Riverdale's Vanessa Morgan Is the Ultimate Source of Wavy and Curly Hair Inspiration
On The CW's Riverdale, Vanessa Morgan plays Toni Topaz, the town's Pretty Poisons leader, with rose-gold highlights swirled through her long, voluminous waves. Though her costar Camila Mendes confirmed that the characters maintain a consistent look throughout the seasons (she told POPSUGAR it's what gives the show its comic-book vibe), Topaz is the exception. Her hair is often changing in color and style, making her the town's resident hair idol.
In real life, Morgan typically wears her hair long and has been seen with curly, wavy, and straight styles in various different hair colors. We've chronicled her best hair transformations ahead.
