Ashley Benson Hair How To On Pretty Little Liars

Ashley Benson Hair How To On Pretty Little Liars

Ashley Benson plays the sassy, sexy beautiful blonde Hanna Marin on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars.  Not only is Ashley's version of Hanna outspoken, smart, sultry and just downright gorgeous, she's so much fun you just want to have coffee with her.

Ashley is also the only blonde of the four Pretty Little Liars.  The other three are all brunettes which makes the beautiful actress stand out even more.  Never mind her bubbly and fun-filled persona.

Talking Hair Extensions With Her Boyfriend

On a recent episode Hanna was trying to get the undivided attention of her on-again, off-again boyfriend Caleb Rivers (Tyler Blackburn) and asked him what his opinion was about human hair versus synthetic hair extensions.  It was a hilarious moment in a well-written interchange between the very cute couple.

When Hanna brought up hair extensions Caleb snapped back to attention.  A brilliant way to redirect his attention wouldn't you say?

Hanna also called out her dad for hanging around the house with her mom, his ex-wife, and pointed out that he was still in love with his ex-wife.  Unfortunately Hanna's dad took the easy way out and split.  Hanna wasn't surprised because she has a very uncanny way of reading people.

Ashley Benson's Long Lush Hair How To

Ashley's base hair color is a gorgeous light honey blonde completely interwoven with spectacular low lights in a rich caramel and highlights which are a white blonde appropriate on a tow headed beach baby.

Does Ashley have highlights and lowlights or is her gorgeous hair color palette the result of perfectly selected hair extensions?

Regardless of how she got the great hair color, this young flaxen haired beauty offsets her stunning blonde hues with flawless make-up.  She plays up her beautiful eyes, lips and skin.

Although she has been photographed with her below-the-shoulder length tresses bone straight, she tends to have lots of very loose waves which fall strategically mid-cheek and shoulder length before cascading down into the hint of a loose curl at the ends.

Her hair appears to be medium in thickness and either straight or just slightly wavy in textures.

Ashley's hair is precision cut with slight layers enhance the loose curls and waves patterns throughout her head which accounts for the beautiful profile her hair appears to naturally falls into.

When she and the other Little Liars are dressing up for a stroll down the fashion runways or at a party she tends to wear her hair with more volume, movement and full of bouncy curls cascading from a messy off-center part. This gives her hair the look of lush texture.

Ashley has a combination of an oval and heart shaped face which looks great with her long lush slightly waved hairstyle.  The length of her hair balances out her traditional heart shaped chin.

Step By Step Instructions On How To Copy Ashley Benson's Hairstyle

Although Ashley doesn't wear a traditional fringe, has side swept panels of hair extending over the sides of her forehead from the center part.  It softens her heart shape and gives her a very sultry look.  It also plays up those stunning eyes.

Follow the steps below to copy Ashley's beautiful long and lush hairstyle:


Start by detangling hair with fingers or a wide tooth comb to remove knots, snarls and tangle. If hair is fragile it might be advisable to pre-oil the hair with a light jojoba oil or apply it just to dry or crunchy ends.


Wash hair in lukewarm water with the shampoo product designed for your hair type, texture and condition. If you wish, utilize your unique washing program ranging from full shampoo to Diluted Shampoo (DS), low poo, Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash), no poo or water only.

Note: If you have chemically colored hair like Ashley's it would be best to use either a highly diluted moisturizing shampoo, do a conditioning only wash (CO Wash) or use a product line specifically designed to preserve  this type of hair.

Rinse out shampoo (if used) and then apply a rinse out conditioner from the tops of the ears down to the ends and detangle with a wide tooth comb or fingers. Rinse well and then finish with a cool or cold water rinse. Towel blot (don't rub) to remove excess moisture. If the hair is washed with a Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash) then detangle at the end of the cleansing cycle.


Apply your designed styling cocktail to your hair working it through with fingers or a wide tooth comb. Your idea cocktail to re-create Ashley's hair might consist of, but not be limited to, leave-in conditioner, defristant, styling mousse and a volumizing spray for roots to get that lush look Ashley showcases. Since chemically colored hair is dry and fragile, be sure to use moisturizing products.


Separate hair into 8-10 individual sections. Use a long finger diffuser working through individual sections at a time and allowing the strands to rest in the basin of the diffuser. After each section is dry, roll into a spiral or ringlet curl with your fingers and pin against your scalp to set.

To get lots of volume throughout the crown area you may prefer to separate hair into 1-2" sections and blow dry with a 100% boar bristle round brush.  Once each section is dry then roll around fingers into a big barrel curl pinned against the scalp.


Unpin all sections of dry hair. Touch up any uneven sections with a curling iron. Bend over at the waist and gently shake out curls. Arrange with fingers.

Apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands. Avoid pulling any curl clumps apart with fingers or else frizz will form. Do not brush.
