17 Lupita Nyong’o 2018 Hairstyles That Will Inspire Your Afronista Look



When we think Afronista, Hollywood’s Lupita Nyong’o is a fitting poster child. The lovely actress has broken red carpet norms and brandished her Afronista badge of honor with her creative black hairstyles. It is very uncommon to see a black woman on the red carpet rocking an afro puff or embracing her natural hair so boldly but Lupita Nyong’o is no ordinary actress. 

From the very first moment when she wowed the world with her captivating style on the Academy Awards red carpet, we have remained fascinated with this beauty of Kenyan origin. So we thought it was only fitting that we draw inspiration from some of the creative and stunning hairstyles she has worn on and off the red carpet this 2018. She especially captivated us while doing her rounds for the mega box office hit Black Panther where she played a key role.
Here are 17 of our favorite hairstyles worn by the actress.
