But it’s the latest in a long line of strong looks for the R&B star.
But aside from this extreme colour, the 360 waves he’s sporting – which used to be called “brush waves” as it involves a hella lot of brushing – is a popular look for blokes (and lots of ladies) who want to embrace their natural texture.
If there was a Hair Hall of Fame, MFH would be inducting him into it, pronto.
- Usher’s bright orange dyed Afro hair with 360 waves isn’t a look for anyone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time and money on maintenance.
- Usher’s hair is cropped short, and has a sharp line up.
- He also has a semicircle shaved just above his ear for extra interest.
- For the bright orange colour, the hair will need to be bleached.
- After that the orange colour will be applied.
- Be aware that bleaching your hair strips everything out of it, so it’ll need serious TLC.
- This is not a colour you can do at home – you need the professionals involved.
- And you’ll need to get the regrowth attended to every couple of weeks to keep it looking fresh.

- Usher’s bright orange dyed Afro hair with 360 waves looks great, but you need to put the work in.
- For those 360 brush waves, you’ll need pomade and a brush (ideally a soft-medium boar bristle one).
- A durag is also useful to keep your hair intact while you sleep.
- Use a natural, sulfate free shampoo and conditioner before you start the brushing.
- While your hair is still damp, apply a 5p sized amount of wave cream (aka a pomade that you like).
- Starting from the crown of your head (or wherever your cowlick is) brush away and downward.
- Brush for around two minutes, making sure you’re doing it evenly all over your head.
- If you wash your hair this will ruin the wave pattern, so ideally you should limit this to a shampoo every fortnight if you can wait that long.
- Not washing your hair too much will also preserve the bright orange colour, too, which tends to fade very quickly.
