There are a lot of reasons to love the teen soap dramarama of PLL, and Caleb Rivers (as played by Tyler Blackburn) is most definitely one of them. He's one half of the show's greatest 'ships, and I think we can all agree: Pretty Little Liars ' Caleb has amazing hair. It's a thing of beauty in all its forms; be it the long-haired shaggy days of Season 1, the chin-length days of Season 3, or the post-Ravenswood chop that's carried us all the way through the current Season 6 time jump era.
Caleb's definitely gone through quite the hair transformation over the course of his years on the show — as Blackburn himself told TVLine, when he first was cast on the show his hair was "down to [his] nips," and it's gotten progressively shorter — until he unveiled his brand new chop in 2014. Of the change, Blackburn explained that the haircut was in part a way of visually symbolizing his character's experience in Ravenswood, which certainly adds an interesting layer to the makeover.
That said, it doesn't really matter if Caleb's hair is long or short — because you'd be hard-pressed to find photographic evidence of him looking anything less than ridiculously fabulous. So, with all that in mind, let's treat ourselves to 13 gifs of Caleb and his hair, looking as heart-stoppingly attractive as ever.
