How to not look like a boy?

I was known for having Angel/Barbie/Rapunzel hair! I lost every single hair on my Body. I don't feel feminine or pretty anymore! I feel like Walking Dead. I overheard a Child say, I look like a Boy. We're still jobless here. Down on our luck. But I need to look better. At least if I look better it helps! Any ideas? I don't know how to look pretty with just 3" inches of the most unmanageable curly not me, Hair! Also I have brutal side effects from radiation and 3 brutal chemos. So I can't use my hands like I used to! How to look more feminine like this? Thank you for any replies or good suggestions. By finding out answers I can help others I meet. Being stranded again in 17" inches of snow here doesn't help!

  • First I am jealous of your snow! Where are you? Next, I am sorry for what you are going through.

    I would dye your hair something snazzy with little highlights get a pixie cut or something. Wear earrings that dangle. wear shirts with a pretty neckline, carry a cute purse, small heels necklace.. Really play up subtle jewelry. Wear make-up, just a little bit, maybe lip gloss. I think this will be over in no time don't worry. Look at Jamie lee Curtis and Jada pinket smith, they rock short hair! Keep your head up!!

  • Curly hair is normally considered VERY feminine... try letting it do as it will instead of fighting it. Headbands, ribbons are feminine. Makeup can help... but considering the men who wear it now...

  • I would play up your features with hoop earrings or any larger earrings and pretty makeup. Maybe you could try a bold lipstick in a color like red or a bright pink? Best wishes to you and a full recovery!
