Halle's New Pixie Cut: Love It or Hate It?

05/26/2009 at 10:38 AM ET


The best way to beat the summer heat? Take a cue from Halle Berry and chop off your hair! The sexy star, who had already recently trimmed and lightened her hair, kicked off the summer season by showing off a new pixie do over the weekend, which was similar to the shorter hair that used to be her signature style. And while we loved Halle’s longer locks, we have to say that it takes one hot mama to pull off such a short and sleek style! Tell us: Do you love Halle Berry’s pixie cut or should she go back to longer hair?

She has always sported some of the fiercest short hair styles and I’ve missed them! Love it.

nadia on

Love it!!!
It’s her signature look!

Lisa on

Halle Berry looks beautiful no matter what look she has. This short cut is very stunning and a great cut for her!

Morgan on

I mean… it’s Halle Berry. She looks good no matter what… I think she has a strong enough bone structure to pull it off…

LOVE IT!! She looks better with short hair!

Halle is gorgeous. She looks best with really short hair. It shows of her beautiful face!

Cate on

I love Hallie, and I think she is gorgeous, but… this new cut is NOT flattering.

She used to have such gorgeous long hair! I’m a fan of Pixie cuts, but this ‘do looks like it belongs on a man.

She is truly a beautiful lady.
Any haircut looks great on her.

Annonymus on

I love her hair…but can’t tell…is that just a shadow above her left eye or a bruise?

Ajay on

For all of those who qualify beauty by having long hair Halle once again proves a pretty face, is a pretty face regardless of hair length. I always liked her in short hair,to me it is a much hipper, sleeker and confident look. But ultimately we don’t really get a vote, nor should we.

kittykitty on

love it love it love it!

my absolute fave look on her.

been bored silly of her generic long hair looks.

this is her signature style….

xo xo xo



nikki on

She is one of those lucky ladies, who look good with any hairstyle!! NOt fair!!

eLISE on

I love it! Its sexy/classy

Kim on

I think she looks gorgeous! But the reason she has cut her hair twice recently is because she is getting ready to shave her head BALD for a new movie called Nappily Ever After. She’s taking baby steps!

Elsa on

I lovet it she always looks good on short hair!!!!!!!!

Margo Brant on

Awesome! What a classy lady.

Karen Baker on

This woman could wear any hair cut or anything anytime and look terrific!

Sharmel on

Looks good. Best way for Nahla to recognize you with the gradual shorter cut for when you shave your head for your next film role.

impoguemahone on

I prefer her with the ultra-short “Pixie” style. I think it does a lot for her and makes her look even prettier!

Truc on

halle looks good in anything!

Blair on

I like it! she looks pretty all the time. this doesnt subtract from any of her features.

Mikaela on

I totally love it! I say keep it short!

Jess on

She has always been able to pull off any hairstyle. She looks great with her new pixie cut!!

JeanE on

Yuk, I hate it! She’s beautiful, no doubt, but there’s nothing you can do with that hair, it will look the same every day, boring! It’s very unfeminine & she’s not as young as she used to be! I think her long hair which I think was extensions was much much softer & flattering.

Halle looks beautiful regardless of her hair style. I think this hair cut looks great on her, it really accents her face, plus it’s her signature look.

Steve on

Love it, Hot!!

Jess on

LOVELOVELOVE Halles new pixie cut, its how i remember her from James Bond, its much more flattering for her than her longer hair which covered her stunning face.

dasjerie on

loove your hair girl you rockin it and dont let any one tell you that you not rockin it♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Marsha on

LOVE IT. She change her hair syles every couple of years. I think more women need to do that if their hair is long.



nicole on

she looks beautiful no matter what. she is a classic beauty.

Michele on

I love it and as a matter of fact, not copying her or anything, got my hair cut like that and I love it! It is so much cooler in our HOT Texas weather and so chic! I agree that Halle would look good in any look as she is one of the “prettiest women” I know of!!!

janet on

Cate, really think you are outvoted! Short hair on Halle is the best! Gives her a very real classic look.

