15 Madelaine Petsch Red Carpet Moments We’re Still Swooning Over

Ever since nabbing a starring role in The CW’s Riverdale, we’ve been obsessed with Madelaine Petsch and her hair. The second she stepped on our TV screens as the iconic Cheryl Blossom, we were mesmerized by her signature red hair. And when we learned that was her natural hair color, we were envious, to say the least. Her scarlet strands are a canvas through which Petsch has been able to wear some of the most stunning hairstyles on the red carpet. From precise middle parts to tousled texture, Petsch looks gorgeous in any style. Her best hair moments from the red carpet are all the proof you need—take a look below!

Regency Era Updo

Petsch was the belle of the ball at the 2022 Met Gala, donning a floral yellow frock from Moschino and this elegant regency-era updo. A modern take on Bridgerton-style hair, her copper locks are the perfect blend of textured and polished with tousled strands expertly placed to frame her face.

Tight Top Knot

Sleek and stylish, Petsch’s half-up, half-down top knot hairstyle at the 39th Annual PaleyFest Los Angeles may just become our new go-to style. If only we could pull off the middle part as well as Petsch does because that really does make all the difference with this look.

Slicked-Back Boss

At the BOSS fashion show in Milan, Italy, Petsch showed in this slicked-back hairstyle looking like the boss of all bosses. She owns 51% of the red carpet.

Romantic Side Waves

There’s no style we love seeing more on Petsch than glamorous waves and curls. Case in point, these romantic side waves at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Her hair is so impossibly shiny, we must know what she uses to keep her red this vibrant.

Soft Low Bun

Petsch was pretty in pink at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Annual Academy Viewing Party. This soft low bun really pulls the whole look together and gives off serious princess energy.

Perky Pony

Ponytails are something Petsch pulls off so well. She constantly plays with the placement and styling, ensuring she has a little bit of fun with this look. Just look at those soft curls and that high pony from the 2019 GLSEN Respect Awards. We’ve never seen a more perfect pony.

Sleek Low Pony

Not only can she pull off the high ponytail, but Petsch also looks stunning in low ponytails. Can we take a moment to appreciate the perfection in her parting as well? There is not a single hair out of place.

Fresh From the Beach

Petsch took beach waves to a whole new level at the Entertainment Weekly Comic-Con Celebration in 2019 with these fresh-out-of-the-ocean strands.

Blunt Bangs

It’s not often we see Petsch with bangs, so when she donned blunt fringe at the 2019 Met Gala we were pleasantly surprised. Not that we would ever want her to hide that perfect visage of hers, but Petsch does look good in a blunt bang.

Faux Bob

Though we would weep uncontrollably for months if Petsch ever chopped off her red hair, we do like the fact that she played with a faux bob for the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. It’s ultimately a strategically styled low ponytail that creates the illusion of a bob—we’re kind of here for it.

Face-Framing Strands

Before everyone was framing their face with curtain bangs, Petsch was doing it with two strands in a classic bun hairstyle on the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. We will definitely do our best to copy this hairstyle, don’t you worry.

Straight Up Pony

At the 35th Annual PaleyFest Los Angeles, Petsch pulls off another gorgeous high ponytail with the greatest of ease. Seriously, what is her secret? We need to know why she looks good in every type of ponytail so we can do the same.

Ballerina Bun

Balletcore is everywhere, with influencers and celebrities alike showing off their take on a ballerina bun. We like to think Petsch brought back this trend with her bun at the 2017 GQ Men of the Year party.

Bombshell Blowout

Forget being a blonde bombshell, we want to be a redhead bombshell just like Petsch is here during Paris Fashion Week—but we know we’ll never be able to outdo the doer.

Middle Part Maven

Petsch’s middle parts are truly a work of art. They are always perfect—centered where they should be and there’s never a straying strand to be found.
