Lupita Nyong'o's Hairstylist Launches Products for Natural Hair
If you’re a Lupita Nyong’o fan, and why wouldn’t you be, you know the actress literally always looks perfect. It’s like she’s not even human, TBH. On the red carpet, her skin glows, her outfits are on point, and her hair is gorgeous whether it’s in a sculpted updo, delicate braids, or shorn ultra-short. Hairstylist Vernon François is the man behind her strands. He tends to the mane of Nyong’o, and also counts Karrueche Tran and Tracee Ellis Ross as clients. Now, he’s letting us all get a piece of him by releasing a 13-piece haircare line made for women with curly and textured hair. It’s aptly called Vernon François and is exclusive to Net-a-Porter. Of course the collection has the chicest packaging (above) in brown, green, and yellow shades that will look neutral chic on your bathroom sink.

The line is broken up into three collections for three different hair types: Pure Fro for tight curls, Curl-Command for looser waves, and Re-Vamp for damaged, chemically treated strands. According to an interview with Elle.com, François says that in addition to curls, he’s catering to those with dreadlocks, extensions, and braids. “I recognize this consumer has never really been incorporated,” he says. “There will be no misunderstanding where they fit and how they can feel included.”
Using ethical natural ingredients is also important to François. Every Vernon François product is cruelty free; many feature botanical oils like coconut and avocado.
