Diagnosed with Alopecia at the age of 6, Brittany La Bella the Hair Artist has used alopecia as the fuel to drive her passion for helping others to cope with the condition and generate more of an awareness.
“At the age of 18 the doctor told me I would be completely bald.”
At this point Brittany realized that a change needed to be made. She purposed within herself that she would embrace alopecia and help others to do so as well.
“Being so limited with styles forced the creativity right out!”
Becoming skillful at concealing her glabrous areas she developed many techniques that she still uses on her clients today with much success. Through her experiences in dealing with Alopecia she realized the lack of compassion and accommodation that exists within most beauty salons regarding the condition.
