Another day, another slay for Gabrielle Union. The America’s Got Talent judge basically shut the red carpet down for the show’s season 14 finale Wednesday (Sept. 18) night. The actress simply stunned in a plunging silver sequinned metallic gown and nude beat.

But it was her new bob that won the night. A bob typically offers up a timeless, classic look — especially for beauties with round faces like hers. But, the AGT judge seriously stepped up the wow factor with a blunt cut and voluminous texture.


Hair props go out to her go-to hairstylist Larry Sims for coiffing the edgy ‘do. “The dress inspired the look,” Larry told Hype Hair exclusively. “It had a ’70s disco vibe, so I wanted to create a textured look with a modern twist.”

While a cut this fire definitely requires a professional touch, you can still play up your own hair’s texture by ditching the flat iron and blowing out hair on medium-heat using a heat protectant.

Of course, Larry used Gabrielle’s own Flawless haircare collection to slay her ‘do. “I used Flawless Blow Dry Cream ($19) for texture & Flawless Oil Drops ($25) for flyaways,” he said.
