Wearing your hair down is amazing… you know, until it gets in your face, in your mouth, tickles the back of your neck and takes a dip in your coffee cup.So what’s a girl to do?
“Most women become bothered when their hair is down because it’s always in their face, or they get too hot, or they just don’t feel like styling it,” says Michael Duenas, celebrity hairstylist and founder of Hair Room Service). When you do this consistently over time, the constant tension will damage the follicle and your hair will fall out in that area
Girls tend to tie their hairs especially when they are oily or they don’t have time to wash them. But have you ever noticed that tied hairs tend to fall more than open hairs, especially when you again open them? Recently it has been revealed that ponytails, messy buns, updos and parting all induce some kind of stress that can lead to major hair loss over time.
The messy bun is a lazy girl’s favorite hairstyle, but when you’re a ballerina your go-to look is the sleek ballerina bun. This former ballerina learned this lesson the hard way.
Diva Hollands is a 22-year-old mother of two and was formerly a ballerina dancer. She began dancing at just three years old! She remembers her mother tying her hair back in order to keep her hair out of her face.
‘My mum tied my hair up really tight from when I was really little, and looking back at pictures you can see it started having an effect on my hairline,’ revealed Diva.
However, she believes that her everyday hairstyle was the cause to her receding hairline. By her teen years she was targeted by bullies for her hairline.
‘I was bullied for my hairline in primary school and then into secondary school, but it got really serious when I was about 13,’ she said. ‘Since then I was completely self-conscious about it and did everything I could to hide the area.’
Diva quit dancing when she was 18 years old and started to do modelling and became a mother. Now, she is currently engaged to her fiancé, David Lawson-Brown.
‘When I met David I didn’t let him see me with my hair back for six months. I then explained it to him and he was really understanding. For me, it’s something that is very personal,’ she said.
She began to experience more hair loss after she delivered her kids. Instead of trying to hide it all the time, Diva decided to do something about it.
In October 2015, the former ballerina underwent a Follicular Unit Transplantation. A thin strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of her scalp was transplanted to the bare area parts of the top of her forehead.
The surgery took eight hours to performed and Diva was advised not to touch her hair for an entire week.After just a few months, she started to see results. ‘
It’s completely changed my life – dramatically. It’s had a huge impact. I couldn’t be happier with how it looks,’ she said.
