Camila Mendes is kissing her Veronica Lodge hairstyle goodbye — for now, at least. The 24-year-old actress recently traded in the signature look fans have come to expect from her Riverdale character for a lighter, choppier cut.
Mendes went through an intensive all-day process to get her hair back to its roots. Her colorist, Matt Rez, explained the reasoning behind the time commitment on Instagram. "Taking out layers of blue black that we have been doing for her character Veronica Lodge on Riverdale was a 6 hour process to keep the integrity of her hair," he wrote. "Taking extreme care to be gentle and using the highest grade color products is key!"
