Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell had a big secret when she hit Sunday’s iHeart Radio MuchMusic Video Awards red carpet in a plunging black slip dress — and brand-new golden highlights! But appears Mitchell’s lighter locks are, in fact, very faux and just temporary.

“Trying to figure out if blondes really do have more fun…” she wrote on Instagram. To create the ambitiously blonde look, the star’s hairstylist Chris Appleton brought in a wig to do the heavy lifting and sealed in the color with Uberliss Bond Treatment, before creating bombshell waves for his client. (It appears her experiment was successful: She looked like she had a blast at the event.)

Singer Lana Del Rey did the opposite, going dark after a few weeks with honey-colored hair.

The singer hit the salon for a total shade 180, going from blonde to brunette without stopping on the way at her signature red. Perhaps the mane change is in preparation for her upcoming performance in the Lollapalooza Music Festival (she’s the headliner, after all!), as she previously told Maxim she thinks her dark hair gives her more industry cred.

“When I went darker with my hair, I don’t know why, but people took my music more seriously,” she told the mag in 2014.

And lastly, famously-redheadhed Bella Thorne just amped up her natural color like whoa with a fun placement of pink and red highlights, dip-dyed on the end of her strands.

The red and pink hues, (a.k.a. “apricot infused with arctic rose” according to the star’s colorist Rona O’Connor), was decided on after Thorne crowd-sourced her fans about how she should update her hair for summer. “Hmmmm what color am I doing today ???? Ahhhhh,” she asked fans on Instagram Sunday morning.

Red AND pink bitches!!! Thank you to my babies for bringing this to life !!

Hours later, the actress, 18, showed off her bright and ombre dip-dyed do with the caption: “Red AND pink bitches!!! Thank you to my babies for bringing this to life !!”

Here’s hoping the rest of the star’s summer is just as colorful.
