Shay Mitchell Reveals Her Scary Beauty Disaster
So much OW.
We’ve had some pretty shocking beauty fails over the years (we'll never forget the streaky luminous orange tan we rocked at a wedding last summer. YES THAT HAPPENED), but it turns out Shay Mitchell has beaten us all in the battle of the beauty disasters.
The Pretty Little Liars actress has made us never want to style our hair into poker straight perfection ever again with her beauty horror story, admitting that homemade straightening irons were behind her mishap.
She told PeopleStyle: “When I was about 12 years old, my best friend and I tried to straighten my hair with a clothing iron. I was like, ‘Wow, let’s really get it straight,’ but I didn’t have all the fancy straightening irons that I have now, so I went and used a good ol’ clothing iron.
“I told her to press harder because she wasn’t getting it straight enough. Suddenly there was this horrible smell. It was my burnt hair that was half on the iron in a knot! I was traumatized. After that, I’m crazy about what I do to my hair.”
AGH, the thought alone is making our toes curl and our eyes water.
Luckily, Shay has now found a much less heat-intensive way to keep giving us those hair goals, explaining: "I like to use a lot of coconut oil, and let it just sit overnight. When I come out of the shower, I put my hair in a braid sometimes and I just let it air dry."
We're off to stock up on coconut oil, then. You?
