Woman Proves Bald Is Beautiful As She Lands Modeling Job After Embracing Her Alopecia.
It's difficult to imagine that this is the same Therese, who had initially kept the truth a secret for years.
The Swedish model admits that she was very sensitive about her condition at first. So, whenever someone asked her about her hair, she knew what to say to keep them from guessing the truth. Today, though, the truth is out and so are her wigs.
Now and then, she might don a wig or two to take a selfie while playing in front of the mirror.
The only regret Therese has in life is not having realized that it was okay to go out into the world with her alopecia. Fortunately, it's never too late, and she's certainly embraced her looks and she has her friend to thank for that.
Therese only told a few close friends about her condition, and it was a friend who gave her a boost.
If her friend hadn't pushed her to reveal her bald head, Therese would probably not be working for GC Management, a modeling agency. Now she's doing what she loves the most, modeling, and her loved ones are so proud of her.
Therese also wants to offer some advice and guidance to those who have been afflicted with alopecia.
She's admitted that if she could go back in time, she'd tell her younger self not to hide because it only makes you feel worse and insecure. "A big stone of relief will leave your body if you can just be yourself," she added.
The 26-year-old model believes that the only people worth keeping are those who accept you.
For Therese, losing the wig has been a liberating experience on a professional as well as a personal level. But she didn't do it alone. The day she went out in public with no hair, she had a friend by her side. Her friend was also going bald, but they decided to go out in a town where no one knew them.
