Even before Gabrielle Union relaunched her hair-care brand, Flawless, we were always waiting with bated breath for the actor and entrepreneur’s next hair move. She’s known for switching things up frequently and dramatically, making it impossible for us to pick a favorite of her hairstyles since she looks so… well… flawless in each of them. And now, after months of switching between beautiful braid extensions and her short (but growing) natural curls, Union has debuted a new style and given her fans multiple looks at it.
Monday, September 21 kicks off our week-long 2020 Best of Beauty virtual event series! To join us, RSVP here before it’s too late to enjoy tutorials and panels featuring some of the best experts in the industry, such as Justine Marjan, Priscilla Ono, and more.
Typically, when celebrities change up their hairstyles, we’re lucky if we get even one clear shot of the new look on their Instagram Stories or grids. But Union has blessed her followers with not one but two carousels full of photos showing off her new curtain bangs.
In the photos, shared to give a better look at what she wore for a remote appearance on The View, we can see that Union now has the cutest curtain bangs. They’re straightened and split in the middle, with each side partially covering her brows and reaching the lower curves of her cheeks.
Stylist and Flawless collaborator Larry Sims was tagged in the posts, the first of which has four slides, and the second of which has five. Sims topped off the curtain bangs with a tiny topknot, and the sleek look pairs beautifully with Union’s makeup, done by makeup artist Malika James. We’re especially into the pink eye shadow on Union’s lids and bright blue liner on her lower lash line, which perfectly pick up the colors of her silky Christian Wijnants outfit.
Union gave a few more peeks at the look on her Instagram Stories, in which she celebrated how far her natural hair has come with gifs that read, “Healthy hair come through!”
Healthy is an understatement; this hair is also downright inspirational. We suddenly can’t help but consider curtain bangs for ourselves.
