My job as a flight attendant, right after safety and security, is to have a polished, professional appearance that represents my company well. My outward appearance to the public is central to my overall self-confidence. I can hide any traces of breast cancer and my surgeries behind my uniform, but unless I were to wear a wig or extensions, my thinning hair is out there on display for the flying public to see.
One small step towards building self-esteem is having a “good hair day” every day. Hair is one part of your overall physical appearance.
Men and women “see” the world differently. Men often struggle to tell the difference between hues, as one in 12 of them are color blind, compared with one in 255 women.
Everyday hairstyles that pull on the hair, such as extremely tight ponytails, ballerina buns, thick dreadlocks, and poorly applied hair extensions can make everyone at risk of developing a type of hair loss called traction alopecia.
