Gabrielle Union is “obsessed” with her new ‘do — and so are we! The Being Mary Jane star is currently rocking a fresh cut with side-swept feathered layers that have us swooning! Even while draped in a daring asymmetrical ensemble from Gaultier Paris at the Vanity Fair Oscars party Sunday night, it was her banging bob that captivated.

This is isn’t the first time we’ve seen the beauty slay the choppy new look created by her mane man Larry Sims. She first debuted a water-waved version last week at the ESSENCE Women in Hollywood Awards that also had us in awe.


“We wanted to do something really chic, fly and fresh and switch it up from the typical Mary Jane look we’re used to seeing her in,” Larry told Hype Hair.

He also shared how he created the fab look. He first used a feather razor to create the piecey chin-length bob. Once he achieved the desired shape, he set her waves in motion, loosely wrapping her hair in opposite directions and away from her hairline for a wavy finish.

To add even more movement, he blew out her hair with a dryer and applied Schwarzkopf got2b Mess-Merizing Hairspray for added texture.  For the sleek look, he said he laid her edges with Smooth ‘N Shine Edge Smoothing Pomade and finished off with Schwarzkopf got2b Glam Force hair spray.

We can’t wait to see what he does next with the edgy new look!
