Short Hair + Lupita Nyong'o Inspiration

At the beginning of this year, I shaved my head.... and although I loved the short hair, I am starting to get a little frustrated. Tomorrow I have to go to the Leadership Awards Ceremony at my school which is pretty much like the Oscar's on a smaller scale (no kidding). I have the dress, I have the shoes, I have the accessories but I am stuck on one thing.... what do I do with my hair?!

Having a Teeny Weeny Afro (TWA, for short) can have it's struggles, but on top of that I have 4C hair (Kinky Coily hair). This limits me in what I can do to spice up my fro and not having that much length to work with doesn't help at all. After wallowing in my misery for a little bit, I got a bright idea.... who is the one natural girl who also happens to rock a TWA, who is rocking the entertainement industry? LUPITA NYONG'O!!!

After trolling the internet for a while, I found some amazing pictures of her that have left me quite inspired for tomorrow:

The Board Of Governors Of The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences' Governor Awards - Arrivals

Isn't she beautiful!? I don't know what I am going to do yet, but it will definitely be one of these styles.

  1. These are great! But I always make a point to check Michelle Williams or Ginnifer Goodwin for short celebrity hairstyles as inspiration. ^.^ Lizzie
