Gabrielle Union has worn countless hairstyles from sleek shoulder-length looks to long beachy waves—and whatever the look or occasion, the actress always seems to look amazing. And now, Gabrielle Union has the fiercest chin-grazing bob we’ve ever seen.
It all went down last Thursday when Union hosted the Essence 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards Gala in Los Angeles and it literally made us stop in our tracks.
Take one look at the video below from celeb hairstylist Larry Sims, who was the master behind her new cut, and you’ll be mesmerized, too. Gabrielle also posted a photo collage of the evening in her stunning Prada gown which really complimented her cut.
TBH, what we love most about Gabrielle’s hair isn’t the fact that it’s new—celebs get a bob practically everyday. But we love that she spontaneously decided to make the move. We still have anxiety when our hair stylist picks up the scissors to trim our ends, but Gabby has enough confidence to let Sims cut off inches on a whim. Such a boss move.
She told People, “We were like, stop, ‘Let’s go shorter. Let’s go shorter.’ Larry Sims just took a hatchet to it and just hacked it off.” And before the actress and wife of NBA star Dwyane Wade knew it, “it was to the chin,” says Union. “Then [he said] let’s go even shorter in the back. I love it. I’m obsessed right now.”
