Trichoscopy of trichotillomania is characterized by presence of hairs broken at different length, black dots, trichoptilosis, coiled hairs, flame hairs, V-sign and tulip hairs [13].
Moreover exclamation mark hairs, yellow dots and upright regrowing hairs may be observed [13]. Other characteristic, but rarely described trichoscopic findings include hair powder and follicular microhemorrhages [13, 14].
