Riz Ahmed: Sound of Metal Bleached Blonde Hairstyle

3.0 3 Star

Actor Riz Ahmed deserves more than an Oscar for the bleached blonde hairstyle he wore for his role as Ruben Stone in film Sound of Metal.

MFH says

This bleached blonde hairstyle from Sound of Metal couldn’t be further from Riz Ahmed’s usual impeccably groomed look.

In this film still, Riz wears his hair with a textured, matte finish which you can get with products like texture powder and matte wax and clay. Top tip: keep it matte to keep it looking rock n’ roll.

Use nourishing hair masks and treatments to keep dyed hair in good condition and opt for a purple shampoo to keep the platinum shade clean, not brassy.

  • Achieving the same colour as Riz Ahmed’s hair can be very tricky with a dark base, so make sure you go to a professional colourist rather than dyeing your hair at home.
  • This colour will need to be maintained by a colourist regularly, as well as by you at home!
  • When it comes to the cut, ask your barber to create a textured crop.
  • To keep maintain your bleached blonde hair, make sure you use a purple shampoo. This will stop it from going a brassy/yellow colour.
  • Bleaching your hair can dry your hair out. Use a nourishing treatment or hair mask to hydrate and nourish hair.
  • To get that lived-in look never work with freshly washed hair. The character is all about rock n’ roll, gritty texture. Use clay, powder or wax to create hold and texture.
