Braided Up: Lupita Nyong’o Reveals Haircare Hobby



Lupita Nyong’o is a woman of many talents. The Oscar-winning actress has proven her skills on the big screen, but now she’s revealing a whole new hobby…braids, twist and bantu knots!

After being “morbidly disappointed” with a hair braiding experience in college, Lupita’s aunt taught the beautiful Lancome model how to perfect her cornrow. Initially, Nyong’o thought the talent would earn her some money as a side hustle, but unfortunately she was just too kind to ever charge her customers.

Luckily, she doesn’t need a side hustle now! The Vogue cover model took the prestigious magazine into a hair salon with six of her friends and had a good ole’ haring braiding bash, just for fun. Affectionately called “Lu’s Do’s”, Lupita says that her love for hair braiding runs deep. “Your hair is your frame—it’s so important,” she says, adding, “braiding tells a story.”

Check out her skills below…would you let Lupita braid you up?


Phaedra Parks And Her Revenge Body Nab Modeling Contract

Life is still peachy for Phaedra Parks!

The former The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star has just signed a contract with Wilhelmenia Modeling Agency.

That’s right the 5’1 attorney turned reality star, entrepreneur and mortician has now added model to her long list of job titles.

Stylish caught up with Parks about the new venture and her new revenge body.

“I think I’m the face of “yes you can,” she said when asked why modeling. “I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me “Why?’ and I said “Why not?”

She added, “I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color and age. It’s exciting and an adventure!”

When asked what her dream campaign would be Parks said something in the beauty space.

“Well I would love be the face of skin care brand. I have great skin, I love makeup, but I love to be able to take off the makeup and have beautiful skin. I also think a lot of girls are looking on Instagram for an idealized standard of beauty that requires a lot of makeup. Those are not the faces of what real women look like.”

Not surprisingly Parks also admitted that she would be ok with going nude for the cameras.

“I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national T.V.  I love nudity! I’ve brought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two children, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.”

And we can see why. The mother of two is looking better than ever these days. So was it the divorce from husband Apollo Nida that led to her new body?

“Well, a lot of things happened in my personal life,” she explained. “Going through everything was so much stress, but then when it finished it was just effortless. I feel like I turned into Benjamin Button and started aging backwards, I started being happy.”
