Do blondes have more fun? (If you ask me, no, not really.) Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale is trying to discover the answer to the age old question by giving platinum blonde a go. Hairdresser to the stars Kristin Ess posted a photo of her handiwork on Instagram with the caption, “Going blonder by the minute with @lucyhale.” Lucy is a girl after my own heart, trying out a bunch of different hair looks. She’s impulsively chopped off her hair and has tried a variety of colors on her bobbed locks, including dark brunette, ombré and balayage (which I am saving my pennies to try myself).
Lucy, 26, is trying out this look just for fun, not for a role. Her hairdresser Kristin told US Weekly, “It wasn’t for any particular reason other than [the fact that] she has a little downtime between shooting her new movie, Dude, and going back to PLL. That’s when she gets to do fun things, [albeit] only temporarily.”
Could there be more behind the new shade? Well, she might just be ensuring that when she’s recognized, she’s recognized as Lucy Hale and not another singer/actress. During an appearance on The Talk earlier this week, Lucy told a story about being being confused for Selena Gomez. “During the time she started dating Justin Bieber, they would try to take my phone to see if I was texting Justin Bieber. And I’m like, ‘I’ll try to take a picture with you to make your dreams come true if you think I’m Selena, but I am not.’” (I don’t see the resemblance, but maybe that’s just me.)
As far as her new look I like the color on the ends, but I’m not crazy about the visible roots. And I should be, because I am rocking them now (not for fashion, but for a lack of funds). Lucy recently posted a photo on Instagram where her hair was a darker blonde that really looks great (perfect for a brunette-to-blonde hair makeover). Of course, she’ll be back to her darker locks soon, so she might as well enjoy being a blonde bombshell.
