Halle Berry sent social media ablaze with her latest look at the 2017 Oscars Sunday night. While the 50-year-old stunner wowed on the red carpet while draped in a dazzling Atelier Versace gown, it was her hair that had fans (and critics) talking.

The award-winning actress showed off a ’90s-esque bevy of curls with blonde and platinum highlights set into a crown-heavy bob. While many assumed the look was created via a wig installation, Halle shared with Vogue that her carefree curls were all hers.

“I have always marched to the beat to my own drum, and I think this red-carpet look encapsulates that,” said Berry. “With this look, I celebrate my natural hair by allowing it to be wild and free.”

While we are all her for Halle rocking her God-given curls, this look may not be her best mane move. I’m personally loving the brow-grazing coils and front-facing shape, but a side and back view tell a different story. I wish they were better shaped to give the full-on slay a diva like her deserves.

Are you feeling Halle’s new curly do? Is it hype? Or hmm? Sound off below.
