The issue of female hair loss was pushed to the front burner during this month’s Hair Loss Awareness month campaign. Men account for the lion’s share of the $3.5 billion that IBISworld reported is spent on hair loss and thinning products. But women represent the biggest growth opportunity, with volume expanding more than 40 percent a year.
Women traditionally have been reluctant to discuss thinning tresses. “They will tell you almost anything — Botox, collagen — they will not historically talk about losing hair,” said Melisse Shaban, founder and chief executive officer of Virtue Labs, a hair-care line that treats underlying damage to restore healthy locks. “It is such a mortifying and embarrassing condition. Now the shame is gone, and people are telling each other what has worked for them.”
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business. Not only will the actor appear in its global ad campaigns, but he will also create a capsule with designer Stuart Vevers. Tap the link in our bio to learn more. #wwdfashion
“The name of the show is GP — giant pockets,” said Karl Lagerfeld pre-show, in his backstage meeting room at @Fendi to Bridget Foley. @Bellahadid was one of the many famous faces who graced the catwalk including @Gigihadid, @Adwoaaboah, and yes, even @Kendalljenner. #wwdfashion
