Emily Kight, 27, from Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, USA, became addicted to hairpulling after being told her wishes would come true if she lucked out eyelashes and blew them at seven-years-old. Over time she developed trichotillomania, which progressed to her plucking out all her eyebrows and patches of hair on her head, as a way to deal with stress. She hid beneath wigs, hats and even pencilled in her eyebrows to blend in, but was regularly left crying in the bathroom after classmates cruelly called her ‘freak’ and ‘bald’.
