An Instagram video showing a woman with alopecia having a bald spot on the top of her head expertly covered, and her hair transformed into a beautiful low up-do, has gone viral. The internet loves a good makeover–this one has the added benefit of putting a normalizing spotlight on a symptom of a common autoimmune disease.
Hair stylist Ghazi, @ghazi_beauty_salon on Instagram, is located in Beirut, Lebanon, but his recent video is being shared by people around the globe.

The woman in the video is one of 147 million people around the world who have, or will someday have, alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that often results in hair loss.
Her bald patch poses little issue for the stylist who sets to work curling and pinning her hair, adding extensions to the back and teasing out parts. He then deftly works the woman’s long brown hair back and around, fixing it in the back for a resulting low up-do that is gorgeous. Like, wedding gorgeous. The salon does a lot of transformative hairstyles, but this one takes the cake. The woman’s bald spot is virtually indetectable, allowing her to enjoy her good hair day like anyone else who just walked out of a world-class hair stylist.
Instagram users have been showing their support and gratitude for the honest and helpful upload in the comments section.
“Thanx 4 showing us the REAL WORK /REAL STUFF… 👌🏾👍🏽Bless you all.. 🙏🏽,” wrote one user. “Her hair looks really lovely,” wrote another.
