Actress Halle Berry was spotted picking up her beautiful daughter Nahla, 4, from preshool in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (November 6).
Halle recently revealed that her short, signature hair style doesn’t necessarily define who she is.
“When I have my short, short hair, that’s when I’m my best self,” she tells PEOPLE. “But hair doesn’t define me. It’s just an accessory that I get to wear, like a handbag or shoes.”
However, it was a different story when Halle was just starting out in Hollywood, since long hair was a standard of beauty.
“I personally fought against that stereotype when I first started acting,” she explains. “I would go on acting auditions, and every black girl would have this long, curly hair, whether it was real or not. And I would go to these auditions and come back with nothing. So I had to somehow be different.”
