Lupita Nyong’o has been making the rounds on her press tour for her recently published children’s book Sulwe. And as usual, she’s been looking exceptional while doing it. So it was no surprise that the Academy Award-winning A-lister gave a rare hair treat, showing up for the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 11th Annual Governors Awards in natural bangs.

Though we’ve seen the beauty in so many gorgeous natural hairstyles, we don’t get to see her sporting bangs. And while she stuck with her textured tresses, she added something different with the softly straightened short bangs. We’re always excited to see what Nyong’o will give us next when it comes to hair and makeup, and this was a delightful departure.

Not everyone is a fan of short bangs because they leave so much skin exposed between the end of the fringe and the eyebrows (and if we’re being honest, not everyone pulls them off well). But this matched the whimsy of her colorful detailed dress without competing with it. Her bun was simple, and the bangs gave a certain early 90’s nostalgia with its length and texture. The look was imperfect and unfussy in a way that only Lupita Nyong’o can make stylish and covetable.

Would you rock Lupita’s natural textured bangs?
