Currently on the small screen in The Lazarus Project, Paapa Essiedu is the latest acting talent to also catch our eye for his style, too. And his on-point buzz cut with skin fade with that amazing, precision beard is seriously chic.

Why We Love It:

He first came MFH’s attention (sans beard) as Kwame in I May Destroy You. And we knew then he had star factor. And now Paapa Essiedu’s buzz cut with skin fade is giving us all the haircut feels because of its precise lines.

Bar a time in 2016 when he let his natural coils grow out a little, Paapa has tended to stick to very short, cropped or buzz cut styles.

And as stylish as he looks with his super-sleek haircut, it’d be great to see him let his natural hair Afro hair grow out more in the future.

Let’s hope that casting directors/directors don’t stand in his way…
