Shay Mitchell’s Best Haircuts and Styles

Shay Mitchell is famous for her role in Pretty Little Liars. Although she plays an athletic tomboy, in real life, Shay is a girly-girl at heart. You can tell by her interviews in magazines such as Teen Vogue where she confesses her love for all things beauty, fashion and fitness.

Shay shares beauty secrets to keeping her hair healthy and happy, including washing her hair once twice a week, letting it air-dry and skipping heating tools. Shay likes to keep her style simple such as slicked back ponytails, a slight curl and left down or scrunched up. Her hair is always flawless, rather it’s in a messy ponytail, a sleek braid or textured down-do, her style is inspiring. Check out some of our favorite Shay Mitchell hairstyles – including a trendy long bob.

Deep Side Part

Rather it’s straight or textured, Shay shows us that a deep side part with a subtle wave through the top layer of your hair can have a big impact. She is often seen wearing a side part that has high volume through the part. This creates body and texture through the rest of her hair and this could be your go-to hairstyle for any occasion.

Slicked Back and Straight

Versatility yet simplicity is the name of the Shay Mitchell’s hair game. She shows us that you can be sporty, flirty or down-right sleek and chic. Her slicked back straight hair with a center part looks flawless with her sharp and stylish outfits such as this all black jumpsuit.

Top-knots are a go-to option for any lady with long hair. We love how Shay shows us that a high bun can look perfect with a collared necklace and a summer dress or during the fall with a scarf and jacket.

Textured Faux Long Bob

Last year Shay faked us out with a faux-textured long bob by posting an Instagram photo that suggested the new-do was offering a new perspective. But, the pretty little liar is contractually obligated to keep her long locks and revealed that the shorter hair was fake. The faux-bob was created by braiding longer sections of her hair and then covering the braid with the rest of her hair to get the long bob illusion. Fake or not – this style is hot.

Casual Low Ponytail / Messy Bun

Shay keeps her hairstyles simple, and usually that’s the best look. She shows us that a messy low bun can look flawless when you have a simple accessory, basic sweater and a few loose strands to frame your face.

Sombre Hair Color

Shay usually wears her long lusciuos hair her natural darker hair color, but she also dabbled in dipping her hair in some lighter color. She added subtle highlights throughout the tips of her hair for a subtle ombre look also known as “sombre.” We love how it adds even more movement and texture to her already healthy and bouncy hair.
