (thanks to the help of a trusty wig). Don’t get us wrong, while we do kind of miss Shay’s ultra long, princess-inspired locks, we’re embracing the fact that change is good. And we have to admit: it does look a little bit more modern and a lot more awesome this way. To Shay’s summer-perfect hair!
