Well, Keegan Allen (Toby) is back to short hair after a brief foray into longer tresses in order to grow out his hair for Locks of Love. Check out the Pretty Little Liars actor’s new look, and his sweet words about the experience!

“#locksoflove - for you mom Donate your hair if you can. Thank you to my abc family family for being so supportive. And thank you Kim Ferry. <3 really like the new cut. Shot this self portrait set. Before and after. Might be in the photobook ;) #film #ilfordhp5 #leicam6,” Keegan captioned the photo series he posted on Instagram of his look before and after the cut. It’s kind of fun to see Keegan back to Season 1 era Toby, but let’s face it: Pretty Eyes can pull off just about any look.

Keegan has kept us updated with every step in this process. A few months ago, he shared a Vine, sharing with the Internet his plans to donate his longer hair to the non-profit charity that accepts money and hair in support of their mission to make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to a medical condition.

It’s pretty cool that ABC Family and Pretty Little Liars went along with it. Although, it’s pretty hard to say no to a project designed to help ill children. Generally, shows are picky about their actors’ hairstyles — sometimes, even putting hair-related clauses in their contracts. Keegan’s co-star Ashley Benson (Hanna) has gotten into trouble with Pretty Little Liars before for changing up her hairstyle. Though, to be fair, it’s a lot easier to explain away longer tresses on a character who jets off to London for episodes on end than it is to explain Hanna’s hair getting shorter overnight. Hanna should take more mysterious trips outside of Rosewood a la Toby, and Ashley will be all set!
