‘My good friend asked if I could do her a favor and wear a wig to her wedding. She wants us all to ‘look good’. My friends have always known me as the girl with no hair.’: Bald woman offended when pressured to ‘match’ at friend’s wedding

“I’ve already paid for a dress, shoes, plane tickets, and deposit. A realistic wig is VERY expensive. We’re wearing matching dresses. Why isn’t that enough? Is being bald so hideous I’ll ruin her pictures? I know it’s ‘her day’, but isn’t there a line?'”

‘Mommy, I’m ugly.’ She was staring at a photo of herself, sobbing. She tugged at her hair, begging it to grow.’: Mom says ‘genetics’ caused daughter’s lack of hair, paints it pink to prove she’s a ‘beautiful princess’

“My daughter who was just skipping about was now shouting, ‘Please take me home!’ I know her struggle because I, too, had no hair. I wanted to make her feel beautiful, so I bought a pretty hair dye.
