Gabrielle Union Goes for the Big Chop

Gabrielle Union goes all-natural with her new summer haircut.

The 48-year-old actress shared a series of photos on Instagram to show off her new look and reveal her “summer chop.”

“So, I did a thing,” she began her caption. “The movies always show women cutting their hair when all is lost but I wanted to know the feeling of making a change when things are gravy,” she continued.

The actress also added hashtags like #SummerChop #FlawlessChop and #FlawlessCut onto her post.

Her haircut grabbed the attention and praise of many of her friends and followers including Tracee Ellis Ross, Ashanti, Christina Milian, and Tia Mowry.

The actress also owns a haircare line called Flawless by Gabrielle Union and has spoken out about the importance of knowing how to take care of natural Black hair in Hollywood.

She has talked about how important it is to her to find stylists who can work with her hair because many stylists don’t know how to properly care for Black hair.

“They know my hair, they know what it takes to keep it healthy. They know what can cause damage quickly. So we create rituals in the hair and makeup trailer. Before work, we treat my hair. After work, we treat my hair. We do different steams every few days just to make sure it’s healthy and I survive a project,” said Union in an interview with MadameNoire.
