Mahershala Ali is steadily becoming one of those faces you can’t really escape.
The Californian-native is a relative newcomer to Hollywood fame, despite a consistent history of celebrated performance on the silver screen. You probably know him as the perpetually-suited political aide Remy Danton from House of Cards.
But his recent presence in social media can be attributed to an acclaimed performance in Moonlight. Ali copped an Academy Award and Oscar for his acting chops in this film, the latter of which is a historic first – he’s the first Muslim to do so.
Besides his acting, he’s no sartorial slouch. Ali attends awards ceremonies in various iterations of casual and formalwear, and never seems particularly fazed by the changes to the dress code. He looks at home in just about anything. This guide will give you a sense of how he pulls it off and whether it’ll work for you, right after you binge watch the first season of Luke Cage.
Ali doesn’t indulge follicular extravagance. In almost every appearance on the red-carpet, he’s rocking a high-fade buzzcut, or a complete skin buzzcut.
The closely-buzzed look complements his lean, angular features, and cleans up his appearance even if he’s on the more casual end of the spectrum.
This is a great option for men recovering from the psychological wounds of hair loss, and for guys who resent having to sacrifice precious minutes drying their hair every morning.
