Shay Mitchell can officially do no wrong on the red carpet! The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ star rocked the edgiest look of the night by adding a braid underneath her top knot hairstyle that was accessorized with tiny hoops. Get the details, ahead.
Shay Mitchell, 29, is absolutely flawless! For the 2016 Teen Choice Awards, the actress rocked a gold mini dress with a killer beauty combo. Sporting an exaggerated burgundy smokey eye, long lashes and glossy nude lip for her makeup, Shay’s hair was styled into the coolest top knot we’ve ever seen. Twisted high above the crown of her head, Shay’s hair underneath was accented with tiny hoops that totally stole the show.
Before the red carpet, Shay shared how she prepped for the TCAs by sharing her workout on Snapchat and some behind-the-scenes fun with her glam squad, hairstylist Chris Appleton and makeup artist Patrick Ta.
Chris explained the exact hair look to us: “I was inspired by Shay’s dress and wanted to bring some of the gold into her hair. I decided the hair needed to be sexy and soft, so I went for a textured top knot.”
“To create the look I used Ouai Soft Mousse on wet hair then blow-dried with Harry Josh Pro Dryer and used the Harry Josh Round Brush to create volume.” Chris continued: “After I took a two inch wide section at the nape of her head and braided up to the crown. Then I took the rest of the hair into a ponytail and back combed for more volume. After I twisted the hair into a top knot I used Oribe Superfine Hair Spray to hold. To finish I used a small comb or my favorite is to use a tooth brush to pull out all the baby hairs.”
Shay’s latest look comes after a summer full of hair color and style experiments. Known for her long, dark locks, earlier in the summer Shay switched things up with a very convincing bronde wig at the iHeartRadio MMVAs.
Proving to be just the beginning of her temporary transformations, Shay later changed her color up again during a photo shoot for Smashbox Cosmetics where she sported strawberry blonde and pastel pink wigs. Showing off several of her looks on Instagram, Shay also tried out blunt bangs and had Chris style her hair into all kinds of intricate braids.
