What Color Hair Does Cheryl Blossom Have?

Exactly What to Tell Your Colorist If You Want Cheryl Blossom's Red Hair From Riverdale

Not since Glee's Quinn Fabray or Scream Queen's Chanel Oberlin have we met a manipulative, "evil" character on the small screen that is also lovable. Then, Riverdale's Cheryl Blossom came along.

Cheryl (played by Madelaine Petsch) won us over for saying lines like "faux lesbian kissing hasn't been taboo since 1994," and for also being a beauty star. Cheryl is known for her creamy porcelain skin, pinup-girl lush lashes, and iconic red lipstick (which we shop out here). Her makeup is any retro-loving, sex-kitten-wannabe woman's GOALS!

The cherry on top — quite literally — is her stunning Princess Ariel red mermaid mane. Yes, Archie is redhead, too (and day-umn, is one sexy ginger!), but it's Cheryl hair color that has fans booking salon appointments to copy her shade. We chatted with Matrix celebrity stylist George Papanikolas on how to get and maintain this look.

"Cheryl Blossom's hair color on Riverdale is perfectly in between a medium and dark tone of red with copper/gold hues," Papanikolas said via email. "You will want to ask your colorist for a soft copper gold."

He went on: "Your colorist should use your underlaying warmth to assist in this color. These pill copper gold tones are present and are in almost everybody's hair color."

You know the rule: bring in photos of the exact shade you want, and you shall receive. According to Papanikolas, add Jessica Chastain, Isla Fisher, and Bella Thorne to your Cheryl Blossom-redhead mood board, as they all have similar colors.

"It works on these [women] because their light to medium skin tones also have cool undertones that compliment the copper in the hair," he noted. "This color is most flattering on fair skin or clients who have a few freckles as it looks the most natural on them."

So let's say you went to salon and got your hair dyed Cheryl Blossom-red (YGG!). Here's how to maintain it. "Root touch-ups and glosses are usually needed about every four to six weeks, and a color-safe shampoo like Matrix Total Results Color Obsessed Shampoo is mandatory to preserve the delicate copper tones," Papanikolas said.
