Lupita Nyong’o Demonstrates Her Hair Braiding Artistry

Who knew that Lupita Nyong’o, the talented Oscar award winning actress, has braiding skills under her tool belt of skills. Presented by Vogue, Lupita demonstrates on film how she primps her friends’ hair for free; all for the love of braiding and the artistry of hair styling:

“When I got back to school from learning how to braid hair in Kenya, I also decided it was going to be my side hustle, I was going to make some money braiding people’s hair. So I went through the great troubles of creating a poster, but I just did not have the heart to charge anyone, so my friends would make appointments with me, and I’d spend the whole weekend braiding their hair. I just couldn’t charge them. I never made any money from it.”- Lupita Nyong’o

She states how she loves her hair texture for its versatility and how “braiding just tells a story” with all the different shapes you can create.
