'PLL' Star Janel Parrish Got A Haircut & You've Never Seen Her Like This Before — PHOTO

The mysterious and beautiful Mona from PLL has been known for her long, dark locks (when she's not being forced to wear a blonde wig) but all of that’s about to change. Well, at least in real life. Janel Parrish just debuted shorter hair, and the cut could be more trendy or perfect for the warmer months.

The lob cut and side-swept bangs couldn’t look better on her, although, I was a fan of her long hair, too. Somehow, she always managed to keep the same style from ever getting boring. She was a pro at mixing it up with updos, parting her hair different ways, etc. But, knowing that only gets me excited for how she’ll style this chop all spring and summer long. Summer #hairgoals much? Umm, you bet!

This isn’t the first time she’s said goodbye to that long hair of hers, though. And this short style is nothing she can’t pull off. It’s got just enough sass to suit Mona, which is something Parrish takes into consideration, I’m sure. At least, I’d like to think so.

See Parrish’s fresh cut along with nine times she’s expertly demonstrated how to keep your hair looking as good as new, with or without actually cutting your hair. The secret’s in the styling, although, if her new ‘do is any indication — a long bob cut works wonders for your look, too. So, when it doubt, lob it out!

This haircut was clearly a good move.

Going with side bangs and keeping her hair over her shoulders is a go-to for her, but mainly because it just looks so good.

Leaving slightly curled pieces down in the front adds such an effortless feeling to an updo, and Parrish just gets it.

7. Side-Swept

Shorter locks thrown over the shoulder is always a good look.
