DURING HER recent photo shoot with Vogue, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o filmed an intimate hair video where she braided the hair of her closest friends.

The 31-year-old explained that she used to spend her weekends in college giving fellow students hair transformations. Nyong’o originally planned to charge her college mates for her services, but then changed her mind.

"I decided it was going to be my side hustle. I was going to make some money braiding people's hair," Nyong'o told Vogue.

"So I went to the great troubles of creating a poster - but I just didn't have the heart to charge anyone." 

The current Vogue cover girl, added: "For me braiding hair is an intimate thing," Nyong'o said. "It's getting up close and personal and I like to do it for people I know and love and trust."
