It's no secret that Michaela Coel of I May Destroy You fame and glory suits pink and purple hair.

After all, the show itself features her rocking an incredible pink wig (which, by way, was the vehicle for a super important narrative message) .

But her makeup artist Alex Babsky shared a snap earlier this week of Michaela with an absolutely incredible plummy magenta buzzcut and fine-art eyebrows crafted to match. And errrr, wow?

So far we've seen stars shedding their locks and opting for close cuts (hey, Halsey!), not to mention a tonne of super bright hair dye transformations (remember when literally every celeb under the sun used lockdown to dye their hair pink from Dua Lipa to Nicole Poturalski and beyond?).

But so far, it's been rare to see such a badass combination of looks on one person. Michaela's quickly becoming an absolute hair icon. There's just something about the buzzcut, the saturated flamingo colour of the dye and her matching eyebrows that's so striking. And franky, I'm here for every switch-up she makes.

Here's what Alex Babsky had to say:

"I did some 💜PURPLE💜 eyebrows on stupendous Michaela Coel to match her brand new hair, for her #GQHEROES talk with @regyates, in which she discusses representing the realities of London life in her groundbreaking show, & taking ownership of her work. It’s a really enjoyable & thought-provoking talk - if you have a spare 25mins I’d totally recommend it"

I'm on tenterhooks for her next move.
