Lucy Hale in Blonde Water Waves Was Not on My November Bingo Card

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.

“The day called for vintage Celine & blonde wigs,” Hale wrote in the caption, so we know it's not a dye job. But that hasn't stopped fans from complimenting her new — albeit temporary — look.

“You can wear every hair color 🫶🏻🫶🏻,” one follower commented, while another wrote, “You look like a fairytale princess. So incredible 🥹🥹.”

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Hale looks gorgeous as a blonde. She's played around with golden looks before, like this one with shadow roots back in 2019.

So needless to say, if this wig has her itching to go lighter again with actual bleach, she can be sure she'll look phenomenal.
