The hair maestro responsible for Theron's new do, is Adir Abergel who posted the below picture on Instagram of the moment he gives her the chop right before the Oscars captioned, "Decided to chop it all off before the big moment.#cantwaittoshare #oscars2019#hairbyadir"
The hairstylist had actually coloured her hair earlier in the week and also posted the finished Oscar's glam, saying "Hair is your greatest accessory! Changing your hair is best way to transform yourself. And, why not? This week we changed @charlizeafrica look. We changed her color earlier this week and this morning we chopped off her hair. ♥️ Thank you @traceycunningham1 for helping me achieve this color vision, and thank you @virtuelabs and @ghd_northamerica for creating a gorgeous and shiny hair look!
Love this team @kateleemakeup@lesliefremar. #hairbyadir#charlizetheron #withVirtue #ghdhair#oscars2019"
The 43-year-old looks more beautiful than ever arriving on the red carpet in a pastel blue, long-sleeved gown by Dior.
The back of her dress, however, was the spotlight-stealing detail after her hair.
Her equally glamorous beauty look (we are LOVING that bright red lip) was polished off with Bvlgari jewellery.
We love the dark new locks Charlize!
