“Am I seeing things or is Halle’s hair in a short curly bob!?” The 2023 Met Gala was a night to remember with its enchanting theme of romance and remembrance. Among the many breathtaking looks, one of the most striking was Halle Bailey's revolutionary take on loc styles. The young singer and actress proved once again that she's not afraid to experiment with her
style and push the boundaries of what's possible.
Halle made an absolutely stunning entrance, decked out in a floor-length sheer white gilded dress that left everyone in awe. The dress, adorned with sparkling embellishments resembling a mermaid tail, was a perfect fit for Halle's upcoming role as the iconic character in the new adaptation of "The Little Mermaid." To top it all off, Halle accessorized with a ruffled cape that added a touch of elegance and drama to her already breathtaking look. It was clear to everyone in attendance that Halle is not just a talented actress and singer, but a true fashion icon in the making.
We've all been dying to know - how did Halle manage to pull off that gorgeous burgundy short curly bob? Social media went wild when the young star appeared at an event sporting this stunning new look. Since Halle and her sister's debut to the world, they have been breaking barriers and setting new beauty standards by introducing fresh and innovative loc styles. With
every appearance, Halle manages to look more stunning than the last.
The thing is, Halle's new bob was so flawlessly executed that it left many of us wondering how she managed to achieve it without disturbing her natural locs. Upon closer inspection, it seems that Halle's locs are still intact, and the bulk of them is crocheted back to hide the volume. The front section is left out so that the straight hair used for cutting and styling can be crocheted in and transformed into the iconic bob that we all fell in love with. One Facebook user was able to confirm our theory and shed some light on Halle's stunning new look. According to the user, "It is pinned/braided down. Then the straighter hair is crocheted over her locs." This technique allowed Halle to achieve a beautifully sleek and stylish bob without having to cut or alter her natural locs. Another fan hilariously expressed their admiration for Halle's new look by calling it " witchcraft”. But while the end result may seem like pure magic, the true credit goes to the skilled hands of Halle's stylist, Tinisha Meeks.
