QUESTION: I’m going through chemotherapy now and my hair has fallen out. My treatment ends soon and I’m planning on starting college in a few months, but when I get there, I won’t have any hair. Were people accepting of that? – BALD BEAUTY
Dear Bald Beauty,
When you do get to college, whatever hair you have will be fine. It can take quite a while for hair to grow back out again, but that doesn’t mean you won’t look cute before that. A short haircut might be awesome for your facial structure. Also, people shave their heads on purpose during college all the time. Sometimes it’s a rebellion thing. Sometimes it’s to help friends with cancer. If you have the type of personality to pull that off, own it. It’s not weird at all. People will react to how YOU are reacting to it.
I, personally, was not comfortable walking around bald, so I got wigs. I actually got 4 wigs and I would trade them off. M/W/F I was bleach blond and T/R I had dark auburn hair (which I’ve always wanted). I thought it was hilarious to be able to walk around campus and not have people recognize me from alternate days. 🙂
