Shay Mitchell’s Best Hair Looks Of All Time

Shay Mitchell‘s days on Pretty Little Liars may be coming to a close soon, but her ever-changing beauty looks are keeping her in the spotlight—especially her hairstyles. She’s always been one to experiment, whether through intricate ‘dos, wigs or fringe, and the proof is in the photos that Shay can pull off literally any style. Here, some of our favorite looks we’ve seen her rock.


Rapunzel-Length Rope Braid

While out in New York for fashion week, Shay brought one of her fiercest hair looks yet. This ultra-long braid fell past her waist and was weaved into a rope.


Faux Lob

Shay shocked us all when we thought she chopped off inches of her hair into an asymmetrical lob. It turns out this is actually a wig, but the real cut would look amazing on her.

Wet Look

She hopped on the bandwagon with one of last year's biggest hair trends: wet strands. Shay looks way chicer than we ever would post-shower.


Bombshell Waves

Shay's voluminous waves are the epitome of Old Hollywood glam. As one of her go-to looks, this is the perfect inspiration for a night out.

Pierced Braid

The actress is also to thank for the popularity of pierced braids. The moment she stepped out in this style, it suddenly appeared all over social media.


Blonde Tones

Another wig moment happened when Shay stepped out in honey blonde hues. It was a great way to test the waters in case she ever wants to make the change permanent.


Wispy Bangs

Celebrities love to play with faux fringe. Shay's take on clip-in bangs gave us major '70s nostalgia.


Crimped Tresses

Many It girls have been experimenting with another throwback style: crimped hair. Shay added extra volume for a dramatic look on set.


Crown Braid

Shay took the crown braid trend to the next level with this updo. Rather than having the style wrap only halfway around her head, she wore a 360-degree version weaved into a fishtail.


Retro Curls

Shay ditched her natural California beach waves for a lot of bounce. Her long locks add even more volume to each individual spiral.


Triple Braided Ponytail

This detailed triple hybrid is not a style for everyday wear, but we hair aficionados surely appreciate it. In addition to a series of tiny rope braids up front, Shay's strands were divided into three mega ponytails in the back.


Wired Buns

Like her Pretty Little Liars costar Lucy Hale, Shay has played around with wire as a hair accessory. To re-create this look, make two adjacent buns and then twist silver wire into opposite ends of each one.


Shades Of Blue

Blonde isn't the only shade Shay has tested the waters with. While posing in this braided ponytail hybrid, we noticed vibrant streaks of blue between her brunette roots.
