Lupita Nyong'o cuts her own braids, and the internet is freaking out

From braided updos to dreadlocks, Lupita Nyong’o is a woman of many looks. We never know what style she’ll sport on the red carpet, but we know it will be good.

Falling right in line with Nyongo’s ever-changing natural hairstyles is a recent Instagram post, which includes a photo of the Black Panther star cutting her own braids. The caption reads: “Out with the old, in with the older!” Many of her fans were able to relate to the process of cutting off braided extensions and shared those sentiments. One person wrote, “Lol I spent all day today taking my braids out,” and another shared, “Been there I understand you pretty.”

While we can’t confirm what Nyong’o’s next ’do will be, as one fan shared, “anything you do with your hair old, new or prehistoric you’re just totally beautiful and forever will be.”
