Ashley Benson has gone back to the dark side! But this time her look isn’t quite as permanent.

Ashley may portray girly Hanna Marin on Pretty Little Liars, but in real life, her fashion sense couldn’t be more different than her scripted counterpart.

“Black,” Ashley tweeted with an Instagram pic of her new look — black lipstick! Whoa! Hanna Marin wouldn’t be caught dead in that look. In fact, the only time Hanna wears black is to attend one of Rosewood’s many funerals. Ashley, on the other hand, likes ripped jeans, Converse, and black t-shirts.

This isn’t the first time Ashley has gone over to the dark side. Back in February 2013, Ashley dyed her hair brown during the promotional tour of her provocative flick, Spring Breakers. But less than two weeks later, she dyed it back to her natural blond color to start filming Pretty Little Liars (Hanna would never go dark!).

Ashley dyed her hair again in July, opting for light brown highlights. Hanna’s hair may be slightly darker when Pretty Little Liars picks up Season 4 in the winter, but she won’t be rocking black lipstick anytime soon. (We’d sooner believe Hanna was “A”!)

What do you think of the darker look, Pretty Little Liars fans? Do you think Ashley can rock this look? Sound off in the comments!
