Gabrielle Union’s 2017 CFDA Awards Hair Is a Major Win – Vogue.com
Gabrielle Union has a premature case of Saturday night fever. With a slight nod to the ’70s, the actress calibrated her beauty to her glittering Rodarte ensemble on the 2017 CFDA Awards red carpet: a knee-skimming gold sequin jacket, crystal-threaded sheer top, studded black trousers, and gold statement choker.
Union’s ageless glow served as the perfect canvas, her eyes shaded with a black-gold wash of pigment, cheeks lightly contoured, and lips stained with a wine-tone pigment. But what elevated her look to head-swiveling effect was her fluffy cloud of shoulder-grazing, two-toned curls. Created by hairstylist Larry Sims, her wispy and buoyant tendrils stood out amidst a sea of slick, controlled styles.
Union has long been a hair chameleon, employing extensions to whip through a lineup of lengths and shapes with dizzying speeds for major appearances. But the Being Mary Jane star—who recently launched her own hair-care line Flawless by Gabrielle Union—has been turning up the volume on her textured styles of late. And whether she’s snapping selfies at her leisure, or balancing the proportions of a black tie ensemble, tonight’s results are proof that when it comes to a knockout hair statement, bigger may just be better.
