Ashley Benson is one of the most exciting (and gorgeous) new starlets in Hollywood right now. With the Winter Premiere of Pretty Little Liars Season 2 set for January 2, 2012, all eyes are on her and her PLL castmates.

So it seems like odd timing for a drastic haircut, right? Nevertheless, Ashley showed up to her 22nd birthday party in Las Vegas with a cute shoulder-length bob, complete with the beachy waves she’s known for.

Our first thought was: does this mean Hanna (Ashley’s PLL character) will be getting a haircut too? Why?! But then we realized that she’s already wrapped on the Season 2 finale, so the chop has nothing to do with her on-camera persona.
