I received an email from a Vogue editor this morning about an amazing short video starring Oscar Award Winner, Lupita Nyong’o, and I just had to share with y’all! So how ’bout, Lupita loves braiding hair! She learned to braid, twist and create bantu knots from an aunt in Kenya after being disappointed by the local braiding situation in NYC back in undergrad. Watch as she braids her girlfriends’ hair and chats about how it almost became a side hustle!
