Shay Mitchell Is Rocking A Fresh New Lob

Shay Mitchell is one of those celebrities who is infamous for her long, mermaid hair, so if you happened to catch a snap of her on Instagram rocking short hair and wondered, Is Shay Mitchell's lob real? You may be in for a surprise. According to People, the actor is sporting a seriously chic lob right now, and here's the deets on whether it's the real deal or not.

When a celebrity debuts a dramatic new hairstyle, you always have to question how real it is. I mean, Kim Kardashian's lob turned out to be a wig, celebrities are always rocking faux bangs, and Mitchell herself even rocked a blonde wig a few months ago, so you really never know, but in this case, it's totally legit. The Pretty Little Liars stars hairstylist, Chris Appleton, posted a snap of her new hair to Instagram, and if you loved her long hair, just wait until you see this.

The lob falls just to her shoulders, and she had it styled in a deep side part with loose, undone waves. It was messy and textured, but still plenty glam, and she totally works it. Here's to a totally new hair era.

Flawless. It totally highlights her bone structure and shows off her gorgeous face even more than her long hair did.

Not that it wasn't totally flawless, of course.

And she had the mermaid waves game on lock. But she has tried to fake us out with her hair before.

She wore a blonde wig back in June for the iHeart Radio MuchMusic Video Awards, so another fake out seemed totally legit.

But it looks like her lob is totally real and here to stay. I can't wait to see how she styles it!
