Supermodel Naomi Campbell is discovering the high price of being beautiful – and paying for it by losing her hair!
Years of wearing elaborate hair extensions and weaves on the catwalk and in photo shoots have taken their toll on the supermodel’s natural locks, leaving her with a shocking bald patch covering the whole side of her head, RadarOnline.com revealed on Tuesday.
Naomi could go bald permanently, warned hair extensions expert Susan Lipson (who has not treated Campbell), owner of On Set Salon in Santa Monica, California. “She may have to wear wigs from now on.”
“This type of damage is commonly caused by a process called ‘Wefts,’ which are strips sewn into the hair very tightly that can pull on the hair and weaken the follicle,” Lipson explained to RadarOnline.com.
“It could definitely make her go bald, she probably still has a little hair left on top, which is why she can still attach extensions up there. There are long term adverse affects, her hair won’t grow back – it’s like ripping out a fingernail.”
Campbell’s vanishing hairline was clearly visible at a photo shoot in New York City while she was being primped for a shoot for Dennis Blasso.
Luckily the stunning 40-year-old has such flawless bone structure that she’d still look gorgeous without even a single hair on her head, as this computer-generated image of her proves.
