In a video for Vogue, Lupita has a hairdressing party with six of her best friends (squeal, how do we get an invite? Tell us or we'll cut you) where she shows off her braiding and cornrow skills.
The 12 Years a Slave actress explains that while she was in college, she couldn't find anywhere good to get her hair did. So, she went off and learnt to do it herself.
She spent a summer learning to do braiding like a professional hairdresser and thought she might make a bit of pocket money as her 'side hustle' to make some cash...but she just didn't have a heart to charge anyone.
The all consuming girl crush with have on Lupita might be getting out of control.
