Shay Mitchell is known for a lot of things. Her seven-year reign on Pretty Little Liars, her super-relatable presence on Snapchat, and her ability to pull off a smoky eye like no other. But blonde hair? Eh, not so much. That is, until now.
Yesterday, Mitchell’s hairstylist, Chris Appleton, shared a gorg Instagram selfie of the star — who is very much known for her long, luscious raven-hued hair — with fresh, sun-kissed golden balayage highlights styled in loose waves. “LOVE a good GLAM wave #shaymitchell #chrisappletonhair #balayage @patrickta,” Appleton captioned the photo. It hasn’t even been a full 24 hours since the snapshot was uploaded, and the double-taps are already flying in.
While we’ll be the first to admit how much we love the summertime shade on the PLL star, we’re slightly hesitant to call this look the real deal. Last July, Mitchell pulled a fast one on literally everyone on the Internet (even we fell for the faux mane change!) with a seriously convincing blonde wig at the iHeart MuchMusic Video Awards in Canada. And these new highlights, well, they look eerily similar.
Blonde, brunette, or otherwise, Mitchell just proved she can virtually pull off any hair hue under the sun — and take a damn good selfie doing it.
