Halle Berry Sedu Hairstyles

Halle Berry's beauty first brought her to fame at the age of 17, when she won the Miss Teen All-American Pageant in 1985. She went on to be the first runner up in the Miss USA Pageant.
She became a model and then an actress, with a variety of roles including Storm in X-men. In 2001 she was the first African American actress to win an Academy Award for Best Actress, in the film Monster's Ball.
This fame meant lots of red carpet appearances and Halle won legions of fans for her beautiful gowns and her Sedu funky pixie hair style. She has been voted the Sexiest Woman in the World by FHM and as having the Sexiest Body by VH1!
Halle kept her hair short until 2003 – experimenting with different ways to wear it, including straight, very styled, messy, curled and ruffled. Every look was a hit and you can re-create Halle's styles with Sedu
Sedu is the best ever for ethnic hair!
This type of hair tends to be dry and prone to frizzing. Hair irons work by heat and negative ions. Sedu's ceramic plates also contain tourmaline which is why they cut straightening time in half and gives you an ultra smooth finish!
Once you have Sedu'd your hair, it won't frizz in damp or humid conditions! You just keep that smooth shine until the next time you shampoo and Sedu!

How to Sedu Halle's pixie look
Most hair 'how-to's' show you shoulder length or long hairstyles
. Here's a great one for short hair
This pixie cut really suits Halle's long face. Her hair has been razor-cut so if your hair is longer than this or has no layers – it would be difficult to copy this look
- Wash and condition your hair using deeply moisturizing products. This style needs a lot of drying and straightening so you want to put as much moisture into the hair as you can
- Gently towel-dry your hair and then massage in equal amount of styling gel and straightening balm. Don't use too much and make sure that it is worked right through your hair from the roots to the tips. This mixture will help to prevent any frizzing and will give good hold to your finished style
- Divide your hair into two sections – top and bottom – and secure the top half with clips. Begin blow-drying the bottom. Using a round brush, roll the hair up and out. Repeat at the sides and do the crown and front last. You hair should now look big and sticking out – don't panic, we haven't finished yet!
- Run a brush lightly through your hair and use your Sedu to create flick-ups at the back and sides
- Now, working with a small section at a time, work in a tiny amount of pomade and texturize your hair, working it into whichever directions you prefer. You can stay true to Halle's style or change it if you like!
- To finish, apply a very light mist of hair spray and then spray shine

Sleek and sophisticated!
Halle eventually started to grow her hair out and has since been seen with it in a variety of lengths and styles.
This elegant longer style shows off Halle's perfectly proportioned features. The success of this cut is down to the long layers at the bottom, which break up the severity of the smoothness at the top and add interest.
If you have long layers like this it's easy to copy Halle's look with Sedu! Wash and condition your hair. Dry it with a dryer set on cool to help smooth the hair cuticle. Slick on some heat protection and then simply glide the Sedu over your hair, in small sections. Turn the iron under slightly at the ends, to give it the same shape as Halle's style. Complete the look with some shine spray.

Sedu an elegant up-do!
Once you've mastered straightening the long bob with your Sedu – you can easily put your hair into this style.
Wash, dry and straighten your hair as before.
Make a side part and brush your hair back very smooth to your head. Put it into a ponytail that is mid-ear height.
Section off the pony tail and take one section at a time. Slick a tiny amount of pomade onto the hair and then twist it until it makes a little 'bun' of its' own. Secure it firmly in place with long pins.
Repeat with each section. Mist lightly with spray shine.

Bouncing with health!
These beautiful, glossy curls show what great condition Halle's hair is in. To get a headful of curls – wash and condition your hair then massage in some styling gel. Dry it with a cool dryer and then put on some heat protection.
Take a small section of hair in the irons and run the Sedu down to the end. Then wrap the hair around the Sedu, right up to the roots and hold it for a few seconds. Gently release the curl and repeat all over your head.
Run your fingers through your new curls to loosen them and then use a spray shine as the finishing touch.
