Halle Bailey answered a few questions about combing out her locs and to our surprise, she said she is curious about it.
The thing is, even though Halle said she is curious about Loose hair, she was clear that combing out her locs or cutting them would be very emotional for her.
Our hair holds a lot of power.
EW recently reported that Halle said it was “a beautiful experience” to bring “the essence of me” to the character of Ariel in Disney’s live-action, CG-animated The Little Mermaid. That included her hair locs.
Bailey sat down with EW at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. to discuss her role after a first look was revealed at the fan convention. She says director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Into the Woods) wanted her to incorporate aspects of herself into the role, such as red locs to complement her own hair.
“With Rob, he’s so amazing and just saying, ‘I see you and I want to bring you into the character,'” Bailey, 22, says. “So it was a beautiful thing. My hair, for example — incorporating my locs into the red hair was something that was really special to me. The outfit, the fins, everything. It’s just amazing. I’m just grateful that I’ve been able to take the essence of me and mix the two.”
