Is summer here yet? We don’t mean to rush the season but when we saw this ‘gram post from actress Gabrielle Union-Wade we couldn’t help but crave warm-weather style season. And, it looks like the star is too by captioning the shot: “Dear summer hair”. So let’s dissect the style shall, we? It’s all about lush curls (courtesy of a Twist Out) and a stunning profile view on this coif. Notice how sides are parted into triangular sections that are then twisted into “knots.” But wait, there’s more! Prior to ends being tucked under each “knot” to secure, loose lengths are braided and wrapped around the base of each knot. Gorgeous!
