Gabrielle Union (opens in new tab) is loving her new look.
The 48-year-old actress debuted her short, natural curls in an Instagram post on Saturday, in which she shared the story behind her big chop decision. And, spoiler alert, that story is actually a drama-free, non-story—which, as Union (opens in new tab) pointed out, is exactly why the timing of the haircut is so important.
"So, I did a thing," Union wrote, along with the smiling, blushing and waving emoji. "The movies always show women cutting their hair when all is lost but I wanted to know the feeling of making a change when things are gravy."
