Amandla Stenberg's Hair and Makeup For Mission Magazine

What Do I Love More: Amandla Stenberg's Jumbo Braids or Their Wispy Lash Extensions?

Another day, another Amandla Stenberg selfie that has us fully convinced that they can pull off any look imaginable. On July 15, the Hate U Give actor posted an Instagram pic in which they're seen wearing their signature blond box braids, which they wore along with heavy, dark eye makeup and bleached eyebrows. They paired the look with superlong, spidery eyelashes, which we're in full envy of regardless of the fact that we know they're not real.

According to some previous posts, Stenberg wore the look when they were recently featured on the cover of a special issue of Mission Magazine. The braids were the work of beloved celebrity hair stylist Vernon François — who's worked with other talent like Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, and Salem Mitchell — while the makeup was done by Kali Kennedy. Check out Stenberg's look in the photo above.
