Nicki Minaj enjoys doing "wild stuff" with her hair.

The rap superstar embraces her flamboyant look.

Nicki needs diversity with hairdos, as she tires of routine styles easily.

"I was always inspired by people who did wild stuff but didn't always have the balls to do it myself. Now I can't leave it alone. Even with my wigs, I get bored. I can't believe I used to wear the same hairstyle every day of the year," she revealed in an interview with Elle.

"I don't want a wig that looks like a wig; I want one that could pass for a weave. And I have an amazing hairdresser [Terrence Davidson].

"I could literally tell him to put a jukebox on my head, and he would figure it out."

Nicki relies heavily on her makeup artist to pull off the looks she desires to create on her face. Applying cosmetics on her eyes is a nerve-wracking process for the star.

"I don't have the patience [to do my eyes], my hands shake, and I mess everything up," Nicki explained.

"So my makeup artist has to do my brows and lids and lashes. Everyone knows I'm a lash girl by now. When I don't have my lashes, I feel naked."

Nicki loves applying things to her lips and always carries one cosmetic in particular in her bag.

"I can't see myself without pink lipstick," Nicki gushed.

"I can go without it for a couple days, but if there was no more pink lipstick in the world, I'd be useless."
