SPOTTED: Usher’s new blond ‘do.
WHERE: JDRF Imagine Gala at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
CASSIUS SAYS: We like the cut— just not on him. We’re not sure if he was trying to do something “new” and took inspiration from New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., but it comes off like he’s trying too hard. Usher, you’re a legend in your own right. You set trends, not follow them.
GET THE LOOK: If you’re interested in achieving this textured ‘do, but aren’t naturally curly, you’ll need a curl sponge and styling products. Skip the dye box and leave color application to the pros. Bleaching can dry your hair, so keep your locks in check by deep conditioning on the regular.
USE THIS: Vernon François Whipped Deep Conditioner ($39; Sephora)
STYLE IT: Comb out slightly wet hair. Then add some curl cream and start brushing in a circular motion with the curl sponge until your hair starts to coil up.
