Dwyane Wade has had a very productive couple of months, at least in terms of his hair. Like so many celebrities, the NBA legend has looked to bleach and dye as a way to have a little fun while staying safe at home. In May, he dyed his hair bright red, which faded to a fabulous shade of pink come June. And just last week, Wade’s wife, Gabrielle Union, shared a TikTok revealing he’d bleached it blonde. But just when Wade though he was ready to go back to his natural shade, he took his hair-color experimentation to the next level.
“Yo, y’all know I like to do stuff with my hair, so I dyed it back to black. You know, gotta get my professional look on,” Wade says in a new video on Instagram. But then, Jared Esguerra‘s talent for incredible dye jobs caught his eye. The self-taught colorist is only 17 years old, but that didn’t deter Wade from reaching out to him to have him create what may be the greatest beauty tribute to his beloved Miami Heat that we’ve ever seen.
In the slide after Wade’s introductory clip, we see that the back of his head has been intricately dyed in an awesome flame shape, with vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow that pop against his naturally dark hair.
