Avatar • Jul 3, 2014

Lupita N'yongo braiding hair

Lupita Nyong’o starred in a recent short for Vogue magazine entitled, Braids. In the clip, we watch her create amazing styles on 6 of her closest friends. We catch a glimpse of the Hollywood starlet’s skills as she effortlessly styles hair into bantu knots, goddess braids and cornrows. Nyong’o also shares the story of how she came to be such a skilled braider and of the intimacy she feels that comes with braiding hair. Gone head, Lupita, Girl!

The chic pre‐teen was seen rocking her blonde TWA around town with Kylie Jenner thrifting.

Guess who was livin’ it up in Maui like Case and Ja Rule in 2001 with a new curly cut?

What do you think of Vogue Magazine’s Braids video? Do we love Willow and Teyana’s looks?

I though I was the ONLY one. My oldest niece is 14 and I would have stomped her in the floor if she went around dressed like Willow.

Willow looks fantastic. What a fortunate girl not to have violent ppl in her life who would stomp her.

Teach these girls to respect themselves and cover up. What’s so fantastic about going around showing your stomach and other things. Train your girls to respect themselves. I teach her to be modest and will teach my future children the same (By God’s grace, if her permits me to have some) to do the same. Violent you say? hahahahaahahhaahha My niece is thankful because I warn her and teach her what the heck this world is about, and how NOT to get caught up in the latest trend and fashion. I teach her to be a true women of God,… Read more »

I can’t get enough of Lupita; she has so much to give the world including how to love our natural, God‐given hair.

I’m a little reluctant to believe that’s Teyana Taylor’s natural hair only because she’s been advertising her “taylored textures” hair extensions recently

It may be her natural length, but I don’t think her hair is unprocessed…

Willow looks super cute. Short hair suits her.

she’s great and all, i think she’s beautiful etc…but i dunno why everyone, blacks whites etc, is fetishizing her as if she’s so rare, i live in africa and this really isn’t that rare (beautiful,smart, skilled,eloquent dark girl), and it seems like people are turning her into the messiah/representant for black or dark or african girls everywhere, it’s very off putting.

I’m glad somebody said it! She’s great but not the end all be all lol

Isn’t her being great reason enough for people to get excited? She’s a celebrity! Jennifer Lawrence isn’t the end‐all‐be‐all either, but she gets plenty of love. Lupita deserves a fan base too.

People aren’t saying that she is a rare specimen but her current success in Hollywood is impressive considering that institution’s history. Her looks, talent and personality are rare in a Hollywood/ International star setting so just be happy for her and cheer that someone who has so much n common with other women like you is getting fame and has a positive fan‐base.
