Celebrity stylist Oribe dishes on Halle Berry's bold, retro-inspired bob:
"Halle had never worn her hair in this type of style, and I was very interested in doing something different. I was inspired by the clothes for the shoot, which had an Art Deco influence. I also referenced the film "The Professional" with Natalie Portman. She was only about 13 at the time, and she had this great little bob that looked so perfect. I wanted Halle’s hair to be very sharp and direct in that same way and not at all bulky. The idea was to get flat, straight hair with soft, movable bangs to create interest."
At the Salon
"If you want to request this style, you can tell your hairdresser you want a shorter bob. The key is that it needs to be tailored to each person, by changing the length of the bangs, for example. The whole style is about simplicity and strength…it’s actually a bit severe in its strength. Anyone can wear this style, and your hairstylist should help you modify it to work with your features and lifestyle."
How to Style
"To get-the-look, first blow-dry hair straight using Oribe Royal Blowout. Next, apply Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray to the hair shaft, and use a flat iron all over. Soft Lacquer imparts a beautiful shine and a smooth finish. As a last step, smooth any stray hairs with a flat brush to perfect the look, which has more or less no volume."
