Charlize Theron has always been one of everyone’s favorite when it comes to getting that extra dose of courage when thinking about jumping into the pool of a shorter hair-do. Always rocking them ever so flawlessly, the American Actress’s hair stylist posted a photo to Instagram of Theron and a new do. With the caption “Always love changing up this human’s hair. New color. Swept back. New vibe,” was definitely befitting of the new look for the major evening. The new hair was uniquely shorter than her usual statement chop, indeed “swept back” but with honey highlights through a feathered platinum overall color.
The cut was submissively appealing, with a light voluminous combover from the front to the back, gently teased, with a chic punk’ish shave to the sides. The beauty continued to ring in delight as the finishes touches complement from the selection of make-up. Going for a more subtle shade to perfectly clash with new lustrous cut. As quoted in hairstylist Asir Abergel, Theron was being honored for the evening at the American Cinematheque Awards in which he “could not be any prouder.”
“Always love changing up this human’s hair. New color. Swept back. New vibe,” wrote hairstylist Adir Abergel alongside an Instagram snap of Charlize Theronover the weekend. The caption rang true as Theron’s new ‘do—inches shorter with honeyed highlights switched for a single shade of platinum— exuded an entirely refreshed feel. While her last chop read classic and sweetly gamine, the actress’s lightened mane, defined by extra length and volume at the front, skewed subversive and punkish, an aesthetic offset by her romantic makeup palette (think rose lips, bronze-brushed skin, and a few swipes of mascara).
And for those who favor abbreviated lengths, the comment section of Abergel’s share featured a welcome styling tip. In response to one commenter’s complaint around difficulty achieving Theron’s level of hair height at the front of the short style, Abergel sounded off with a simple, though game-changing, tip: tease the roots. The result is a look at once done-up and undone—the ultimate balancing act.
