35cm Hair Donation Cut Live on Stage while interviewing a CEO bald with Alopecia:
Thousands of Australians suffer from Alopecia – an autoimmune disease which results in varying degrees of hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere on the body.
The disease usually presents itself in childhood, and there are hundreds of children suffering with Alopecia who are in need of quality wigs. Which is why we’re raising awareness by teaming up with Variety, the Children’s Charity, and holding a ‘Hair With Heart’ night at The Curate Space.
Chloe Beevers, Founder of The Curate Space, will be making a 35cm hair donation live on the night courtesy of stylist Christopher Kapetanov from Preen; and Rebecca Saunders, Founder & CEO of the Deli Agency, will be sharing her inspiring journey which has thrived personally and professionally despite experiencing Alopecia Universalis (complete hairlessness) since the age of 7.
Hair and profits collected on the night will be donated to Variety so that wigs can be made for children suffering with Alopecia Areata.
What is Alopecia?
Alopecia is an auto-immune disease that results in hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere on the body. It can range from small, individual smooth patches of hair loss, to total loss of all hair on the body – including ear and nose hair. Alopecia Areata is not uncommon, and current estimates suggest that 2% of the population will be affected by the condition at some point in their lifetime. It can affect people all ages, genders and ethnicity, but most commonly presents during childhood.
About Hair With Heart
Donations of hair are made into specialised wigs for those who have lost their hair due to a medical condition such as alopecia or cancer. Variety raises funds through the sale of the hair which is then used to provide equipment and services to children in need so your hair can help in more ways than one!
