Lupita’s hairstylist tells everything!

You didn’t have to be in the United Kingdom to notice Lupita Nyong'o’s cutting edge, yet contemporary hairstyle she wore to the Star Wars Premiere in London. The chic updo (held together by a netted veil) was the perfect compliment to her long sleeve gown.

“Lupita’s look for this premiere had to be more bold and avant garde as London is such a fashion hub,” says Lupita’s hairstylist, Vernon Francois. “It feels high fashion, almost couture.”

The look was slightly different from the Star Wars premier event in Los Angeles where she rocked an updo without the pompadour on the top.

If you’re looking to create the both updos for yourself, Francois suggests remembering to keep the look [simple] and minimal. He also suggests co washing before styling and to always keep in mind that the main focus is to maintain the integrity of your texture whilst manipulating.
