Halle Berry Said "Just Kidding" About Her Dramatic Microbob Haircut at the Oscars

There's no better place to debut a new look than at the Oscars, right? On April 25, Halle Berry popped up on the red carpet wearing a fabulous purple Dolce and Gabbana gown and a head-turning new haircut. The stunning actress and Oscar presenter flaunted her new A-line microbob with microbangs completed by stylist Sara Seward, and it immediately had the crowd in awe.

It's been quite some time since we've seen Berry with a short hairstyle, as she's been rocking shoulder-length hair with sweeping bangs recently. Berry even posted a photo of a pile of hair on the ground ahead of the big event on her Instagram Story, but as it turns out, it was all a joke. Five days later on April 30, Berry posted a selfie on Instagram of her long wavy hair still intact. "Oscar bob...just kidding 😂," she captioned the image. She really got us there.
