Teen who hid alopecia for nine years finally embraces condition by revealing her bald spots in modelling shots
Corinne Labbé, 19, from Montreal, Canada, was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease at ten-years-old and within a month was completely bald. Doctors said her hair would ‘never grow back’, leading her to hide beneath a wig and never discuss her alopecia with friends.
Even though doctors made her lose all hope of her hair ever growing back, Corinne's hair miraculously grew back a couple of years after her diagnosis, which baffled her doctors.
Corinne, an aspiring model, got signed by Dulcedo Management and hopes that her showing her condition will encourage others to have conversations about alopecia
She says: “I don’t want anyone else to feel the way I did, I want children with alopecia to feel beautiful and worthwhile.”
