Here are some photos from my photoshoot.
this last picture means a huge deal for me and I cannot believe I am posting this up for all to see. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Universalis since I was a baby and have never had the pleasure of having a full head of hair. All my life I've had low self esteem because of it although I think I hide it pretty well because everyone seems to think I am really confident (it's all a lie, I act this way because I hate being pitied) but now at the ripe old age of 30 something I decided it's time to face my fears and show my true self. When I mentioned to the modelling agency that I have alopecia they were excited because it meant I had a unique look.
So now the secret is out, my hair is only a wig which I only started wearing properly a few months ago. All this while I would only wear a scarf because wearing a wig felt too weird for me. But I love it now! I wish I could afford to buy more. It's so much fun!
Wow, I still cannot believe I am doing this but like I said it's time to face my fears and I would like the public to be more aware of Alopecia.
If you know anyone with this condition and need someone to talk to please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to help. You can find my email on the sidebar.
Thanks for listening xxx
