Lucy Hale’s Hair Was Styled With an Earring at the Critics’ Choice Awards — See Photos
During Sunday’s 25th Critics’ Choice Awards, celebrities stunned on the red carpet with beautiful beauty looks, offering some early hair and makeup inspiration for the year. One star in particular impressed fans with her simple yet unique hair accessory — Lucy Hale.
Hale took to the red carpet with her black bob pinned back with something completely unexpected: an earring. Well, sort of. Let me explain.
Kristin Ess, a hairstylist who happens to be a favorite around Allure, was responsible for the chic yet innovative hairstyle.
While Ess has her own successful line of hair accessories, she decided to improvise by hot-gluing a pearl from an earring to a safety pin to clip back Hale’s hair. She took to her Instagram to share both the look and her inspiration with her followers, adding the caption: “Girl with the pearl earring-turned-into-a-hair-accessory. Love this look maybe more than any other look ever on you.” We can’t help but agree.
Ess’s Instagram post also includes a photo of Hale in a sparkly blue Miu Miu dress. If you look closely you can see she’s wearing a subtle smoky eye with a hint of mint green, courtesy of makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan.
If you’re feeling inspired by Hale’s look from the night, it’s actually a pretty easy look to achieve on your own — all you need is an oversized pearl (which you can find on Amazon for less than $10), a safety pin, and a hot glue gun. Bam! You just DIYed your way to red-carpet-approved hair.
