Lucy Hale (“Pretty Little Liars”) and Debby Ryan (“Jessie”) have the same hair stylist! Lucy and Debby hit the hair salon together this week, and had a long overdo catchup session, after which Lucy Tweeted the following to her fans:

After a long overdue catchup over hair appts …safe to say @DebbyRyan (who is now a ferocious blonde) is my spirit animal.

We love that these two got to hang out this week, and of course we love Debby’s brand new blonde locks!
