Aria's Pink Highlights Returned To 'Pretty Little Liars' So Get The Look (Temporarily) For Yourself
Pretty Little Liars Season 6 "Summer of Answers" premiered last night and had me feeling all the feels (spoilers ahead, folks!). Spoby and Ezria reunited and swoons could be heard around the world, viewers were introduced to an extremely disheveled Sarah Harvey, and A reinstated Aria's pink highlights. Do not misunderstand me; A is a sadistic monster whom I won't forgive for the nightmare he put the Liars through, but I just cannot be mad at Charles for Aria’s fantastic makeover. In fact, I kind of love him for it.
Rewind past the Charles is A “reveal,” before we thought Toby betrayed Spencer and was actually a member of the A-team, before there even was an “A” and all Aria was concerned with was moving back to the states to reconnect with the three best friends anyone could have and getting over the fact that her father had an affair with one of his students.
Aria rocked hot pink highlights when the show first aired in June 2010. She was the alternative, artsy chick who wore some funky outfits and hooked up with the hottie professor in a bar’s bathroom. Pink hair wasn’t exactly “in” but it wasn’t exactly “out” either.
Pink hair has been a thing this season, many thanks to Coachella-goers, and it doesn’t really matter how you wear it, just that you do. Whether you go all-out like Julianne Hough's cotton candy do, reverse ombre it up like Stephanie Beatriz or take after Aria and dye a few strands for just the right pop of pink, this hairstyle is a beauty bandwagon you'll want to get on.
Ugh, perfection. If I hadn't become a blonde a few weeks ago, chopping off my locks and incorporating some pink highlights could very well have happened. I'll cross my fingers that pink hair will still be trending by fall. If not, I'll channel my inner Lucy Hale and bring it back.
For those of you looking for your next hairstyle, I encourage you to take advantage of this funky do. Check out three ways you can get Aria Montgomery pink highlights, from totally temporary to permanently pink.
