An Uncommon Beauty

Anthony Griffin001

Hair is regarded as a reflection of our identity due to its personal and public nature. From the earliest times, people have taken care of their appearance and pursued ways to personalise their looks or obtain social rewards through grooming and decoration. This desire to groom and beautify the body is regarded as an inherent part of being human, with hair remaining as a symbol of femininity and beauty.

Alopecia, an autoimmune condition that results in varying degrees of hair loss from any part of the body, and 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, philosophy and even religion. Women with alopecia are very often required to adapt to the condition, rather than look for a cure for which there is none.
