I Am More Than My Hair: My Outward Appearance Does Not Define Me

Adult; Art & Photography; (Market)

Through the eyes and lens of photographer and filmmaker, Alyscia Cunningham, she has the profound ability to capture inner-beauty that captivates both viewers and readers. Cunningham is hoping to use her photographs to celebrate beauty of bald women with her new book, "I Am More Than My Hair", while raising awareness of alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair; baldness). "I Am More Than My Hair" features 138 portraits of 46 females and the stories of their experience with alopecia as well as females who cut their hair in solidarity of a loved one.

This Woman Put On A Badass Fashion Show With All Bald People

Despite our society’s attempts to distance itself from unrealistic beauty standards, there is still an undoubted and disappointing amount of weight centered on one’s appearance.

That notion rings true across many different aspects of the way a person looks, whether it be body shape, skin color, age ― or as Alyscia Cunningham has learned, hair. 

Cunningham is an author, filmmaker, photographer and speaker who became interested in the relationship between humans and their hair when she herself underwent a major haircut. Her latest project, “I Am More Than My Hair,” aims to destigmatize and celebrate baldness. 

Cunningham held a fashion show in April featuring men, women and children who are bald either as a result of a medical condition or to support a loved one. The show’s aim was to raise funds for a documentary about her project.

HuffPost chatted with her about how the idea came about and what inspires her to keep the movement going.
