I hope you're as excited as I am to see Marvel's Black Panther movie premiering Friday, February 16, 2018. The movie is going to be beyond dope ,and being a barber who loves fades with natural hair textures I'm super hyped to see this movie in all it's glory. I predict that this is going to be Marvel's highest grossing film yet, finally a big budget film done for a minority audience. Before I get into the the haircuts though I do want to mention Ruth Carter (@iamruthecarter) and Ikire Jones (@ikirejones) they killed it with the design and styling in the movie, the costumes and clothing are absolutely amazing. So without further ado lets get into this blog.
Michael B. Jordan (@michaelbjordan) is rocking both locs and a fade. The locs are about medium length and the type of fade he is wearing is a shadow fade. If you read my other article what is a shadow fade, you would know exactly what I'm talking about. Also notice the front edge-up is left very natural, this is always a matter of taste and a personal choice. There is no rule that says one must always have a crispy edge up, and in the case of flowing locs with a fade I think it looks great.
Here we can see a side look at Michael B. Jordan aka Erik Kilmonger's haircut. In this picture we can see that his cut is faded all the way to the skin on the sides. Which means his haircut is a medium/low skin fade with medium length locs on the top. Chadwick Boseman's (@chadwickboseman) character is rocking a low even haircut pretty much. The length of the haircut is about a 3 1/2 and is ever so slightly tapered around the edges. The sideburns would come to a point and stop just below the start of the ear or the corner of his eye if he didn't have a beard, but since he does they continue right into his well groomed but natural looking beard. Also notice that his edge-up in the back is squared.
Danai (@danaigurira) and Florence (@florencekasumba) are rocking the bald heads but what I love about this look is that it accentuates there facial features also notice the tattooed hairline that comes to a point in the front, super dope. I feel like I'm looking at royalty. Afro futurism at it's finest. Lupita Nyong'o (@lupitanyongo) is wearing short locs/twists. I am not an expert in locs or twists so if you know the style please let me know in the comment section. I also like the auburn tips that help to highlight the hairstyle.
Daniel Kaluuya's character W'Kabi is wearing a very high skin fade with to wave length on top. With a haircut like this I definitely recommend a strong crisp edge-up otherwise the haircut looks like a complete mistake. The front line really brings the haircut together. Im really diggin the tribal facial markings and his wardrobe again shout out to Ruth Carter for that. Daniel Kaluuya (is an actor on the rise by the way I loved the episode he's featured in on Netflix's Black Mirror. Also if you missed the movie Get Out please stop reading this and go watch it then come back and thank me in the comment section. He killed it in that movie and it's one of my favorite films of all time.
For now my good friends I'll wrap it up with this picture. Look at all the fades, braids, locs, mohawks, and twists in this picture. This is a barber's dream right here. I love everything about this picture. I hope you all can go and check out this movie and pay attention to all the wonderful details. Hopefully this movie can be an inspiration for you, it's already been one for me and I haven't even watched it yet. Thanks for taking time out of your busy lives to peep this article as well. Don't forget to like, comment, and share this article, and if you have any reasonable questions be sure to ask. Until next time. I'm out like a fat kid playing dodgeball.
