Celebrity Get the Look: Pretty Little Liars Shay Mitchell Summer To Fall Transition Hairstyle

Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell was the gorgoues muse for Nick Stenson, Creative Director for the jcp salon and Matrix. The expert stylist created an amazing 2-in-1 style to transition from summer to fall we just had to share.

Nick showed us how he created a "some hair up, some down" unique look using a fishtail braid that wraps around the back of the head using one side of the hair. Here's how to get the pretty little look, step-by-step:

Step1 - To prep the hair, use the Biolage Blow-In Control ($13). "This product is amazing for giving the hair flexible hold and and beautiful shine throughout the styling process," Nick told us. 

Step 2 - Nick also used Biolage Soothing Shine Milk ($20) before blow-drying Shay's hair. "What is amazing about this product is the fact that it is a protein base. It is really going to seal down the look all the way to the hair cuticle," the expert explained.

"This will also add a lot of shine and it will easily blow-dry into the hair so there will be no slip or fly a ways." 

Step 3 - For the fishtail braid, a lot of people think it is really hard, but Nick told us it is actually very simple.

"You take two sections, a little from the outside drop it to the in, a little from the outside drop it in and you just keep the two sides like this. And you just keep the two sections separated," the stylist demonstrated.

Step 4 - "Pin the braid on the top and the bottom to secure its placement as you wrap around the back of the head."

Step 5 - Finally, pin the hair from the opposite side to meet braid, pin the hair to continue the side ponytail look. "This is where you create the 2-in-1 look where you can have it pulled up on one side, while allowing it to be down on the other," Nick said.

Step 6 - To finish the look, curl the ends with a curling iron and apply Biolage Style Freeze-Fix to seal the look and you are done!