Amy on

Hate it. She’s beautiful but her hair is much too severe. It can be short and easy to take care of without being THAT short–it’s shorter than my husband’s hair! Not feminine!

dia on

I think she looks so much better with short hair. Her long weave made her look much older. Now she looks like a cute little 20 something.

Judith on

I think she looks better with longer hair.

sherry on

when she let her hair grow out i told my husband (and i mean no disrespect) she just looks like every other woman now, but yea she has cut it off and went back short and it is the best look for her. LOVE IT

Celeste Marshall on

Halle Berry is slammin’!!!!!! She looks good no matter what she does. You go girl!!!!

Huge love! Not many women can pull off that cut. I always thought she looked best this way.

Gaby on

Halle is so beautiful no matter what hair style!!!! But i think she looks better with longer hair!!!

Tom on

Finally!! Halle has such a beautiful bone structure the complements short ‘dos’!! When she is wearing it short, she is one ‘hot’ lady; so pretty, so sexy!!

Long hair didn’t do it for me with her. Oh, she looked nice and very attractive but she didn’t ‘punch me out’ as she does with short hair!!

Thanks for letting us see the ‘real’ Halle again!!

Danielle on

Halle Berry is not only older but she can wear anything and still look good. I’m 18 years old and I’m not even on her her statis. No matter what youngen comes out Halle Berry still is just about everyone’s dreamgirl. She get’s on my nerves!(LOL)I hope if I ever cut my hair i look just as good as she does. Not everyone can wear long and short hair and look good.

Danielle on

oh yeah Love It!(LOL)

Stephanie on

Excuse me,Ms. Berry, but Rihanna called; she wants her hair back.

alfabch on

Let’s face it, Halle would look good bald and dressed in a potato sack. Personally I think she looks better in short hair than in long hair, with her cheek bones who needs to hide behind long hair.

Linda on

This time it is her real hair!

Jules on

Long hair makes her look normative. Her face is so beautiful and short hair brings it all forward instead of hiding it.

Samantha on


Marion on

I love it….love it….love it…
She looks so much better with short hair. It really fits her. I wish I could be so bold as to cut my hair that short. It is so classy!!!

Ronika on

Love the short cut hair. I’ve been hoping she would go back to the short cut it looks nicer on her than the longer length she was sporting. The long hair made her look older.

dipsy on

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

Cutie on

Of course, love it!!! She’s beautiful no matter what style she sports!!! True beauty!!!

Rachel on

THANK GOD! She has always looked her best with the pixie…love it.DOn’t go back to ratty extensions or a weave..PLEASE

Sienne on

I think she looks great regardless BUT short hair looks more sexy, confident, and striking then her long hair. It just fits her and her personality. I hope she is happy with it as we all like looking at it. She is making me itch to cut.lol!

Isabel on


Stephanie you have it backwards, this was Halle’s style long before Rihanna. You must be a youngster so look it up.

Also, for those who didn’t know, Halle’s long hair was not weave or extensions, it was her real hair.

LOVE the pixie cut!

Jeannette on

No – the long hair was a weave (she said so herself). But, what difference does it make? She definitely ROCKS the short cut look well and inspired many women. I do love this look on her.

LuLu on

LOVE IT!!!! Short hair is wondeful and she looks good in anything!

Pami on

Did you know there is two different style pixie cuts one has more body to it the other one is more flat both side of the head,the hair is flat in a swip by side of eyes the back of head the hair is very very short. This is one of the hottest hair styles for summer 2009.
Better go get your hair cut, to be in style!

lenathediva on

Love it! The hairstyle reminds me of the old-school Halle. Very cute and edgy.

Zoe on

Halle is such a beautiful woman, she can do short or long . She has the perfect face for any haircut. But the short crop gives her some edge. I love it!!
