Hi! I’m Carly Severn, a Brit based in the San Francisco Bay Area. When I was 19, I lost all my hair — including my eyebrows and eyelashes — to an surprisingly common autoimmune condition called alopecia.
Why I Do This
I’m passionate about a number of things (horror movies, dachshunds, English Breakfast Tea) but chief among them is that people going through the same thing should never feel like crap because they have no hair. That's why I've want to freely share the headwear and makeup tricks I’ve developed over the years. Regardless of whether a person's hair loss is due to alopecia, chemotherapy or another cause, I truly hope that these tutorials will make them feel a little more in control of how they look and feel.
Wait, Looking For My Other Work?
I’m also a writer and radio/podcast creator (and co-host of KQED’s The Cooler podcast), so if you’re because you’re looking for that stuff, go here!
