I started to lose my hair when I was 25. It made me feel very insecure. For a while I tried cutting it short and letting the barber work his magic. I'd have him use the shortest possible blade and fade in on the thinner spot.

There's something so simple that could change your life in a split second. It’s a very personal decision, and not an easy one. But doing it could be the best decision you ever make.

I started to lose my hair 15 years ago. It made me feel like I wasn't beautiful, because I didn't have any hair anymore. Like, who would want to be with a woman with no hair? I cried so much about what was happening to me.

I was in the middle of cutting my hair one afternoon, and I took the guard off the clippers to clean the hair out. As I was doing this, I looked in the mirror and saw a spot that I had missed. Without thinking, I just put the clippers up to it, but I hadn’t put the guard back on. So I now had a huge strip of baldness. My heart sank, but then I just kept going.

One day, I saw myself in our security camera at work and my bald spot was showing very badly. I decided I’d rather embrace myself and go full bald rather than keep the bald spot and be ashamed of it.

I started to lose my hair last April. It made me feel so stressed out! I thought it was just postpartum related but I was so wrong. It was heartbreaking.

I began growing my hair in August 2016 when I came out as Transgender. I'd known I was balding, but I didn't know the extent of the damage. After letting it grow for a year and a half, I realized that I was never going to have a full head of hair.

I took the leap and shaved my head, then just stood in front of the mirror. The feeling I got was what I imagine scientists feel when they make a ground-breaking discovery. It was the purest form of myself I have ever found. That was 6 years ago and I don’t ever see myself going back.

In addition to keeping my hair long to hide my bald spots, I underwent every treatment short of surgery -- I tried ointments, creams, and topical gels. I went on a gluten free diet, took biotin, and put egg whites on my scalp. Once a month I would go to a doctor and get anywhere from ten to forty steroid shots injected into my scalp.

I started to lose my hair just before my 21st birthday. I felt self-conscious, confused, unsightly. At first I took the medical route of oral and topical steroids, and I started wearing a wig. Then, after about 10 years, my boyfriend at the time helped me make the decision to go bald. He even shaved it for me!

I started to lose my hair at 2 years old. I’ve worn wigs since first grade -- been wearing lace wigs since before it was a fad! From a young age, I felt ugly even though I knew I was beautiful. Now, I am on way to becoming a superstar because I let go of fear.

One of the feel-good stories of the day is a memory shared by the Secret Service, recalling the time President George H.W. Bush shaved his head in support of a Secret Service member whose 2 year-old son was diagnosed with leukemia.
