Ashley Benson is a total hair chameleon. She goes from blonde to brunette (and back again!) quite often. She loves experimenting with extensions, and she’s not afraid to get a dramatic chop. So we never really know how the actress will style her mane on the red carpet.
At Sunday’s Pretty Little Liars PaleyFest event, Benson returned to her classic shoulder-length blonde waves, and of course we were dying to ask all about her look. Spoiler: It’s not natural.
“Well it was really short yesterday. I had to cut it for this photo shoot that I did and then Pretty Little Liars called me and were really mad at me so I had to put extensions in last night,” she told PEOPLE. “It’s been literally like six weeks of hair stuff. I was brunette two weeks ago for another film that I did — it’s a mess, but now I’m blonde and long. Kind of.”
She did say that her current style will have to stick around for a while to avoid any further damage to her tresses. “I cannot change my hair or else it will fall out.”
What do you think of Benson’s hair? Do you like her longer blonde waves? Or is she better short?
