Lucy Hale Goes Blond, Reveals New 'Alter Ego'

Talk about blond ambition!

We all know Lucy Hale to be a raven-haired beauty, but it looks like the "Pretty Little Liars" star is embracing her blonder side.

The 26-year-old actress and singer took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal her freshly-dyed blond locks, coloured by celeb hairstylist (and Lucy-fave), Kristen Ess.

"I dye," Hale captioned the pic. "Thank you @kristin_ess for temporarily making me the blonde alter ego I've always wanted to be."

Lucy's hair features shades of light brown and caramel with lighter blond balayage throughout, and styled in a textured, messy 'do.

However, it looks as though this new look is only temporary, as Hale will have to switch back to brunette when filming the new season of PLL.

"She gets these short breaks, and that's when we get to play with her look... She doesn't get to keep it, because, as we all know, Aria is a brunette babe through and through," Ess tells Refinery29.

Enjoy it while you can, Lucy!
