Lupita Nyong'o's Hairstylist Is Changing the Curly-Hair Game

ByCaitlin M.

If you're like us, you likely take one look at Lupita Nyong'o on any given red carpet and instantly fall in love with her beautiful natural curls. But, as any woman with curls will tell you, it takes an entire army of products to get them to look exactly how you want. Well, good news, curly girls: Your arsenal is about to get very well stocked.

Hairstylist Vernon François—who calls Kerry Washington, Uzo Aduba, Naomie Harris, and Lupita Nyong'o clients—just launched a new line of hair products specifically designed for textured hair—meaning those ladies with waves, curls, and serious coils will be all able to benefit. Yes, there's the standard shampoo and conditioner in the new line, but there's also a range of styling products, which as any true curly-haired lady knows, is the keys to a perfect 'do.


Although the serum is a hydrating must, we've got our eyes on the Scalp Nourishment Spray, which treats and nourishes hair via the roots and scalp (plus, it's ideal for those with braids or locs!) and the Dazzling Spritz Shine Spray, which coats hair with a luminous shine. But what's probably the real music to our ears is the formula of the products: They're all super lightweight. (The conditioners actually come in easy-to-use spray bottles to ensure your curls are hydrated but never heavy.) And although it still might take an army to get curls just right, at least you know you're arming yourself with the best of the best.

The new Vernon François products are all $40 or under and available now exclusively at
