Bold, diverse and outspoken, Gabrielle Union is one of our favourite bad-ass black women in Hollywood who doesn’t shy away from switching things up once in a while. This hair chameleon has probably conquered every hairstyle under the sun; whether opting for a chic bob or just showing up with her natural curls. Look her up on the web and wham! You’ll be spoilt for choice for your next hairstyle. We’ve taken our pick of the 4 best Gabrielle Union hairstyles.
1. Rocking That Bob
They say, “A good haircut can solve a whole load of problems”, but this image here makes us want to believe that a great haircut can reap up all the possible hair envy as well! Look at her, showing us all how to slay the bob at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar’s party. A daring outfit to go with it, this cut was edgy, modern and added just the right amount of drama. Love it a little too much? We know you do! You can rock this Gabrielle Union hairstyle too, with a wig! Check out the best bob haircuts for African hair
2. Gabrielle Goes Au Naturel
Indeed, curls run the world! Throwback to Paris Fashion Week and here’s Miss Union channeling her inner Goddess. Everything about this look screams sexy, powerful and natural. Volume and colour being key to this look, be sure to use a great dry shampoo to add texture to those curls apart from giving your scalp a good cleanse without having to use any water.
3. Locking In ‘Em Braids
Take time to revel over this braid style, then recreate it. If you’re quite like Gabrielle who thinks braids are the ultimate, no-heat, protective style for your hair, we couldn’t agree more! Apart from the obvious protection, these braids will last you a good 6-8 weeks depending on how frequently you shampoo. Gabrielle sports micro braids here. We are aiming for a puff at the crown; braid and twist your crown section securing the shape of the updo with bobby pins. Microbraid the rest of your hair and leave it loose.

4. Volume On Tail
Stealing the limelight with this natural hair number at the Emmys, Gabrielle showed us just how an underappreciated hairstyle as basic as the ponytail could transform into something so glamourous and sophisticated. Embracing her natural hair, she wore this power pony with some serious volume and teased bouncy curls at the back; leaving it slicked back at the front and pulled tightly at the nape of her neck. We cannot stop staring! Plus what hairstyle didn’t get its due when paired with a Zuhair Murad black gown? We submit to her style spell, totally!
