Bachelorette Ali more concerned about her hair than staples in head from kayak accident

The Bachelorette 6 star Ali Fedotowsky was injured in a kayaking accident on Sunday, but not enough to stop being concerned about her appearance and hair.

Her spokesperson told Us Weekly, “Ali and Roberto had a little mishap when their kayak capsized this weekend. Ali was taken to the hospital and had 5 staples put in her head. Roberto was fantastic– he kept her calm and took great care of her. She is doing fine, and actually off to work this morning.”

Ali reported the news of the accident on Twitter, and, most importantly, gave updates about the impact on her hair. After going kayaking with Roberto and others, she wrote that she “Made it out of the ER w/staples in my head & a little less hair after falling out of a kayak.”

Her hair made appearances in subsequent tweets. “I think I freaked out more when the doctor cut my hair rather than when he put staples into my head. Lol. Very thankful to be ok,” she wrote. While that seems like it could have been a joke, she was concerned enough about her hair to mention it yet again the next morning, writing that she had a “Big headache, but managed to hide staples w/hair part.”
