Pretty Little Liars' Lucy Hale Is Blonde Now, And Wow

Lucy Hale is known to many TV viewers as Aria Montgomery, one of several standout characters from Freeform’s drama Pretty Little Liars, which ran for seven seasons. The actress has since taken part in multiple projects, such as heading up Riverdale's Katy Keene spinoff, and she has now debuted a brand new hairstyle that is far away from her signature brunette look.

The Pretty Little Liars alum has taken a trip to the blonde side and posted her new, shorter look on her social media. She not only gave her stylists credit by tagging them, but also indicated that she got it in London, which is where she'll presumably be located for the foreseeable future while filming her new series, the thriller Ragdoll. While Lucy Hale has changed up her hair color over the years bouncing between varying brunette shades, this is seemingly the first time in a while that she’s gone fully blonde, and she is rocking it!

Last month it was announced that Lucy Hale would be starring in Ragdoll, a new series from AMC set in the UK. The deadly thriller, based on the novel of the same name by Daniel Cole, is about a killer who murders six people then dismembers them and sews them together into the shape of a “grotesque body,” dubbed Ragdoll. Hale will portray new recruit DC Lake Edmunds who will be helping on the case. Although it’s technically unclear whether this change in hair color is for her new role, it’s still a great and noteworthy change for her either way.

In Lucy Hale’s 2020 movie, Fantasy Island, the actress was sporting blonde locks for the film that were similar to her updated 'do. A few weeks ago, Hale posted a blonde update to her Instagram marking what was only just the beginning of her new look. Now that she’s full-fledged blonde and has shorter hair than usual, it could indicate that this is a new chapter in her life, or that it’s for her upcoming project, or both. The different styles that Hale has gone through over the years proves that she can rock any color.

Last year, Lucy Hale starred in The CW’s Riverdale spin-off, Katy Keene, as the show’s titular character. The series only lasted a single season before the network decided to cancel it, surprising the cast and fans everywhere. However, Hale recently reprised her role of Katy Keene in an episode of Riverdale for a short scene where her character was heard during a phone call. She didn't actually appear fully in person, which was disappointing, but it still made some fans very happy and hopeful that there could be more to come from her and the rest of the Katy Keene crew. Though probably not while she's filming in the UK.

It’s always interesting whenever a celebrity goes public with a new look, whether it’s for a new project or they just felt like they needed a change in their personal lives. Especially in the last year with longterm quarantines in pace, seemingly everyone has wanted to do something different with themselves, and Lucy Hale is definitely working her decision.
