Henna crowns: ‘hair’ for a cancer patient

25 Oct 2017 14:38

For many people, losing your hair as a result of treatment can be extremely upsetting. But one person has decided to do something totally different and has come up with an alternative to wearing a wig or hat. While it might not be a look that everyone can pull off, we do think that she looks rather fabulous. 

Abi, who’s supporting Stand Up To Cancer this month, lost her hair during treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma. She says she found it difficult at first and struggled to come to terms with her new appearance.

In this uplifting video Abi meets henna tattoo artist Ash, and shows off a glittering, eye-catching look that she described as “a real image of beauty through adversity”. What do you think? Happy
