Ask any woman, sometimes your natural hair needs a break. For Gabrielle Union, that meant tossing her weave out and allowing celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims – the man behind Lupita Nyong’o’s gorgeous short styles – to work his magic on her mane for the Oscars this past weekend.
“I took my weave out and got creative with my natural hair,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “@larryjarahsims is a master magician #theprocess”
By manipulating Union’s long, dark tresses, Sims twisted her hair in a sophisticated half-up, half-down style. Check out more pictures of Union’s Oscars look after the jump.
