pulling out her hair

I'm not sure if anyone else has this issue but our Mack is pulling out her hair and is getting very thin on the top of her head. I feel terrible every time I take her out of her crib. She pulls out handful after handful and plays with it. I'm not quite sure what to do. She still has her baby curls so I haven't found the guts to cut it super short but her hair pulling has become a problem.

I just wondered if anyone had any ideas. She does it when she is frustrated as well but many times it is when she is alone in her crib.
