Lupita Nyong'o's Beauty Back-Up Plan
The Oscar-winner reveals her very cool braiding skills
The braiding, she said, was initially going to be a side hustle while she was studying at Yale's School of Drama Arts. "But I just didn't have the heart to charge anyone."
"What I love about my hair texture and this kind of hair is you can do all sorts of interesting angular shapes with it," said Nyong'o, while braiding. "Braiding just tells a story. It's just like sculpting the locks, really." True enough. Do our hair, please? [Essence]
