Halle Berry views her hair as "an accessory".
The stunning star has been sporting curly tresses of late, which is a change from her usual cropped style.
Halle changed up her look for a role in her latest film The Hive, but enjoys experimenting with her hair anyway.
"I actually did it for work," she revealed. "But I also look at hair as an accessory, just like a handbag or a pair of shoes. It's something you can put on, play with for a while and then take it off and try something different."
Halle likes her new effortless 'do. The Hollywood actress prefers more low-maintenance styles, as she loves sporting a more natural beauty look.
"When you have short hair, sometimes you have to play with it a little to make it look good," she explained to People. "This [pointing to her hair] is what you call wash-and-wear beach hair. It's ready to go!"
Halle looks younger than her 45 years. The beauty puts her good looks down to her healthy lifestyle.
"It's cleansing your skin, watching what you eat, no smoking, not too much drinking, no sugar - just simple," she said. "And using sunscreen! If you don't have a good base, then it doesn't matter what you put on it - it's not going to look as great as it could."
