Lira admits that when she was first approached by Mattel, she was a bit worried about how they'd replicate her natural hair. "Truly my concern was always my hair. You think to yourself, you've got short hair ... Barbies have long flowing hair, and so how's that going to work?," she said in a Jacaranda FM interview.
But the celeb needn't have stressed because Mattel's designers nailed it. Lira told Jacaranda FM that she was "taken aback" the first time she saw the doll and that its hair is her favourite thing about it.
