A photographer from Birmingham transformed women with alopecia into dazzling lingerie models to show that bald is also beautiful.
Photographer Chrissy Sparks hopes her project will show that women can also look stunning without the conventional beauty standards.
Together with her stylist Nav Soroya, they spent hours transforming every alopecia sufferers, most of which had developed the condition during their childhood.
Even though they were never pictured without their wigs on before, these strong women embraced their baldness for the seductive photos, and they were also amazed by their own transformations.
34-year-old Natasha Lachs from Northumberland said: “I have had alopecia since I was seven. I never really liked looking at pictures of myself, and I would also never dream of having my pictures taken without my wig on.
“I usually feel unfeminine without my hair, however when I saw these DollHouse pictures I actually cried.
“I was overwhelmed with how beautiful I actually looked. Who would have thought I could look sexy without my wig on! They have made me feel like a million dollars.”
35-year-old Chrissy opened her studio DollHouse Photography 5 years ago and she has taken photos of thousands of women of all sizes and shapes. She wanted women to feel stylish and show any insecurities they might had before did not matter.
“My stylist Nav Soroya and I wanted to show how women can look glamorous without fitting the typical beauty stereotype you tend to see in the media – and we wanted to support the unconventional beauty standards,” Chrissy shared.
“Not only this, but we also wanted to show women how we can successfully style and photograph our clients regardless of any physical concerns – after all, we all have them and, for us, it is gratifying for these insecurities not to inhibit the success of a shoot.”
20-year-old Danielle Atkins said: “I’ve had alopecia since I was two. It started with a tiny patch on the top of my head which was dismissed as “baby alopecia” which would go away.
“However, it never did. I was utterly amazed when I saw the final DollHouse images! I absolutely loved them and it definitely shows that bald can be beautiful and sexy.
“I love transforming myself with makeup, clothes and wigs, but this was the first time with the wig off, I felt amazing.
“Before the shoot I felt that because we don’t fit the typical stereotype of beauty that we can’t model or be within the beauty industry.
“But the shoot shows that we too can be as beautiful as the commercial models you see in the media.”
Chrissy also teamed up with Panache, a group that aims to support people who suffer with hair loss.
A spokesperson for Panache said: “We want men, women, and children to know that bald is beautiful too, and that you’re 100% not alone on this journey, we are here for you.
“We aim to bring the hair loss community together. Our vision is to create a hub for the hair loss community to feel comfortable, supported, find friendship and no longer feel isolated.”
