|1BlessedNatural: Why Halle Berry was Criticized for Wearing a Natural Hairstyle to the Oscars (photo cred: Instagram)|
Halle Berry wore a head full of curls for this year's Oscars this past Sunday night.When I first heard about her wearing her natural hair, I got excited. The actress and her curls were trending on Twitter. So, I checked out a YouTube video and saw why people weren't feeling her hair.
At first glance, some of the pictures of Halle Berry's big curls are beautiful. The hairstyle is voluminous and wallowing in all of its natural hair glory. However, in her interview with Ryan Seacrest, I noticed her hair looked more like a wig. There was not much movement at all. It looked to me like her stylist sprayed it down with a load of hairspray.
You all know I am a big lover of natural hair, but we all have to be honest with ourselves when our hair doesn't look right. I would want my friends to tell me if they didn't think my hair looked right. I love Halle Berry and the fact that she rocked her natural hair to the Oscars, but I do think another style would have suited her. Maybe the curly style she wore could have been styled a bit differently.
Her hair stylist, Castillo Bataille shared an Instagram photo of the 50-year-old actress rocking big curls and a tan and black Versace dress. Part of his caption said,"Celebrating natural #curls on the beautiful #HalleBerry for tonight's #Oscars red carpet..."His statement came as a shock to many Twitter users who thought Ms. Berry's hair was a wig. One Twitter user asked,"What does Halle Berry have on her head?" Another user said, "The black people's twitter[sic] council is not about to let this #HalleBerry wig slide by."
Although the actress received criticism about her style, Halle Berry did not let that stop her from rocking it with pride. In an interview with Vogue, Berry said, "I celebrate my natural hair by allowing it to be wild and free."I've had times where my hair didn't look the way I thought it should, but I rocked it anyway. That is the most important thing! Chin up!
Halle, we are still rooting for you! (in my Tyra Banks voice)
This is not the first time the actress displayed her love for natural hair. Back in 2015, Halle Berry allegedly took her daughter's father, Gabriel Aubry to court for straightening her hair.
