Everyone knows that America’s Next Top Model is famous for giving its competitors brand new looks each season with Tyra Banks’ infamous Ty-overs. Every season we watch girls either jumping up and down for their new hairstyles, or we watch an inevitable breakdown (usually from a girl who doesn’t want the pixie cut Tyra chose for her.) But this season, Jeana got emotional for an entirely different reason.
Jeana has had a complicated relationship with her hair, having lost it due to her alopecia. She usually covers up with a wig, but Tyra wants her to embrace her bald, natural beauty. She wants “to show people that it’s okay to be bald and that bald is beautiful. Losing your hair is beautiful.”
That doesn’t mean that it’s easy for her, though. In this emotional highlight, Jeana even has Law Roach in tears as he holds her hand. Grab some tissues and watch the clip above !
See how these ladies rock their new signature looks next week on America’s Next Top Model
