About Gabrielle Union
Recognized as one of today's hottest stars, Gabrielle Union continues to shine both on and off screen.
Her latest role is an off-screen one as an owner of Flawless by Gabrielle Union. Inspired by her own experience with hair products over the years, Union wanted to create a brand for every person with textured hair who hasn’t quite found their perfect product yet.
“I wanted to help women have good hair days. It’s really as simple as that. Being on set for hair and makeup means I’m always switching it up, trying new products and experimenting, so you name it and I’ve probably tried it. When I really thought about the products that I used in my own hair, there was always something that I wished I could have added, changed or tweaked. For so many of us, we just hadn’t found that perfect line, and this was my opportunity to create a line that was perfect for women with textured hair. It’s all about versatility and healthy hair. Flawless products can be combined and cocktailed in creative ways, so we can change it up without damaging our hair. Every aspect of the brand - from the oil blend to how we cocktail products together - reinforces that. Each product is lightly fragranced with a scent that I hand-selected to include some of my favorite fragrance notes. You’ll notice bright, sparkling citrus top notes with a warm base of floral and amber notes for a scent experience that makes you happy to do your hair.”
