Halle Berry Rocks Hollywood's Hottest New Haircut
The Hollywood bombshell who once had the perfect pixie cut is showing off a whole new look — and it’s one that’s set to take over in 2017.

Halle Berry attended Revlon’s 2nd Annual "Love Is On" Million Dollar Challenge at the New York City's Glasshouses late last week, but it wasn’t the fact that she was wearing a sleeveless shimmery dress on a chilly evening that made us do a double take. Rather, the 50-year-old actress was rocking her caramel-hued tresses in a lob — also known as the shoulder-sweeping haircut that every star needed to have since 2013 — but she completely elevated it with a face-framing fringe.
Sure, getting bangs give off a more youthful appearance isn’t a new concept, but celebrity stylists are already insisting that this cut will be the latest in-demand trend, especially in the New Year.
"I’ve been telling everybody to get out of your lob," says celebrity stylist Jen Atkin (via E! News), who has worked on the manes of Gwen Stefani, the Kardashians, Cindy Crawford and Christina Hendricks, just to name a few.
"Cut a good fringe and start wearing your hair kind of messy and just blow-dry the fringe," adds Atkin. "Ask your hairstylist what suits your face shape, but I think a good heavy bang is so cool. It just kind of takes your mind off of the lob that’s growing out.”

Not only is Berry’s latest hairstyle simple and low-maintenance, but it’s effortlessly chic and can be rocked day and night with minimal effort. Best of all, bangs (especially when they're cut by an expert) will enhance your best facial features, providing a more youthful appearance. It’s no wonder South Beach-based stylist Danny Jelaca (who works with supermodels such as Naomi Campbell) called a good fringe an "instant face lift" and "eye opener."
"It’s a great solution to hide an imperfect hairline, wide forehead, or scar," added Jelaca. "It can also help balance non-symmetrical features. They help frame the face, like eyebrows do. They can also soften hard or weathered features."
