Gabrielle Union relied on one of her favorite beauty tricks — the selfie — to get approval on her new blonde hair before debuting them on the street this week.

“New day, new job … new do,” she wrote on the first snapshot of her much-lighter locks. Since then she’s posted a few more previews of the new look before making her official debut on the set of the Chris Rock film where we first noticed Rosario Dawson‘s new hairstyle.

Though she recently told PEOPLE that she wasn’t into the honey highlights she wore for Being Mary Jane, she has gone blonde again with gusto for this new role, sporting multiples hues of highlights from pale platinum to warm caramel. And today she gave a better look at the style, showing the before-and-after transformation into her character (below).

Tell us: What do you think of Gabrielle Union as a blonde?

Hmm…go back to your dark hair, Gabby. The blonde isn’t necessarily terrible on though. But yes, black or dark brown really brings out the features more as it is more natural and yes, even exotic.

The woman i gorgeous. She could pull anything off.

I think she’s gorgeous and honestly, I think it looks good on her. I know African-American women who choose to go blonde, and it doesn’t look good on them.

Some people can pull it off and others not so much. So again, I think she looks gorgeous.

It’s horrible. Looks so unnatural. She’s too pretty for that.

LC on

I think she is gorgeous and normally doesn’t look even close to her actual age, but the highlights actually seem to age her. I prefer her with darker hair.

launchingpad on

she looks ridiculous, as do most dark skinned, dark-eyed women.

Just a thought on

Thank goodness for make-up.

KS on

don’t like it…but then again I don’t have to go out in public like that

Deanna on

I actually like her new hair. I mean, she was gorgeous with dark hair, and she looks gorgeous with blonde too!

I hate it when they say “they went blonde”. I’m sorry but Beyonce, Kim K and Gabrielle Black HAIR CAN NEVER BE BLONDE.
