SALEM, Utah – A little girl who lost her hair from Alopecia celebrated “Crazy Hair Day” at school — in style!

In January, 7-year-old Gianessa Wride of Salem, Utah, began to lose her long brown hair. Before long, almost all of Gianessa’s hair had fallen out, FOX35 reported.

Gianessa eventually was diagnosed with Alopecia areata, a disorder that causes the body to attack hair follicles.

When Crazy Hair Day– now called Crazy Head Day– came around at school, Gianessa’s mom decided she should find a way for her daughter to celebrate.

Gianessa doesn’t wear wigs because they make her head itch. So for Crazy Hair Day, they got fancy with jewel stickers and decorated her head with pretty floral and owl designs. Her classmates loved the bling.
