Lupita's wig confession

Lupita Nyong'o has learnt to love her cropped hairdo.

The 12 Years a Slave star is known for her great fashion sense and iconic short hair.

While she loves her cropped style, the actress is open to experimenting with hairpieces - as long as she's in private.

"I do enjoy wearing a wig from time to time in the privacy of my own home," she laughed to Britain's Pride magazine.

The 30-year-old is often considered a natural hair icon as she doesn't worry about dyeing or changing it in any way.

While she might love her locks now, this hasn't always been the case.

"I had longer hair which was relaxed for most of my adolescence but I cut my hair when I was 19 because I just got tired of all the effort it took... and how much time I was spending at the salon," she admitted.

"The time it took for me to just leave the house and look presentable was too long and I wanted more time to get stuff done."

Lupita felt liberated when she finally took a shaver to her hair.

She's now learnt to love the shape of her head and confessed she wouldn't have the patience to wait for it to grow back.

"I love my hair and I've made peace with it..." she grinned.

"That's how I feel; I love my hair and nobody can tell me anything!"

Lupita stunned at the BAFTAs recently, where she wore an emerald green Dior couture gown.

The gold belt around her waist really accentuated her slim frame, while matching cuffs rounded the look off.
