We ALL love redheads! But can you tell the difference between Ron Weasley’s and Archie Andrews’ hair?


It takes attitude, confidence and one heck of a lot of OMG… WOW factor to pull off red hair. Just ask our fave wizard, Rupert Grint, he knows that all too well.


Obvs, Rupes is a natural redhead. But some of our other favourite on-screen characters have to go an extra mile to get ginger locks.

Take KJ Apa, the actor who plays the leading-man in MP!’s favourite new show Riverdale, for example.

QUIZ: Can you tell the difference between THESE Riverdale and Harry Potter quotes?

QUIZ: How popular are your ‘Riverdale’ opinions?

For his role of Archie Andrews, KJ has to dye every two weeks. EVERY. TWO. WEEKS. Now, that’s what you call dedication to a role. He recently told

“…It’s not my favorite thing to do, but obviously I’ve got to do it because the roots keep coming up and my hair grows really fast. So, two weeks max I can go shooting, and then I have to get it dyed again. I’m sitting there for at least two-and-a-half hours…”

Lonnnngggggg. If that wasn’t enough then KJ also revealed that at times it can also be incredibly painful. Yikes. We do not envy you at all, my friend.

“It was really painful the first and the second time I got it done because they do my eyebrows as well. They ended up bleaching my eyebrows, and I had two holes — they burnt into my skin.”

Can you tell the different between real redhead and faux redhead though? Prove it! We’ve put together a quiz below.

All you need to do is guess whether the snippet in the photo is Ron Weasley‘s hair or Archie Andrews’ hair!
