Erik Ten Nyong’o? Lupita Goes Bald
Kenyan-Mexican actress and Hollywood star Lupita Nyong’o seems to have gone the Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag’s way. Bald is good. The actress, posting on her socials on Thursday, May 11, showed off her new look.
Lupita showed a changed look with her head having no hair. To say the least, the Black Panther star put on a show that would make all bald people proud. The actress rocked the style confidently moving from the usual Afro look that was her signature look.
“Happy without hair! Application for the Dora Milaje submitted,” she captioned the picture on her Instagram. She was referring to the all-women fierce soldiers that fight for the fictional Wakanda nation in the Marvel comics.
The actress in November on Good Morning America shared stories about what it was like on set of the sequel after the passing of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman in 2020.
‘When someone like that passes away, it has an effect on everyone around them, uh, and so we see how different characters are dealing in different ways,’ she shared before saying it felt ‘hollow.’
Lupita explained that all the characters in the movie were dealing with loss.
Playing the role of a grieving character helped Lupita heal the loss she felt without having Boseman on se
This new looks had people reacting to her change in style. Singer Ciara was one of the people that were first to comment on the hair change. She simply posted three love emojis.
Fans and celebrities alike praised Lupita for her courage and beauty in rocking the new hairstyle. Many people commended Nyong’o’s decision, stating that she looks stunning no matter what she does with her hair.
This isn’t the first time the actress has made a significant change to her hair. In April this year, Nyong’o chopped off her sisterlocks, and she documented the transformation on Instagram.
