Halle Berry (hair)

Halle Berry’s marvelously messy new hairstyle is appearing everywhere -- including at your neighborhood movie theater. To sport this short look, make it chic and chunky, says celebrity stylist and creative director of got2b hair care John Blaine, who reveals the styling secrets behind this easy, cutting-edge cut.

STEP 1 (Note: Halle’s pixie has been razor-cut on the ends. If your hair is too long or not layered, this type of texturizing may be a challenge.) Wash your hair using a moisturizing shampoo and deep conditioner. This look involves a lot of blow-drying and these products help your hair retain moisture.

STEP 2 Towel dry your hair to remove excess moisture, and apply a “hair cocktail” made of equal parts styling gel and straightening balm. Work this mixture through your hair from the roots to the ends. This helps fight the frizzies and provides long-lasting hold.

STEP 3 Blow-dry your hair in sections from the bottom up. Use hair clips to section off the layers as you dry. Using a two-inch-round boar bristle brush, begin drying the back sections first, rolling the hair up and out with the brush. Repeat for the rest of the head, saving the crown and front section for last. When finished, your hair should look big and full, flipping up and sticking out in all directions.

STEP 4 Use a cream pomade to create a texturized look. Working with a small amount at a time, grab sections of hair and use the pomade to section and bend the hair in whatever direction you want. Continue for the entire head.

STEP 5 Apply a light coat of hair spray for extra hold. Finish the look with spray shine, making sure the shine you choose doesn’t have a high oil content (this could make your hair look greasy, not shiny).
