“As most of you know, I’ve had #alopecia since my dad had a heart attack and died when I was 8/9 yrs old. So a haircut has never just been about style or fashion.
“It’s always driven by how best to make me feel confident around covering patches.”
Furthermore, she said: “For the first time ever I’ve had bonded extensions courtesy of @simplyhairuk added into my fringe!! Luca you genius!!
“There are so many new techniques and products out there to help if you have the same problem so please don’t despair.”

These include having a fringe, using tinted thickening powders and having extensions fitted to create thickness.
