Ncuti Gatwa: Dyed Blonde Afro Buzz Cut With Low Fade

5.0 5 Star

The new Doctor Who (and a Ken in Barbie!), Ncuti Gatwa wowed us on the red carpet with his new ‘do – a dyed blonde Afro buzz cut with low fade.

It’s a strong look, but it’s a hard yes from MFH.

MFH says

You might recognise Ncuti Gatwa from his role as gay teen Eric Effiong in popular Netflix series Sex Education. But to make an extra splash after his Dr Who announcement, Ncuti showed up at the BAFTA TV awards with this dyed blonde Afro buzz cut with low fade. And he has this look in the Barbie film!

Luckily the actor has some handy friends – the owner of Ama’s Hair Salon in North London Ama Safo who is his best friend’s Mum.

And, as he often posts pictures from the salon and shares them with his 2.7m Instagram followers, MFH can safely say Ama was responsible for his cool AF new look.

If you fancy checking it out for yourself, it’s really affordable – £15 for a men’s haircut or £7 for a beard trim.

And you never know, you might be able to compliment Ncuti on his new hair in person…

  • Ncuti Gatwa’s dyed blonde Afro buzz cut with low fade has the stand out factor due to the striking platinum colour.
  • Be prepared to visit your barber regularly to keep the buzz cut looking sharp.
  • And also note that the colour will also need weekly or fortnightly touch-ups because of regrowth. (Just as well Ncuti’s hair is done by a friend!)
  • To get the right shade of dyed blondewithout totally destroying your hair don’t attempt to do this at home. This must be left to the professionals.
  • Afro hair tends to be more prone to breakage so post-bleach TLC will need to be a regular part of your routine.
  • Ncuti Gatwa’s dyed blonde Afro buzz cut with low fade will need loads of TLC.
  • To keep the yellow tones out of your hair, you’ll need to use a really good purple shampoo to counteract any warmth in colour.
  • You’ll also need to regularly use scalp oil to ensure that area is protected so that any new hair growing through has a good chance of being strong and healthy.
  • Try not to wash it more than once a week if you can.
  • Use a nourishing deep-conditioning treatment once a week, too.
