Rosie O’Donnell revealed her battle with hair loss on Twitter with a makeup-free photo showing off her bald spots. The comedian revealed that her hair loss was caused by aging. “Aging is fun,” she tweeted. -Nick Swift
“I used to try to keep my own hair teased as big as I like it, and having the bleach and all of that, it just broke off,” she said during the show’s instructional segment, “How to Make a Great Dolly Parton Wig.” The Jolene singer then elaborated, “I thought, ‘Why am I going through all that? Why don’t I just wear wigs?’ That way, I never have a bad hair day. I have a big hair day, but not a bad hair day.” –Nick Swift
One of Naomi Campbell’s most famous attributes is her long, straight mane of hair. But the supermodel has also spoken out about how wearing extensions damaged her hair over the years and contributed to scalp baldness. “I do take more care of my hair now because I lost all of it with extensions,” Naomi reported that eventually, she grew it back. “I am more careful and I do different things.” -Nicki Swift
