OK, this just isn’t fair anymore, y’all. Gabrielle Union, her face, her beautiful family — all of it. Her hair, in particular, has got me feeling especially jealous right now. On April 10, the actor posted a carousel of photos to Instagram from a pool, where she’s posed in a royal-blue bikini, a full face of virtually flawless makeup, and wavy hair down to there.
The post is simply captioned, “#SundayFunday,” but I most certainly am not having fun staring in envy while I write this from my New York City shoebox — sorry, apartment — most likely miles from the nearest pool with no makeup on and probably the messiest bedhead known to mankind. Because she just… looks like that. Stylist Thomas Christos Kikis knows what I mean. He commented on Union’s post, “Not fair. This is why I don’t come to pool parties at the Wades’.”
Unsurprisingly, Gabrielle credited Larry Sims as the hairstylist behind these defined-yet-laid-back beach waves. He’s Union’s business partner for her hair-care brand, Flawless by Gabrielle Union, so I can only imagine her hair is laced with more than a few of the products they created together.
Union’s beat was done by makeup artist Tasha Reiko Brown and her swimsuit is from none other than Kim Kardashian’s brand, Skims — now, the only question left is: how the hell do I get my own face and hair to look like that?
