Find out Hollywood favorite, Lupita Nyong'o's, unique way of hydrating her curls!

In addition to an extensive résumé that includes an ivy-league degree, an Oscar and a contract with Lancôme, actress, Lupita Nyong'o is simply the master of cool. And, as if we needed another reason to wish the actress was our friend, she proved yesterday that not only is she super chic and super cool, but she's also practical. Yesterday, the actress posted an Instagram video in honor of Throwback Thursday in true celebs-are-just-like-us form. In the video, her long-time hairstylist, Vernon François is refreshing her curls with--you'll never guess--a clothing iron! Having forgotten her spray bottle, François uses the misting option on the iron to hydrate Lupita's hair, stating: 

"When you go #glamping and you forgot your spray bottle, an iron can come in very handy..." 

Followed by a slew of hashtags; one including a safety advisory instucting fans "do not turn it on."

For the record, Lupita may be the only person who makes being misted by an iron look glamorous. Also, when is the next #glamping trip and where can we sign up?
