This rant is going to come off as hate but it’s really coming from a place of concern. If you haven’t yet seen Good Deeds or Think Like a Man yet, don’t consider this a spoiler; it’s more like a heads up on the terrible weave you will see on Gabrielle Union, and truthfully for no reason.

Backing up just a bit, I used to not be a fan of Gaby. I got tired of seeing her in the same roles over and over, especially because I didn’t care for those characters much. But that all changed when I saw her in Daddy’s Little Girls. I became a fan of the actress, partially because I saw a little bit of myself in her character and partially because I fell in love with the curly, asymmetrical bob she rocked in the film. Off camera, Gabrielle usually opts for longer, flowing waves, but regardless of the length, her hair is always on point. And that is why I can’t understand the terrible hair she’s had in her last two films.

I have never, and I mean never seen such a bad unintentional weave on-screen in my life until Good Deeds. Throughout all 110 minutes of the film I kept waiting for them to discuss her hair because I sincerely thought it was a part of the plot somehow, like her character was going to go natural or something by the end and ditch the bad yaki. But no such luck, somehow the hairstylist on the set thought it was cool to have a hair piece attached to the back of Gabrielle’s head that didn’t blend in color, texture, or style, as I sat there thinking, really? So we’re not going to discuss this?

Fast forward to Think Like a Man and I had Good Deeds déjà vu. Without giving too much away, Gabrielle Union was a pretty successful real estate agent in the movie and it was supposed to be her boyfriend who was stuck in his college years. However I couldn’t help but notice Gaby’s hair was somehow stuck in a time where you’d let your friend just glue some tracks in your hair for the night because you didn’t know any better. There was all sorts of buckling around the edges, poofyness at the crown, and just a cheap texture to the hair. I’m really curious if Remy was out of stock during filming because there was just no reason for that sad excuse for hair when you had Taraji P. Henson rocking a banging medium-length ‘do with her own locks.

I’m only calling this out because I love Gabrielle now and I can’t bear to see her weave butchered in another feature-length film. Next time, she might want to build her own hairstylist into the contract because they’ve been playing her in the hair department in her last two movies.

Did you notice Gabrielle Union’s hair was a little off in her last two films?

    I thought the same thing ! Gabby is forever rocking bad weaves in movies ! It’s shameful cause I know she had some money and the studio had some money cause that wasn’t a cheap black film. The whole time I was watching “Think Like A Man…” all i thought was how incredibly bad her hair was. I was actually having a debate about which was worst: Gabby’s hair or Meagan Goode’s too light far from right eye concealer ? They both were neck and neck on the beauty sin scale !

      @ Jadakiss: Megan Goode lives in that very pale under eye concealer. That is my freaking pet peeve!!! I mean surely she knows that it’s not the right shade for her and that it shows up crazy when cameras flash and in certain lighting. Wish she’d stop that. But she’s beautiful though.

    OMG I was thinking the same thing after I saw Mr. Deeds and then Think Like a Man…her edges were bad, like no one had some water and a brush…Yeah I love Gabby and think she is beautiful but she needs to step in and not just go with the flow when it comes to her hair.

  • I did notice it in Think Like a Man. If she didn’t wear weaves in these movies, she wouldn’t have this problem ;)
