Because she finds wigs itchy, Gianessa opts for accessories like beanies and headscarves. However, when her school announced it would be having a Crazy Hair Day, Gianessa’s mother, Daniella, didn’t want her to miss out.
So, after a bit of trial and error with things like body paint and temporary tattoos, Daniella finally found the perfect way to decorate her daughter’s head: scrapbook jewels.
Not only did Gianessa love her bejewelled look, but so did her friends — so much so that she was named best “crazy hair” in her class.
While some people who suffer from alopecia do experience hair regrowth, it’s believed that Gianessa will be bald for the rest of her life. But that doesn’t seem to phase her.
