Natural Hair Role Model: Lupita Nyong’o

lupita blog post Within the space of a few months, Lupita Nyong’o has quickly become one of the most admired actresses in Hollywood.

Why?

Well, she’s undeniably stunning, super smart and exceptionally talented.

However, what I admire most about Lupita is despite living in a world that celebrates a very narrow and one-dimensional perception of beauty, Lupita has managed to effortlessly show that beauty is as diverse and fluid as the earth itself.

Beauty is not one colour, one complexion, one hair type or one skin tone.

Beauty is not one-sized or one dimensional. Beauty is not narrow, fragile or fearful.

Beauty is colourful, florescent, natural and graceful.

Beauty is vibrant, energetic, charming and brave.

These are EXACTLY the qualities that Lupita embodies and I am so glad to see that because of her, Hollywood (and the wider world at large) is starting to recognise the range of beauty that exists in the world.

After seeing Lupita grace the red carpet multiple times earlier this year I was stunned. However, when I heard her give this speech (below) my admiration for her grew ten fold.

Watch the video below and leave a comment that shares one thing you learnt from her speech.
