There’s something much bigger happening here!
The actress behind Riverdale‘s Betty Cooper, Lili Reinhart, recently opened up about the significance of her character’s hair. While you might think that Betty’s signature blonde ponytail is just her go-to hairstyle, apparently it’s actually symbolic of what’s going on with her emotionally.
“Betty goes through a lot in season two, and you see it in her hair. It’s not so distracting, but it’s just a subtle little hint towards a shift in what’s going on underneath the surface.”
