Her new, trendy pixie is so unusual and upbeat...
You don't see women over 50 with undercut short hairstyles every day, as long as the lady's name isn't Halle Berry. On March 13, 2022, the actress accepted the #SeeHer Critics' Choice Award, which honors women who "push the boundaries of changing stereotypes" and support "the authentic representation of women in the entertainment landscape."
At the awards ceremony, Berry sported a brand new sassy short haircut that was perfect for the award she was receiving. Halle Berry's new haircut is bold and daring like herself. The hairstyle is a mix of pixie and undercut. It is clearly blonde in the upper layers and fades into a dark brown at the roots.
American hair professional Sarah Seward is responsible for changing the actress' look. On Instagram, she praised her customer for the cheeky undercut short hairstyle with the words: "No one looks better than you."
At the Critics' Awards ceremony, Halle Berry was accompanied by her boyfriend Van Hunt. The couple, who officially announced their relationship on Instagram in September 2020, was stunned with their black-and-white ensembles. While Hunt, 51, looked dapper in a double-breasted white tuxedo with black lapels and black shirt, pants, and shoes, Berry, 55, was seen in a white corset top and black velvet suit, complete with her new asymmetrical undercut short hairstyle.
The actress, who also recently made her directorial debut with the film Bruised, said she's grateful to be creating at a time when women are telling their own stories. Her daring undercut short hairstyle also matched the message she conveyed:
"We're going to use our emotional intelligence and tell stories that don't fit with preconceived notions. No, we will tell stories that show us in all our diversity and contradictions, because we are confident and afraid. Vulnerable and strong, that's us. We are beautiful and we are abused. We are all of that, all at the same time. Because when we deny our complexity, we also deny our humanity.”
"We won't always be beautiful and we will never be perfect, but what we will be is honest and real, no matter how uncomfortable that is. These are the stories we must fight for and these are the stories the world needs to see. This is what we want to say to every little girl who feels invisible and unheard: “We love you and we see you. And you deserve all the good things in this world.”
Of course, Berry is a girl with a long history with pixie cut. For a long time in the 90s, the actress wore a different version of the short hairstyle. In 2002, Halle Berry received the gold Oscar statuette for her performance in the film Monster's Ball, becoming the first black woman to receive the award for a leading role - she remains the only one to this day. She then showed up on the red carpet with her pixie haircut, which has become her trademark.
And although Halle Berry looks stunning with any hair length, there's inexplicable chemistry between her and the short haircut that's magical. As a Bond girl with a pixie cut, Berry looked sexier than ever. 20 years later, she doesn't disappoint by showing off a great twist on her signature look.
