It’s been a surprisingly long time since we’ve seen Lucy Hale experiment with her hair. After a few months as a redhead in 2020 followed by about half a year as a sandy bronde, she went back to brown in August 2021 and has been a brunette ever since. And we honestly don’t blame her for sticking to it — she looks absolutely stunning with a dark, rich hue. But considering that she looks amazing in any hair color, we also understand the urge to play around a bit, like she did in a new shoot.
Hale posted a carousel of beautiful photos shot by Emman Montalvan for Only Natural Diamonds, and if you didn’t know it was her, you might not believe it. In the pictures, she wears a silk and lace nightgown and — of course — diamonds, but our eyes immediately darted to her hair.
The actor is wearing a wet-look version of trendy water waves, but not on her usual brunette shade. Instead, she’s got a buttery blonde lob styled by Renato Campora — a modern take on a classic bombshell look, especially with the barely-there, glowy-complected makeup look by Jenna Kristina.
