Omari Douglas: Natural Afro With Tapered Sides

4.0 4 Star

A precise, natural Afro with tapered sides looks amazing on Omari Douglas. Even though it’s a world away from his character Roscoe’s hairstyle in Channel 4 drama It’s A Sin, it still has strong throwback vibes to it.

MFH says

We’re very much here for Omari Douglas’ natural Afro with tapered sides. It’s the right amount of retro and we love that he’s embracing his natural hair in all its brushed out glory.

To keep medium to long Afro hair in good condition, we recommend investing in some quality hair treatments.

  • To get a tapered afro you’ll want to ask your barber for no shorter than a Grade 1 on the sides, a rounded top and a shape up with a cut throat razor.
  • The top cut is usually done with freehand clippers and the shape is softened with scissors.
  • Your Afro haircut will need regular maintenance from your barber. You’ll want to be getting a cut every 4 weeks to keep it looking sharp.
  • Use a hair pick to comb hair upwards and outwards to maintain the shape of your natural, tapered Afro.
  • Then smooth into shape with your palms and a dab of matte paste. Go steady as you want hair to have hold, but not be stiff.
  • We recommend using a leave-in deep conditioning treatment once a week to keep your Afro hair in great condition.
