Gabrielle Union Is the Blueprint on How to Rock Curtain-Drawn Long Bangs

One thing about it, Gabrielle Union knows how to execute a jaw-dropping hairstyle moment. From protective styles and sleek bobs, the display is effortless. What takes our breath away is Union's ability to make even bangs look editorial and highbrow — which she committed to doing recently.

The actor stepped out for an appearance on The View in a crimson red getup that sparks a festive holiday mood. Union's curtain-drawn bangs and tight-knot updo speak to Chris Appleton's instructions on quickly snatching your face and setting her icon level on the highest bar. Her resident hairstylist Larry Sims is a master at framing Union's face with sculptural hairstyles and placed a detailed knotted bun atop her head with curtain-drawn bangs opening more of her face. To seal the deal on the sartorial look, makeup artist Vincent Oquendo opted for soft, feminine glam.

As we're in the Holiday season, we're sure that Union will be providing even more continuous looks and we'll be watching.
