While many holidays honor special people, important events or delicious food and drinks, September 13 celebrates a problem millions of American men and women must face every day. While the origins are unknown, Bald is Beautiful Day is an annual "holiday" that celebrates baldness and shines the spotlight on hair loss also known as alopecia.
Whether long or short, brunette, blonde or red, one of the first things people notice about someone is his or her locks. In fact, our hairstyle can say a lot about us. But for many people, hair loss can be downright devastating regardless of the reason. Whether hair loss is a result of illness, medication or genes, millions of men and women have what is considered "significant" hair loss.
