Janel Parrish and her Favorite Summer Trends

Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish, 23, made a stunning appearance at the 2012 Young Hollywood Awards. In their 14th year, the Young Hollywood Awards honored the best and brightest of the entertainment industry’s rising stars. Often referred to as the “Oscars of young Hollywood,” the event acts as a breeding ground for emerging actors, directors and entertainers. Parrish was wearing a sexy black Love and Lemons dress, bright orange Shoemint shoes and a cute Tacori necklace.

Celebrity stylist Glenn Nutley was responsible for her beautiful hairstyle that evening, a braid that was wrapped around her head, for which he mainly used Kerastase products. Parrish tells RCT reporter, Carly Steel, that Nutley simply used extensions, braided three pieces and twisted them up. “I would just say experiment,” says Parrish. “If you see something in a magazine cut it out and go for it.”

Parrish usually prefers light olive colors, a little bit of green and brown for her eye makeup, she tells RCT, but for the glamorous event Nutley used silver Chanel eye shadow and black eyeliner. Her favorite summer trend is “lots of colorful accessories, bright lips and feather earrings”.
