Lupita Nyong’o will go great lengths to make sure she stays looking fierce. Even if that means doing her hair with an iron.

We can’t make this up, folks. The 12 Years a Slave star shared a throw back video on Instgram of herself getting camera ready with the lack of her usual hair tools.

According the Kenyan beauty, she was on a glamping trip (glamorous camping) but forgot the spray bottle for her hair. So her hair stylist, Vernon Francois, came up with the brilliant idea to use the water from an iron.

“My #tbt is a Hair tip from the infinitely talented @vernonfrancois: when you go #glamping and you forgot your spray bottle, an iron can come in very handy,” she captioned the clip. “#multipurposehouseholdappliances #Kenya #Amboseli #Safariglam #thisiscalledcreativity #dontturniton.”

Thanks for the tip, Nyong’o.

Lupita has always had fun, fresh hair cuts. From flat tops, to just simply curly, we can’t get enough of her evolving style. And although the actress has a crew of people helping with her changing looks, the 32-year-old also has some skill herself. Turns out, she is quite the braider. 

In June 2014, the Vogue cover model took cameras inside a New York salon to show off her braiding skills. “Your hair is your frame—it’s so important,” she said. Adding, “braiding tells a story.” 


50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”



Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
