Now that she's finally confirmed her engagement to Olivier Martinez, is Halle Berry trying out wedding hairstyles?

The Oscar winning actress, who's rocked a cropped look on and off for years, showed off full, shoulder-length curls in a lighter shade of brown while picking up her 4-year-old daughter Nahla from school in Los Angeles Friday.

Berry, 45, first revealed her dramatic new look while out on a dinner date with her fiance earlier in the week.

Dating since 2010, Us Weekly broke the news in January that the French actor, 46, had proposed to Berry–who has been married twice before, to baseball player David Justice and R&B singer Eric Benet–over the holidays.

Still, Berry had remained silent about her and Martinez's happy news –despite flashing a bling-y custom ring — until just recently.

Opening up to Extra at an event last Saturday, the Dark Tide star laughed when asked about her engagement to Martinez. "Who knew? I swore [marriage] off, right?"

Added Berry, "Never say never, people!"

Martinez, for his part, finally confirmed the couple's engagement in March, telling Miami.com, "Yes, of course we're engaged!"

Prior to meeting the actor-turned-restauranteur, a source told Us that Berry really had "given up" on marriage–but changed her tune as soon as she got to know Martinez, and saw how wonderful a father he would make to Nahla, her 4-year-old daughter.

"She trusts Olivier," the source shared. "He makes her feel safe. He's a keeper!"
