Millions of people around the world suffer from hair loss and female celebrities are no exception.
These may be some of the most beautiful and glorified female celebrities in the world, but they have also had their share of challenges to overcome.
Dealing with hair loss can be incredibly damaging to a person’s self-image. Let’s take a moment to see how these well-known celebrities continued to pursue their work and even thrive despite this often embarrassing and detrimental hardship.
Naomi CampbellSupermodel Naomi Campbell has suffered from an ailment known as traction alopecia. In 2014, the results of her condition were seen in paparazzi photos taken of the stunning superstar. Her receding hairline was visible and, needless to say, the press was not very forgiving.
It is speculated that her hair loss is due to the fact that her hair sees a lot of wear and tear as she goes through different hairpieces and looks for work. Despite being photographed countless times, including while on holiday in Ibiza in 2012, Naomi continues to shine and remains stylish as ever. In one photo from 2016, she wore a beautiful head wrap to a formal event.
There has been plenty of speculation surrounding Black Eyed Peas front woman Fergie’s thinning hair. When you live your life in the spotlight, scrutiny of your daily routine and outer appearance can be relentless and tough to handle. In Fergie’s case, her bald spots may have to do with age, or the fact that she’s worn plenty of hair extensions for her performances. To offset the attention on her thinning hair, Fergie always steps out with extra confidence.
The lyrics of her songs also strive to set a good example of self-confidence for those who look up to her. “Create a ladder for yourself, and walk up the steps. Climb that ladder,” she tells her fans.
Jennifer AnistonIronically, the famous haircut Jennifer Aniston sported on her hit TV show Friends was the same hair that caused damage. Named after her character, this layered look was known as“The Rachel” and had women all over the planet copying her style. The extensions that the popular actress had to wear on the set eventually took their toll. Aniston reported that extensions could contribute to bald patches and stunt hair growth.
To deal with the daily challenges of hair loss, Aniston relies on the strong foundation of trusted moral support. And, like her TV character, she has a good group of friends to call on when things get rough.
And she wisely appreciates it: “Where would you be without friends? There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.”
Oprah WinfreyOprah Winfrey is well known for her honesty and candidness with viewers. So it was no surprise when she opened up about her battles with hair loss. She has had many hairstyle changes, and she doesn’t hide the lessons learned from past mistakes — even though they were the mistakes of others.
How does she deal with hair loss? Oprah has learned to face it with a sense of humor, and by always moving on to the next great style.
What we see from these four female celebrities is that they don’t let a setback like hair loss get them down. If they can overcome gracefully, then perhaps so can we.
