Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o may have stylists falling all over themselves for the chance to work with her, but it wasn’t too long ago Lupita herself worked braiding hair.
During her interview with Vogue, Lupita spent an afternoon braiding her friends’ hair and discussed how one bad experience in New York fueled her passion for learning how to braid.
When she went back to Kenya on a college break, Lupita says she asked her aunt, who owns a hair salon, to teach her how to braid. She explains, “I learned how to cornrow and box braid and twist. Now I really enjoy braiding hair for my friends.”
As if she wasn’t amazing enough already, Lupita confesses she never had the heart to charge anyone either.
Lupita continues, “For me, braiding hair is an intimate thing. It’s getting up close and personal, and I like to do it for people that I know and love and trust.”
