Sometimes, you just gotta go BOLD with the hair on your head. Because every now and then we all feel the call of the hair-change gods, and as we all know, they must be appeased. And on that note, we just heard that Gabrielle Union debuted a new bob! Yesss.

She admitted that it was a totally spontaneous decision, which just makes us love it even more. “We (she and her stylist) just did this like a few minutes ago. 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,” she revealed to People at the Essence 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Awards Gala. Union has typically kept her hair on the longer side (at the very least, shoulder-length), so this was a big change up.

And ummmmmmm, we’re obsessed, too! This bob is PERFECT for welcoming spring and looks amazing with Union’s facial structure. There is just something so utterly fresh and timeless about this kind of cut. Also, are you seeing that sparkling Prada gown?! This girl is all class.

Thanks for inspiring us to make daring choices, Gabrielle! There’s no time like the present to just totally go for it when it comes to our hair. And the great thing about hair is…it always grows back. So no harm, no foul.
