Here is the caption Gabrielle Union used when she first showed off her new haircut. She was dancing to Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” and showed off the newfound freedom she experiences in her video.
“CRAZY for my new haircut from the hair guru @larryjarahsims 1st time I’ve EVER significantly cut my OWN hair in my life and I LOVE IT!!! Not a wig or a weave… wanted something new and different so I did the damn thing and you cant tell me nada.”
The response to Gabrielle’s new look has been extremely positive.
As summer is here it isn’t unusual for many women to cut their hair shorter, but the new shorter look on Gabrielle using her real hair and not just wearing a short wig is exciting.
More black women are ditching weaves and wigs and enjoying the freedom of their real, natural hair. Gabrielle has made the journey and not only does she love it, but Larry showed her how to blow dry it into the desired style. He also showcased many styling products that Gabrielle is using to keep her sleek, chic look.
