Halle Berry Is Rocking Her Natural Hair, Despite The Haters
Instead of those options, the Kidnap star paid homage to her natural curls with the help of her longtime stylist Castillo. "It was a joint process that took around two weeks to decide on," he tells Refinery29. "Halle’s been wearing her Hair natural lately, and we really wanted to create a style that embodied her whimsical spirit."
Berry, who shimmered in a black and nude Atelier Versace halter gown, told Vogue that her curls had a specific meaning. “The dress is glamorous with a sense of romance that made me feel feminine and fresh," she noted. "With this look, I celebrate my natural hair by allowing it to be wild and free.”
While Berry celebrated her texture, some social media users didn't want to join that party. Some said her hair aged her. Others sympathized for the people who sat behind her. Most called it a wig, even comparing her to Rachel Dolezal. They called her Scary Spice, and just plain scary. They said she looked like she was electrocuted. And those were some of the nicest tweets.
Despite the haters, Berry's bold step in embracing her natural beauty means that she has the last laugh. "She was blown away with the finished look," Castillo tells us. "She said she felt absolutely amazing."
