Gabrielle Union, 48, shows off short new haircut: 'Summer chop' – Yahoo Life

Gabrielle Union is soaking up the summer with a fresh haircut. 
The actress, 48, took to Instagram to post a series of chic photographs of herself revealing her short "summer chop." Dressed in a black-and-white dotted dress and sporting large gold hoop earrings, matching necklaces and a bold red lip, Union smiled for the camera as she showed off the new 'do.
"So, I did a thing," Union captioned the photo, explaining that the new haircut was an expression of joy, rather than negativity. "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. It hits different and it's foreign to me but I love this new new." Union added the hashtags "summer chop" "flawless chop" and "flawless cut" to the post. 
Union's haircut garnered plenty of praise from followers and friends, including Tracee Ellis Ross, Zooey Deschanel, Alyssa Milano and Kerri Washington.
Union, who owns the haircare line Flawless by Gabrielle Union, has been outspoken about her own struggles with having natural hair in Hollywood. She frequently came across stylists who didn't understand how to properly care for Black hair, and ultimately decided to strictly work with stylists she trusts.
"They know my hair, they know what it takes to keep it healthy. They know what can cause damage quickly. So we create rituals in the hair and makeup trailer. Before work, we treat my hair. After work, we treat my hair. We do different steams every few days just to make sure it’s healthy and I survive a project," explained Union in an interview with MadameNoire, Yahoo Life previously reported. "But I was able to do that the longer I’ve been in the union and the business by putting my stylists in my contract. So there can be no funny business."

Lily, 17, and Evie, 15, who live in Atlanta, honed their cooking skills on Food Network’s Chopped Junior (Lily), and Fox’s Masterchef Junior (Evie), and decided to put their expertise to good use participating in a baking campaign to help turn their homestate of Georgia blue. “Once you get a taste for making a difference in the world, you can’t stop,” Lily tells Yahoo Life. After the success of the Bake Back Better campaign, the sisters started to think about other people they could help.They reached out to New American Pathways, an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization that helps refugees. New American Pathways told the teens that they would appreciate it if they could fill 100 backpacks with school supplies for the refugee children. “We ended up getting 240 filled backpacks,” says Lily. “Knowing that each backpack would be held by a kid that might have not had a backpack at all felt really good, and I was excited to know that hopefully we’d be able to fuel their love of learning.” No matter how small you might feel like your voice is,” says Lily, “just know that you can make a difference in your community. You just have to go for it.”
