Why We Love It:

It probably won’t surprise you that an equally celebrated hairstylist is behind superstar Grime artist Stormzy’s close crop with skin fade.

Yup, Stormzy’s hair is attended to by celebrated Black barber, Mark Maciver from SliderCuts, who also happens to give Tinie Tempah and Anthony Joshua their signature styles.

So what are the secrets behind 28-year-old Stormzy’s look? His barber, Mark explained to that he’s a no fuss kinda guy.

“Before I first started cutting Stormzy’s hair, he used to get one gradient level all over,” Mark confided. “When I cut his hair for the first time, I could see that a skin fade would be a more suitable style for him – he allowed me to do whatever I felt was best.

“I tried out different levels and found the one I felt suited him the most. We changed the style of his hairline from something quite curved to a straighter shape, as it is now, which suits his bone structure. Similarly, with his hair lower on top, a classic skin fade adds to both the sharpness and timelessness of the look.”

Sharp and timeless – the perfect adjectives we like to hear when it comes to hair!
