Throughout the first season of Riverdale, the whole town goes through a lot of changes. From the shifting revelations about Jason Blossom’s death, to the different relationships that emerge between characters, nothing stays the same for too long. Recently I too went through a major change: I started parting my hair on the side.
While this may not sound as significant as moving from New York to a small town or having to live in a closet in the school, if there’s one thing we can learn from Riverdale, it’s that you shouldn’t minimize the importance of having a signature style. Whether it’s Betty’s ponytail, Veronica’s pearls or Jughead’s beanie, these looks help establish the characters.
I probably could have continued with my hair separated right down the middle for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, the sun had other plans and thought it’d be fun to burn my scalp. I guess, for the time being I have no other option but to embrace it and hope for the best. Maybe this is fate and I’m destined to rock a side part as my own signature look, but I’m hoping I can go back to center-parting real soon.
