    Hi ladies, I am Monique, I have alopecia universalis, no hair anywhere on my head or body. I have had Alopecia Universalis for years. I am married to a great guy who likes my bald look, and I have a daughter and stepdaughter. I live in a large metropolitan area in the American midwest.

    How many of you women are bald with Alopecia Universalis or AT?

    Having alopecia universalis is not a problem for me. I prefer wearing headscarves to wearing wigs. Headscarves are more comfortable. There are so many fashionable ways to wrap a headscarf as well.

    Usually when I am out in public I wear headscarves, although on occasion when I go out with my husband in public, I will wear the bald look. I like wearing long dangle earrings to compliment either my bald look or my headscarfed look, along with my makeup and wearing a feminine dress or skirt and blouse, etc.. I like looking and feeling feminine and fashionable.
    At any rate, take care ladies, and thanks to the people who have this forum.

    Hi lyyi.
    Thanks for your nice reply.
    I have been bald with Alopecia Universalis since I was a child, for almost 25 years. I doubt my hair will grow after that many years, and I like the way I am.

    Years ago I learned about bald women who were fashion models, actresses, female singers in rock bands, etc..

    I liked the first star trek movie that had a beautiful bald woman in it whose name was Persis Khambatta, who played the role of Ilia in the movie, and she looked beautiful wearing her bald look. She had a guy in the movie that she dated named Decker.
    Persis Khambatta in real life had won a beauty contest, she was Miss India one year, some years ago. She was inspirational to many bald females.
    How long have you been bald?
    Take care lyyi.
