Halle's Offset Oscar Afro

A Textured Sensation

Celebrity hairstylist Castillo created Halle Berry's wonderfully asymmetric curly afro for a bold Oscars statement.

To create this stunning textured look, Castillo started with Halle's natural curl, prepping with MOP Mixed Greens Shampoo and Conditioner to moisturize the hair. While still damp, he added Mop Lemongrass Whip to the roots for lift and added volume and then applied the MOP C-Curl Defining Cream to mid-shaft through the ends. Using the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer and SoftTouch 2 Diffuser, he diffuse-dried sections of the hair. As soon as the hair was completely dry, Castillo used the T3 Whirl Trio Curling Iron to create different sized curls to clean up the look. Last, he sealed the entire look in with the MOP C-System Hairspray.

“It was a joint process, that took around two weeks to decide on. Halle’s been wearing her hair natural lately and we really wanted to create a style that embodied her whimsical spirit. She was blown away with the finished look, she said she felt absolutely amazing,” Castillo mentioned, marveling at the finished look.
