Lupita Nyong'o Braids Hair With Vogue Magazine

Lupita Nyong'o braids hair with Vogue Magazine.


Our Kenyan 'It Girl' Lupita Nyong'o returned this week in this hair braiding video for Vogue Magazine. The video, directed by Austin Peters, takes place in a salon, where Lupita shares her experience and love for hair styling. She brought six of her friends along with her as well, and the actress does their hair one by one while explaining how she learned her technique. It's great to see this feature of African culture in one of the most celebrated mainstream fashion magazines. Lupita is, once more, a great ambassador for the continent — and a pretty talented braider! Watch the video above and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #lupitabraidshair.
