Halle Berry Talks Signature Short Hairstyle And Hair Extensions (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Halle Berry has rocked a number of hairstyles over the years, but it's her signature pixie cut that has become iconic.

So, it's no wonder the internet was abuzz when the superstar actress debuted a longer and much curlier hairstyle a few weeks ago.

Is it a wig? Have her pending nuptials sparked a drastic makeover? What was going on?

Well, Halle cleared up all our queries in a recent interview with ELLE.com, where she talked about her marvelous mane and that perplexing 'do switcheroo.

"I love short hair—that’s me, that’s who I am. I just feel confident and feel like my best self when I have short hair," Halle told ELLE. "But it’s fun to change sometimes. I get a little bored and, as a woman, I want to change my shoes, my outfit, and my hair. And thanks to extensions, it’s easy to do."

And as any serious faux hair patron, or in this case Oscar-winning actress, knows--you have to master the art of color and texture matching to really make the style believable.

"The trick is that you have to get hair that looks like it’s actually growing out of your head—it has to be the same texture as your natural hair," Halle added. "My hair is naturally curly like this, so you’re not able to see where the extensions begin."

Check out Halle's new longer curly style and a dedication to her iconic "Halle" 'do in the slideshow below.
