debuted her new hairstyle at the 89th Academy Awards. On Sunday, February 26, the 50-year-old actress ditched her usual short hair as she showed up on the award-giving ceremony’s red carpet with more dramatic look.
The former “” actress arrived in a black-and-silver one shoulder asymmetrical gown from Versace. She completed her look with huge earrings and some bangles. Berry obviously looked stunning, but her hair was the one that stole the limelight. The “” actress’ locks were big, brown and super curly. Some of Berry’s hair even fell right in front of her forehead, making her face look smaller.
Berry’s stylist, Castillo, later revealed that Berry opted for something “powerful and beautiful” for the Oscars. “Halle definitely wanted something people aren’t used to, that wasn’t so perfect and a bit disheveled, but still something that is powerful and beautiful,” explained Castillo.
The famous stylist also shared that he intentionally styled Berry’s hair a bit asymmetrical to match the “” actress’ Versace gown. For Berry’s dazzling Oscars look, Castillo had to cut five inches of the “” actress’ hair. He needed to chop Berry’s hair that long to create a heart shape to frame her face.
The mother of two actually had changed her hairstyle since last month. Berry took to her Instagram on Friday, January 6, to share a photo of her curly hair. The curls were identical with the one Berry chose for Oscars, but in the picture her hair was a little bit longer. Along with the snap, Berry wrote, “Millie is her name.”
