Halle Berry's New Do: Love It or Hate It

/home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fofftherack.people.com%2F2008%2F01%2F23%2Fhalle-berrys-new-do-love-it-or-hate-it%2F" class="Popup


I love it! I would kill for this hair.
Some of the remarks are totally rude though. We have a long way to go I think.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

    I'm on the fence. I need to see it from a different angle.
    From that picture angle I don't like it.:sad8:

    Yes, I need to see it from the front. Do you see the henna on her hands? Cool! She looked great in the latest Inside.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    I LOVE it. Does this woman ever look bad? I hate her sometimes LOL j/k Its bad enough she is 41 and looks 20, but to look good pregnant too is just unfair.

    I'm not sure about it, I don't hate it it looks healthy but a little to "styled" for my liking but it suits her.

    ETA: ok I just looked at the 4a board and seeing different shots of it, I actually like it, also it doesn't look so styled in those shots either

    I think it's adorable! I wish I could wear my hair short like that, but it makes me look like I have chipmunk cheeks. *sigh* It must be nice to be able to do anything with your hair and still lot great!

    I love her hair. I have never seen her look anything but gorgeous. She also comes across as being a very sincerely nice person when she is interviewed as well.
    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

    I like it! It reminds me of Old Hollywood glamour. The comments on that page, though, are snotty. Someone said that her hair looks like a nest. It doesn't. I don't see tangles or frizz. I could see if she said it was over the top or reminiscent of Shirley Temple. After all, not all styles are for everyone.

    I know the only negative thing I can come up with is that she kind of looks like Whitney Houston. Which actually isn't so bad.

    I love it and I'm very surprised at how many negative responses it received on the blog. (A nest???)

  • susancnwsusancnw Posts: 1,366Registered Users
    it's nice and it balances out her belly getting bigger. I adore it when she wears it REALLY short...one of the few women who can do that...emphasizes her eyes and cheekbones.

    What has she done in the past 2 yrs? I like her a lot.

    I'm not wild about the style, but that could be the candid photo and the poor angle, too.

    The curls and her hair itself, however, I adore. Does that make sense that I like the hair and not the style? :goofy: I'd kill for those curls and the overall health of (what I hope is) her hair.

    I guess I should say I love it because I've had the cut before and my curls look the same...but I don't know because of the camera angle. Anyone see any front shots?
