An Uncommon Beauty
Hair is regarded as a reflection of our identity due to its personal and public nature. The desire to beautify the body is regarded as an inherent part of being human, with hair remaining as a symbol of femininity and beauty. Alopecia can result in social phobia, anxiety and depression, especially for women for whom a deep, personal relationship between hair and self-esteem has existed throughout history and cultures. For some, to dispense with a wig or to shave their head is a decision made over a long period of time, which offers the chance to redefine both themselves and the concept of beauty - their own and that of other people.
