Gabrielle Union's New Blonde Hair Is The Best Summer 2016 Transformation Yet — PHOTOS


Summer must be the official season for blonde hair, because one celebrity after another is lightening up their locks. Most recently, Gabrielle Union went blonde, and the new look is definitely one of her most dramatic yet. The actress follows in the footsteps of Brooklyn Beckham, Demi Lovato, and Shay Mitchell, who have all dabbled with blonde hair recently. So who will be the next star to go blonde? Because you know it's only a matter of time before another brunette crosses over to the light side.

The 43-year-old has been flaunting her new 'do all over Instagram, and she is obviously totally digging it. The photos reveal a caramel blonde ombre that starts with her jet black roots and gradually gets lighter as it turns from brown to blonde. Not only did she opt for a new hair color, but she also debuted a new haircut, too. Talk about a total makeover, huh? The actress swapped her signature long luscious locks for a wavy shoulder-grazing bob, and it suits her better than any other style ever has, at least IMO.

This isn't the first time Union dyed her hair blonde, but it sure has been a while since she brightened up her tresses. Check out the gorgeous new style.

I'm totally obsessed.

Gabrielle has always kept it super fun when it comes to her hair. Let's take a look at some of her best styles.
