The actress made the decision to chop her hair shortly after Pretty Little Liars wrapped in 2017. In an interview with Shape magazine, she says she's never been tempted to go back to her old hairstyle.
"I know it sounds silly, but the first time I chopped my hair, it was liberating because my hair was a safety blanket in a way," she says. "I felt more beautiful with long hair. But by cutting it, I felt like I stepped into my own."
Lucy also opens up about her fitness routine, saying she recently committed to regular strength training and pilates sessions.
"I like to feel like a badass and to know that I could kick someone's ass. So I do pull-ups and do squats with the big-boy weights. I even flipped one of those big tires once. And I just discovered pilates," she says.
"My butt has never been higher, and my abs have never been stronger. Our bodies are so amazing and resilient, and we don't give them enough credit."
She also shares that she spent much of her teen years and early 20s not loving her body and not being good to it and now she's trying to make up for that because "we get only one body. We have to take care of our temple".
