There are two things that are undeniably true about Gabrielle Union: She doesn’t look her age and her hair is always on point. Long, medium length, short — shorter, ol’ girl has the hair game on lock and she proved as much again last night.

The “Being Mary Jane” star stepped on the red carpet for the annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood gala in Los Angeles with a cut that was shorter than usual, and apparently totally spontaneous.

“We just did this like a few minutes ago,” the 44-year-old told People magazine Thursday. “We were like, stop, ‘Let’s go shorter. Let’s go shorter.’ Larry Sims just took a hatchet to it and just hacked it off.”

The result: a chin-length, choppy jet black bob with soft waves that made the brown beauty’s cheek bone stand out even more.

We can only image the head-turning reaction from attendees as they saw Gabby’s new look. Even she couldn’t stop looking at herself in the mirror.

“I didn’t want to leave [the house] because I was sort of staring at it,” she admitted. “I love it.”
