“I want to have a Halle Berry haircut,” I said to my hairstylist S the other week. I was leaving for NYC and wanted to be stylish. S did a wonderful job with my hair. His assistant googled Halle and then I picked out the picture from her many looks and S gave me an awesome pixie cut.
What do you think? I like my hair with a shorter cut. It is usually easier to take care of. However, it’s not so easy to maintain this Halle Berry look each day.
“How will I ever get my hair to look this good every morning?” I asked S.
“It’s SO EASY to maintain this cut,” said S. “There’s nothing to it,” he added as he began to list the steps to Halle hair:
1. Put some volumizing cream on your hair.
2. Use a round brush to pull the right side of the front of your hair towards the right side over your right forehead.
3. Then take a flat brush to push the back top of your hair back and up.
4. Leave the sides alone, just let them dry naturally.
5. Put some spray wax or styling cream on your fingers (just a little bit) and mess up your hair.
6. Spray with hairspray to keep the spike up.
“This is a lot of work,” I told S. “Now what about Halle Berry’s body? Can you make my 50 year old body look like Halle’s body too?”
“I wish I could give you Halle Berry’s body. But, if I could do that, I would no longer need to cut hair, I’d be rich,” said S. (Note: I may be able to get a body like Halle Berry if I follow these tips from the How Celebrities Lose Weight website. Check it out. Do you know Halle has diabetes? I didn’t know that.)
I left the salon and went to Ulta to get volumizing cream, a flat brush, a round brush, spray wax, and some hardcore hairspray. If I can’t have Halle’s body, I want to ensure that I will at least have her hair for the next six weeks…until my next haircut appointment with S.
Like Lady Gaga says in one of my favorite songs from her new Born this Way album.
“I’ve had enough, this is my prayer, that I’ll die living just as free as my Hair.”
Do you want to sing a few of the verses with me? I just LOVE GAGA. Don’t you? Do you have her new album? It is so great. Maybe if I start dancing to all the songs on her album, I’ll get Halle Berry’s body. Oh, come on, sing along with me. Aren’t you a boomer girl who wants to be as free as her hair?
