When Halle Berry debuted a dramatic bob haircut at the Oscars red carpet it divided fans into those that were pro-bob and those who decidedly not. I’ll admit, I wasn’t exactly head over heels her new look but I mean, it’s Halle Berry after all — is there really any look she can’t pull off?! Even Berry got in on the fun on Twitter and had a laugh about the reaction her ultra-short new hairstyle had caused online. So you can imagine our surprise when we found out that the joke was on us and Berry’s look was actually just a temporary thing. Yep, the actress shared a snap on Instagram smiling with her long locks still intact, meaning that her controversial Oscars do was probably the result of a carefully placed wig. See for yourself:
“Oscar bob…just kidding 😂,” Berry captioned her post alongside a gorgeous selfie where she flashes a smile.
While many fans in the comments wrote something along the lines of “thank god,” others commented that her Oscars haircut was proof Berry can pull off any look — which is the only correct take. “😂… Some people were being really negative about the bob! LIL DID THEY KNOW!😂😂😂 SHE COULD PULL ANY LOOK OFF…🥰,” one comment read.
Another user chimed in to say, “Even if you weren’t I can’t understand why people tripped so hard. Don’t they know they don’t get a vote? Personally I loved it, edgy and super cute.❤️.” Long or short hair, the Oscar award-winning actress is an absolute stunner — all of the time.
