She has already been crowned the most beautiful person in the world (amongst many other accolades) but who knew Hollywood’s newest “IT” girl could braid?! See Lupita Nyong’o’s braiding skills plus, Luke James’ new video "Options" featuring Rick Ross and August Alsina’s new video "Benediction" also featuring the Bawse when you go inside….

Lupita Nyong’o is a woman of many hats. And most recently, she revealed she can braid! Like…foreal.

The Oscar winning starlet met up with six of her closest friends at New York City’s Ludlow Blunt salon to show off her hair braiding techniques. Lupita revealed she use to braid her friends’ hair on the weekend while she was in college…for free. And she loves doing it. She said,

“Your hair is your frame—it’s so important,” she says. And, she emphasizes, “braiding tells a story,” marking the body with a symbol of communal affection.

The Kenyan beauty decided to learn how to braid after visiting an African braiding shop in New York and was left “morbidly disappointed” with the result. 

The Lancôme spokeswoman went home to Kenya over the summer and asked her aunt (who is a hair stylist) to teach her how to braid. And that’s when she learned how to box braid, corn row and do twists. She had planned on charging for her services but realized she didn’t have the heart to charge her friends, so she did their hair as a favor for free.

And in another new video featuring the Bawse…

After winning two BET Awards last night, New Orleans crooner August Alsina has released the visuals to his next single “Benediction,” featuring MMG rapper Rick Ross.
