Oscar award winner and A-list Hollywood actress, Lupita Nyong’o has finally ditched her short hairdo for a more African look.

The actress has been spotted rocking braid cornrows while heading for a movie shoot, for her new play “Eclipsed” in New York City and I must admit she does look stunning!


Lupita is best known for her short hair styles which she has appeared with on the red carpet in most events and award shows, and clearly, she’s the only one who can pull it off.

She debuted her long hair a few weeks ago when she visited Disney Land, with a long, black, bushy and curly hair, which was a surprise to many who were used to her with short hair.

Well, with her new long braids with cornrows at the front, she sure does represent her African culture to the fullest. She also gave her Instagram followers a peek of her braids a week ago, where she had worn a cap with a long side-braid.
