It doesn’t matter if Lupita Nyong’o is rocking short hair or long hair—she is stunning, and her latest hair makeover is proof. On Sunday, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress took to Instagram to show off her updated hairstyle. She added length to her signature short cut with long braids that stopped just past her shoulders. This isn’t her first time rocking braids. She’s been working the look into some of her hairstyles for a while now, but this time she gave us a close-up view as she let her braids hang down. There was no need for a lengthy caption. Nyong’o kept it short and sweet by simply typing underneath the photo, “Summer Sunday.” It certainly looked like a relaxing way to top off a weekend. Nyong’o gave us all types of summer goals as she leaned against a window pane while wearing a white lace look.
Nyong’o deserves a little rest and relaxation. The 33-year-old star is gearing up to release her next film Queen of Katwe on September 23. In the Disney presentation Nyong’o plays Harriet Mutsei, the mother of Ugandan chess champion Phiona Mutesi. The Internet is already buzzing about Nyong’o’s performance in the sports drama. She’s undeniably an amazing actress, and she gives an equally as great performance on the red carpet. Nyong’o has also become known for serving fierce beauty moments while promoting her films, so her latest hair makeover might only be the beginning of another round of jaw-dropping looks.
