A Moment, Please, for Gabrielle Union’s Waterfall Topknot — See Photo
Another day, another slay. Today’s focus is on the Gabrielle Union, who was determined to tug at our wigs a little bit with a slicked-back updo we just can’t quite explain. It feels like something we’ve seen before but at the same time not completely new. On January 19, Union arrived at the Season three premiere of Apple TV+’s Truth Be Told looking like a dream in a strapless sequined dress with green and purple colors on the bodice, paired with the twisted top knot.
For the premiere, it’s clear the textured hair was the star of the show, given Union’s minimal makeup and small gem earrings. The style looks like the flip bun but with more twists and turns pinned to her head for added structure. The tufts of hair poking out from the underside of the updo remind us of Tweety Bird’s hair albeit much thicker. Pardon the excessive bird references, but we can’t help but think of a rooster’s comb — those red spiky pieces that stick out from the top of their heads — in the best way possible. Quite honestly, if Union wanted to add in a few clip-in hair pieces in a red hue or even an emerald green, we feel like it would take the look to the next level.
