Halle Berry's short, choppy bob at this months's Academy Awards inspired thousands of memes and reactions on Twitter. Many were convinced it was real — especially considering Berry shared an Instagram story showing chunks of hair on the floor. But rest assured, the dramatic haircut was just a temporary change.

The Oscar-winning actress just shared a sunlit selfie with her long, glossy hair still intact. "Oscar bob...just kidding 😂" she captioned the photo. The haircut on the red carpet turned out to be one very convincing wig. After all, the best hair transformations are the ones that don't require any commitment.

Berry paired her polarising hairstyle with a magenta Dolce & Gabbana dress at the award ceremony on Sunday night. Her makeup was kept fresh and glowy thanks to makeup artist Jorge Monroy and his kit of Clinique products.

But one beauty moment you might have missed that night was Berry's manicure. Celebrity nail artist Nettie Davis created a gorgeous pink-and-white marble nail art look on the actress's long, almond-shaped nails. The simple design was the perfect canvas to complement Berry's six (!) diamond rings by Ridano. Nail art is officially back.

Berry is no stranger to hair transformations, having worn everything from an iconic pixie cut to long curls in her career. But at least for now, she's sticking to her new signature look: soft, beachy waves with caramel and golden highlights.
