Marina Diamandis has opened up for the first time about the moment she realised that her hair was falling out. The Marina And The Diamonds frontwoman had a bad experience with a hair salon in LA in November, which resulted in a large amount of her hair coming out. She’s been wearing a wig ever since.

Talking to The Sun, she said: “It literally fell out. I went to this hairdresser in LA before a shoot, and she just f**ked it up. She was blowdrying my hair and said, ‘You’ve got a bit of breakage at the back’. I looked around and a lot had just snapped off at two inches. A week later I had it all cut really short.”

She added: “I bought a wig and painted the roots black and wore a ribbon over it, so it looked natural. And the ribbon became part of my look. I wore the wig for nine months. Nobody knew… It’s only now that my hair is long enough to look natural. Wigs are fun, but I never felt beautiful in a wig.”

We still think she looked beautiful, and would never have guessed! We heart you, Marina… RM
