Lupita discusses how she learned to braid hair, why she wasn’t successful in turning hair braiding into her “side hustle” during college, the difference between hair textures when doing African braiding, and why she loves her hair texture.

  • Personally, I hate having my hair cornrowed; especially in it’s natural state…it just ain’t gon happen! I think it’s better to blow it out and then cornrow it, if one chooses, but my hair is so kinky/coily, I prefer not to have it done in those types of styles. It could be due to those who have done it being heavy handed OR that I’m tender headed, but either way, I won’t risk it! I honestly believe no one will handle my hair like i do.

  • Lupita is a very talented person. This is something new that I have learned about her. She is an expert in braiding other people’s hair.
