I saw so many instances of people insinuating that Halle Berry’s hair was a wig and that it was way too big for her face. Well if you have been watching her Instagram feed lately she has been rocking a full head of sexy curls much different from her usual wavy or short-cropped look.
Popsugar got the details on her look through an email to her stylist Castillo who admitted that the look was a two-week process:
We’re obsessed with these glossy ringlets! Celebrity stylist Castillo, who was responsible for the stunning coif, told POPSUGAR via email that it’s been a two-week-long process developing the look.
“She wanted to go with a natural beauty kind of vibe,” he explained. “It’s a big night, so she wanted to do something different, something that she’s never really done on the red carpet before.”
In case you were wondering, yes, these are Halle’s natural strands. Castillo used MOP Mixed Greens Shampoo and Conditioner to add moisture to the hair then used MOP C-Curl Defining Cream from midshaft down to the ends. Another key product utilized was the T3 Twirl Convertible Curling Iron.
“To help create a polished look, use a small-barrel curling iron to detail any undefined curls,” Castillo advised, who used the hot tool to create different-sized curls.
This is what her stylist put on Instagram:
Even though I personally loved her curls, she received quite a bit of hate from social media about her curls, some calling it a birds nest, others speculating that she was wearing more than one wig.
For example Funkydineva:
Unfortunately, the attacks on her hair just perpetuate the idea that big natural hair is just not appropriate for Hollywood glam.
I disagree! Comment below and let me know your thoughts!
