BN Bridal Beauty: No Mane? No Problem! Joy Adenuga Shows us Beauty is Beyond Hair for Brides with Alopecia



Stellar makeup artist Joy Adenuga has released a new bridal beauty lookbook, inspired by a real bride who has alopecia. As a type of hair loss, alopecia occurs when your immune system attacks your hair follicles, where the growth of your hair begins. Read more about it here. Speaking on the influence behind these photos to BellaNaija Weddings, Joy said;

I was inspired by a bride whom I recently had a bridal consultation with. She had a bad case of alopecia and her confidence was at an all time low. Seeing her beautiful delightful reaction to the finished look gave me so much joy and the inspiration to do a beauty lookbook focussing on just makeup. From a simple natural look created with hues of natural browns to a classic red lip look and a glitter based look that will be perfect for the reception look.

    Amazing shots… However… With all due respect, if I had an esteem dip cos of alopecia, stumbling on these photos would worsen it.

    She looks beautiful without natural mane. However, a bride in any hair dilema can get a fix with a beautiful lace wig.

    This is not alopecia. Alopecia is when you are bald. There a quite a few women who have this condition and refuse to wear wigs. They are confident in their bodies and are beautiful . The lady in the photographs has a very low cut, not alopecia.

      Ermmm… this is not a bride with Alopecia. She ‘had’ a bride with alopecia. No where in this article did she say this model has alopecia. She probably got someone with a low cut to showcase the makeup.
