We have already mentioned how fascinated we are with Lupita Nyong’o’s hair (you can read all about her and other teeny weeny afros here) but we thought the Oscar-winning actress deserved a whole post of her own- especially as it's been revealed today that Lupita Nyong'o is the new face for Lancombe! So, we’ve compiled some of Lupita’s best hairstyles to show you just how creative and amazing Lupita’s TWA is.
Besides going from being unknown to an Oscar-winning actress in the space of a few months, the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o has also put teeny weeny afros back on the map and made short, afro hair cool again.
From her star-studded hairstyle at the Oscars (did you see that gorge, Fred Leighton diamond and gold headband?) to her box-fresh flat top, Lupita Nyong’o’s hair has seen a variety of hairstyles already and has demonstrated many ways to style a teeny weeny afro along the way.
It was during Awards season that Lupita Nyong’o’s hair was really brought to our attention- who knew what you could do with a tiny afro? As evident from miss Nyong’o’s locks, retro hairstyles are the way forward and partings are your best friend when it comes to putting a twist on your TWA. Just by switching Lupita’s parting to the side, centre or parting both sides (yes, there is a way), the actress’ hair is instantly given a makeover. We also love how Lupita’s hairstylist has created a widow’s peak in her hair for the Critic’s Choice Awards 2014. Plus a retro flat top, also gives a nod to the ‘90s ‘do too, whilst giving a wink to one of this season’s trends as well.
However, we also adore Lupita Nyong’o’s hair when it is stripped back to basics in a neatly, cropped ‘do- unfussy, effortless and super elegant, don’t you think? It also look equally as glamorous and oozes femininity when paired with a bright pink lip, as pictured above.
We think that Lupita Nyong’o is definitely leading the way for afro-haired girls everywhere right now. What with her ability to switch up teeny weeny afro and to rock short hair like no other, Lupita Nyong’o’s hair definitely gets Dirty Looks approval- wouldn’t you agree?
