How does she do it? Time and time again we see Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell step out in front of the red carpet cameras in flawless summer style, and we think we might have hit on her essential ingredient... gorgeous, long wavy locks!
Want to copy this summer siren? Here are Shay's top 5 hair moments for the holiday season...
The beach waves
The timeless beach-perfect hairdo has to be those choppy, surf-ready waves, and Shay has this style down to perfection! The actress attended the Children Mending Heart's Fundraiser on June 14 in a floor length all-white summer dress and these gentle waves, coupled with a pink lip shade and a natural coat of mascara.
The top knot
Whatever the outfit, team your look with a tousled topknot this summer and you have instantly hit on the perfect no-fuss hair trend of the season! The 28-year-old star stepped out at the BCBG Max Azria Spring/Summer 2015 Collection show in New York City on September 4 in a black and white ensemble; eye-popping, voluminous lashes, a nude lip shade and this high updo to complete the look.
The wet look
For the ultimate way of both giving your hair that pool-side shine and a good dose of TLC, the wet look is definitely a sultry summer style to try! Run a generous amount of nourishing argan-based oil through your hair with your fingers before combing into place for this smooth style. Shay turned the look into an evening showstopper at the GQ Men of the Year Party on December 4, 2014 teaming the style with high-drama lashes and smoky kohl underliner.
The tousled braid
For that summer boho chic look, the tousled braid is a definitely a style staple! Sweeping her thick, dark locks over into a deep side part, Shay Mitchell chose a gorgeously highlighted and choppy braid for the 2014 Teen Choice Awards on August 10 in Los Angeles, and teamed it with a killer oxblood lip shade.
The number one rule of Shay Mitchell's summer-style formula? Keep it simple! If she isn't just keeping her hair loose in gentle waves, the actress likes to sport a gorgeously voluminous ponytail! At the Vanity Fair and FIAT celebration of Young Hollywood on February 17, Shay gave her ponytail a romantic softness by letting the front sections curl around her face, while pinning the top back for a high-volume shape.
