Gabrielle Union is many things: an amazing actress, ’90s icon, an entrepreneur, a mother to one of the cutest celebrity babies, and a great source of hair inspiration. With a quick scroll through her Instagram, you can see all the stunning hairstyles she’s worn — including fishtail-braided pigtails and a retro high ponytail with flipped ends — that constantly keep us on our toes. On July 24, she revealed a new super-cute, curly pixie cut that took our breaths away. Now, the actress is switching styles on us once again with jumbo box braids that cascade toward her waist.
The actor shared an Instagram carousel with a trio of selfies showing off her freshly braided hairstyle and gorgeous face. She opted for large braids with wide parts — there seem to be about ten braids on her head. Hairstylist Larri ensured that her parts were clean and all flyaways were slicked down for these braids. The jumbo braids are definitely on the longer side with tips that can’t be seen in the photo but that definitely fall somewhere around her waist.
These neat braids look amazing, but the star of the show may be her swooped baby hairs. Larri slicked down her edges along her hairline, and we’re willing to bet she probably employed the Flawless Repairing Edge Control from Union’s own haircare brand to mold them into place.
As for makeup, Union kept it cute but simple with liner, defined brows, and a little bit of eye shadow that were painted on by makeup artist Tasha Brown. Union’s face looks as flawless as ever with a radiant glow peeking through her makeup.
All in all, Union doesn’t disappoint with her hairstyle changes. She constantly gives us something new to be excited for, and as always, we will be here not-so-silently praising every new look.
