This girl wasn't going to let alopecia stop her from celebrating 'Crazy Hair Day'

SALEM, UT -- This seven-year-old has a sparkling spirit, with accessories to match.

Gianessa Wride was recently diagnosed with alopecia. The auto-immune condition caused all of her hair to fall out.

But that didn’t stop her from making the most of her school’s Crazy Hair Day.

She and her mom, Daniella Wride, decided to bedazzle Gianessa’s head with stick-on jewels. The glittering owls, flowers, and her all-around style won Gianessa the best Crazy Hair of the day.

Mom and daughter have embraced the condition with Gianessa rocking scarves and other beautiful head accessories.

“She's is so brave and beautiful,” says Daniella Wride. “The sheer determination and confidence rolls off in waves from this tiny girl. I just love her!”


To celebrate, Gianessa's mom got creative and decorated her head with colorful stickers and jewels so she didn't feel left out. She then shared the finished creation on Instagram.
