Halle Berry's Vogue Crop
I'm about to tell you something that is going to blow your mind: Halle Berry is the first black woman to appear on a September Vogue since 1989. Crazy, right? In the interview, she answers questions about her latest breakup with model Gabriel Aubry and her adorable daughter, Nahla. But what we can't keep our eyes off is her cropped haircut with blunt bangs, which is actually long for Berry, who normally sports a pixie cut.
Yes, you could put Halle Berry in a neon pink wig with dreadlocks and the girl would still look amazing, but believe it or not, every face shape can pull off a shorter style, whether it's more structured and defined like this, or softer with some layers. If you're ready for a change for the shorter, consider the following before you chop:
Mentally prepare yourself. You're about to go through a serious change, and change is good! Still, remind yourself there will be an initial shock factor before you get used to your new style.
Think about life events. Do you have a big event coming up that you're going to want an updo for? Growing your hair out can take anywhere from six months to a year depending on the length, so think about the next year when picking a cut.
Bangs take added maintenance. If you want bangs, especially ones that fall straight across your forehead like these, keep in mind you'll have to make extra salon visits (or keep them up yourself if you're brave enough) to keep them at the right length. Side bangs are a little easier because you can let them grow out a little longer without it being noticeable.
Bring pictures! The best example you can give your stylist is a picture. Find your celebrity inspiration and take it to the salon. That way they can judge if this is the best cut for your hair texture and face shape.
