Stop What You're Doing And Look At Gabrielle Union's Epic Hair At The CFDAs

Her Studio 54-inspired look was 💯.

Forget Ladies’ Night. Monday was Gabrielle Union’s night.

Union attended the 2017 CFDA Awards in New York City wearing a stunning sparkly Rodarte suit, chartreuse eye makeup and the grooviest, most perfect ’70s-inspired hairdo we’ve seen in a long time.


Union’s mane has received a ton of affection lately. She drew cheers for wearing her hair naturally and even debuted her own line of hair products specifically formulated for textured hair back in March.

Celebrity hairstylist Larry Sims was the man responsible for her latest iconic moment, and explained to HuffPost exactly how he achieved the disco-worthy ‘do.

Goals, with Dwyane Wade.

“Gabrielle has been rocking her natural texture,” he said. “I gave her an exaggerated version of her natural. We were inspired by Studio 54. I tipped her hair with a tent of color and added hair clips to match her texture. I then took a Mason Pearson Brush to her mane and made it lioness-like. It was the perfect finish to the Rodarte ensemble.”

Union was just as in love with that ensemble as we are with her hair. On a photo of the coat posted by her stylist, she commented, “I have the coat on and I’m still gagging.”

We are, too, Gabrielle. We are, too.
