It's no secret that Michaela Coel suits bright and bold hair. After all, her groundbreaking show I May Destroy You sees her wearing an incredible pink wig (which was also the vehicle for an important narrative message).

Earlier this week, Coel's make-up artist Alex Babsky shared a snap of her debuting an even bolder look during her talk with Reggie Yates as part of the GQ Heroes series. The writer-actress revealed an incredible plummy magenta buzzcut and fine-art eyebrows crafted to match.

We've seen plenty of bold hair transformations so far this year – from January Jones's baby-pink bob to Priyanka Chopra's choppy fringe – but Coel has undeniably stolen the crown for the most dramatic impact.

In fact, the writer and actor is quickly becoming a true hair icon. There's just something about the buzzcut, the saturated flamingo colour of the dye and her matching eyebrows that's so striking.
