The revolutionary hair mesh, known as The Intralace System, acts as a barrier whilst filling in the patches on Rebecca's scalp where her hair has been pulled out.

The pair tied the knot on July 10 and Rebecca hasn't pulled her hair since the hair technology was fitted in April.

Lucinda Ellery, who has hair extensions and hair loss management studios in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Los Angeles and New York, said: 'Hair can be so important to a women's confidence so losing hair through TTM often leaves a woman feeling humiliated so many suffer in silence, hiding the condition from everyone. 'The Intralace System is not a cure for hair pulling but it can serve as a barrier and reminder for the individual to not pull their hair and it has transformed the lives of thousands of women around the world. We wish all the best to this happily married copuple.
