For some women, a trip to the hairstylist can be more nerve-racking than a trip to the dentist. Tonsurephobia, fear of the salon or getting your hair cut, can affect confidence and self-esteem, and cause extreme stress.
"But really, the difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is two weeks. It grows [back]," Jaclyn says.

They give you fuller, longer locks in seconds flat. Hair extensions are all the rage — and part of a hair-raising crime wave. Thieves have been targeting beauty supply shops and stealing extensions. "Some of that hair is eight thousand dollars," Dr. Wendy explains. "That's why they're breaking in and stealing it!"
"There's really a black market for [extensions]," Jaclyn adds.
Round, long or oval, the shape of your face is an important factor in determining your best hairstyle. Jaclyn and her hairstylist of 18 years, Jose Eber, discuss their exclusive line of wigs.
“Even hair color can change a person’s total personality and their whole look,” Jose explains. “And the greatest thing about these wigs is that they’re very, very affordable. They’re below a hundred dollars.”
Hair models, including health and wellness expert Jillian Michaels, demonstrate how wigs can dramatically transform your look and accentuate your best features!

Alopecia areate is an incurable autoimmune disease affecting 5 million Americans. The disease causes the immune system to attack the hair follicles and causes extreme hair loss on a person’s head and body, leaving small, round patches in place of the hair.
While, in some cases, the condition may repair itself, dermatologists can perform steroid injections to alleviate the overactive immune system. Other treatments, such as creams and lasers, are being used to combat the condition, as well.
Male-pattern baldness accounts for more than 95 percent of hair loss in men, and by age 35, two-thirds of American men will have some degree of appreciable hair loss. By age 50, roughly 85 percent of men have significantly thinning hair.
Research suggests that components of the X-chromosome have been shown to influence hair loss in men, leading to the belief baldness may stem from the maternal side.
Pattern baldness also affects more than 25 million women in the United States, and is generally caused by shrinking hair follicles. Factors including hormones, thyroid problems, stress, genetic pre-disposition, polycystic ovarian syndrome, menopause and pregnancy can all contribute to hair loss, as well, so it’s important to consult your doctor if you notice changes in your locks.

Bad hair can reflect bad health. Hair ages along with the rest of your body, and stress can contribute to dry, brittle hair, and can even cause hair loss. See how to keep your mane conditioned and healthy with an at-home hair therapy wrap.

Back acne, or “bacne,” can be a painful and unsightly problem. People with longer hair that makes contact with his or her back are more likely to have breakouts. “We know that hair has oils in it,” plastic surgeon Dr. Drew Ordon says. “If your hair is getting a little dirt in it, or if you’re running your hands through your hair a lot, that can clog the pores in your back and lead to bacne.”
Gentle exfoliation and washing your back well are the best preventative measures. If you have a breakout, using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can help clear it up.
