Leslie Odom Jr: Cornrow Braided Hairstyle

4.0 4 Star

Leslie Odom Jr looked seriously dapper on the Oscars 2021 red carpet wearing a gold suit and cornrow braided hairstyle. Complemented with a neat tache and grown-out stubble, it’s the perfect mix of casual and smart grooming.

MFH says

We’ve seen the Hamilton star experiment with cornrows and braiding in the past and he never has a hair out of place and always sports perfectly symmetrical styles. Kudos to his barber for those sharp edges!

We love how the actor and singer is waving the flag for natural Afro hairstyles on the red carpet.

  • Find a barber that is experienced with Afro hair.
  • Ask for tight cornrows or braids.
  • Leslie Odom Jr’s hairstyle features sharp edges and the sides are taken close to the head.
  • The barber should use a razor or clippers (without a guard) to create detailing.
  • Cornrows and braids can be low maintenance and protect the hair as they can be kept in place for a long period of time.
  • Afro hair needs nourishing so apply a natural shea oil, butter or hair mask to keep it looking its best.
