Talking’ Bout Bald Girls – Article In Star Magazine

by Y on October 15, 2007

Talking' Bout Bald Girls - Article in Star MagazineI was at the grocery store yesterday when a magazine caught my eye. It is this month’s Star Magazine. It has a big title sprawled across the cover, “Hollywood Stylists Tell All!” and beneath it with a nice pink asterisk, it says “Who’s really bald.” Obviously I wasn’t going to make it out of the grocery store without this new item in tow, nor could I wait to paw through the pages until I came across the section it made reference to on the cover. It said “Talking’ Bout Bald Girls” and has 3 images of the heads of celebrities, Nichole Richie, Kate Beckinsale, and Lindsay Lohan.

I have to say that image of Kate Beckinsale isn’t new, I saw it a long time ago online. What the magazine is touting as “bald girls” is hardly the truth. Nichole Ritche may have some slight thinning on the hairline from the extensions, but even with a magnifying glass I couldn’t find the “noticeable bald spot” that the article stated existed and even had pointed to with a white arrow. Obviously I don’t know her and maybe there is truth to it, but you can’t tell from this image. Kate Beckinsale has a tiny little thin round area, very slight, very mild and again doesn’t warrant the title of “bald girl.” Lindsay Lohan got caught with her extensions showing, that’s how her head got landed on this page. An insider talked to Star and stated that she “is hiding her overprocessed hair” and that “the beautiful, shiny hair you see is not her own. It’s definitely extensions.”

On a different page there is an image of Jennifer Lopez with arrows pointing to different parts of her body. The one I found interesting is the arrow to the hair. I never knew that Jennifer Lopez wore hair, I just thought she was really lucky to be blessed with such gorgeous locks. The title is “Her Hair Does Cost A Thing.” It says “Don’t be fooled by the hair that she’s got! The source says that J.Lo sometimes wears wigs and that her actual hair barely touches her shoulders. And those big buns she wears? They’re add-ons!”

News to me. And yes, I’m guilty of buying Star magazine 🙂

I love Star magazine. I think a lot of celebrities have extensions or some sort of fake hair. A lot of times I’ll see great pictures of Jessica Simpson’s hair, and then I’ll find out she was wearing a wig, but I had no idea. So many people here in Vegas have extensions! I would be afraid they would damage my hair too much and make more fall out. It’s a vicious circle, because I’d want them to make my hair thicker.

I read Star, US Weekly and other celebrity magazines. It’s good mindless reading, especially when you’re on a treadmill! I was reading Star (I think it was Star) last week and it showed a picture to Kate Bosworth. She’s obviously anorexic, but her hair looks a lot thinner because of it. You gotta love how dramatic these celeb magazines are – I mean their exaggerated headlines work, right? I would have picked that up immediately if I had seen it at the grocery store or Target, too. And I would have even if I wasn’t losing my hair!!

I thought it was pretty obvious that Jennifer Lopez wears extensions and wigs, like almost 90% of women in Hollywood. I saw her real hair, and it was pretty scraggly.

Paula Abdul wears extensions.

I’m certain that Paula Abdul also has extensions. I watched an old video of her from the first year of American Idol. At the part in her hair, you could easily see her scalp and she had a fairly normal/somewhat thin- looking thickness of hair. I was so surprised!
I don’t think we’ll ever see her like that again, but I wish she would be “herself” for her fans and everyone.

I am sure many celebrities want to wear wigs or extensions just to be glamorous but they are not seen on an every day basis. My issues is I wear hair and I wish I could wear what ever style I please, but I feel like I need to wear the same style every day so I can successfully hide my issue. Does anyone feel like this?

I must admit, I’ve always looked at Jlo’s hair with envy. It always looks so glorious.
