Ashley Banjo: Close Crop With Mid Fade

3.0 3 Star

Looking cool on the red carpet, Ashley Banjo’s hairstyle – a close crop with mid fade is a great, zero-fuss option for the busy dancer and TV judge.

MFH says

Ashley Banjo’s close crop with mid-fade is super cool and low-maintenance. Be aware that it requires a barber with great skills to get that perfect mid-fade gradient.

If you’re easily bored, though, you can play around with different fades

But, cool as this cut is, it’s a shame Ashley felt he had to conform to forge a successful TV career.

He told GQ Hype: ‘At one point I had cornrows, braids. And that was authentically me.

‘But I remember thinking, “There’s no one else on TV with plaits like me. Can I see myself hosting prime-time BBC One like this? Maybe not.”

We hope that Ashley feels he can play around with more natural hairstyles in the near future…
