Women experience many changes after pregnancy, and for Shay, a huge change has been to her hairline. 

During a recent episode of Vanderpump Rules, Shay could be seen wearing a high ponytail at an event. According to People, the reality star received negative comments about her looks after the episode aired. Taking to Instagram Story, Shay left a message for the trolls and critics who came for her hair. 

“To everyone who has commented on my hairline tonight: this was already my biggest insecurity and legit the only thing I usually would facetune,” she said. “After having a baby, I have postpartum hair loss.”

Shay continued, “It is slowly coming back but I’m also still pumping milk every 3 hours since Summer stopped latching. Not sure if breastfeeding is related to the hair thinning also but it’s happening to me. My hair was coming out in chunks. Next time think before you comment.”

Scheana Shay has used microblading on her hairline

This is not the first time Shay has had issues with her hairline. Back in 2019, The Blast reported on Instagram Story videos of Shay getting her hairline microbladed. 

“Literally my biggest insecurity is my hairline,” Shay said in a video. “It’s, like, the only thing I have my sister face-tune on my photos. I had someone recently ask if I got a forehead reduction and I was like, ‘No, that’s face-tune.’”

Shay is notorious for only taking pictures of her “good side,” and she explained that this was because of the differences in her hairline across her face.

“Maybe now after this I’ll have two good sides,” Shay said.
