“Baby Let Your Hair Hang Down” is a feature length documentary that joins former hair model Georgia Van Cuylenburg on her journey from discovery to acceptance of life with the autoimmune disease – Alopecia Areata (immune related hair loss). The film also includes interviews and testimonials with doctors, hair and cosmetic professionals, friends, family and entertainment industry colleagues.
Before her health condition, Georgia relied heavily on her appearance while she worked as a hair model, actress and comedian. After losing her hair she was forced to completely reassess the career and life she had chosen for herself. After much thought and reflection, Georgia decided to share her experience dealing with Alopecia Areata and educate a wide audience on this little known disease. The viewers see first hand Georgia’s tears, pain and triumphs as she allowed cameras into her daily life to show what it is like to be a woman with hair loss, especially one who relies on her appearance to make a living. Georgia has since dedicated her life to helping people and children to love themselves just the way they are, hair or no hair. Van Cuylenburg says about her experience, “Life is not about the hair on your head, it is about the lessons you learn, the friends you find and the difference you can make.”
