Ashley Benson: 'I Cannot Change My Hair or Else It Will Fall Out'

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?

One thing the Pretty Little Liars star is sure of, stylewise: any look is better when she puts her own stamp on it. “I think in life I’m pretty casual,” she shares. “I’m 24 now and I think I’ve come into my own. I work with basic pieces and make them my own. Like right now, I’m wearing skinny jeans and a tee, but I’ve added a vest and studded boots. It’s wearing everyday pieces that everyone has and adding accessories to make them my own. When I’m at events or on the show or on the carpet, I love a great dress and heels, but every day, I live in jeans.” Read More

Ashley Benson Goes Brunette!

Perhaps Ashley Benson was tired of being the only blonde on the Spring Breakers press tour. Because the young star recently ditched her golden California-girl hair, debuting a dark brown shade Tuesday night while out to dinner in L.A.

We’ve always known Benson as a blonde, whether it’s in this most recent movie role or on her hit show Pretty Little Liars, so it’s a bit of a shock to see her go so dark so quickly.

There’s no denying, though, that the color certainly suits her and complements her flawless fair complexion and dark brows well. But we’ll save our final verdict on Benson’s new shade for after we see a picture of the actress with her hair down.

Tell us: What do you think of Benson as a brunette?

Shay Mitchell Can't Pick Just One Thing She Loves About Fashion Week

Feb/11/2013 at 03:00 PM ET

During a runway show, many front-row fashionistas are busy Instagramming, bragging about being at the show on Twitter or just wondering how the models can wear those heels all day without flinching. Shay Mitchell, on the other hand, is totally focused, absorbing the entire experience.

“I love seeing how they put the entire shows together,” Mitchell told PEOPLE at the DKNY show on Sunday from her front row seat next to PEOPLE StyleWatch’s editor Susan Kaufman. “Not just the clothes, but I love seeing what they do with the models’ makeup, and the nails!” She reveals that she even logs onto Pinterest post-show to get an even better look at the details.

And the Pretty Little Liars star is especially in awe of the designers who make fashion week such an amazing event, citing Donna Karan and Diane von Furstenberg as especially inspirational. “Their presence is so powerful,” she said. “When they [walk the] runway [to close their show], you know they are a force to be reckoned with.”

Mitchell, who told PEOPLE she “loves to get dressed up,” decided to ditch her preferred dresses and “switch it up a little bit” in honor of NYFW. For the DKNY show, she slipped into an off-the-runway printed skirt topped off with a leather jacket for a “pretty punk look.” She then did a quick change for DVF, taking a risk in pink tuxedo pants and a girly lipstick shade, noting, “I’m wearing a similar pink lip color as the models, so I fit right in!”

Mark your calendars to pick up the September issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch to find out more about Mitchell’s experience at Fashion Week, and in the meantime check out her Instagram. Tell us: What do you think of Mitchell’s NYFW style?
