Black Venus Beauty is more than an online beauty store. It is a space where we want to have conversations around hair and skin knowing that some topics are more difficult to talk about. Hair loss is one of them and we want to break the taboo around alopecia.
As part of Alopecia Awareness Month here at Black Venus Beauty, we want to raise awareness. We believe that more awareness should be raised so anyone suffering from alopecia does not feel ashamed and knows that help and various solutions are available.
In our previous blogs, we talked about wigs and camouflage. Here's our last part with headwear.
MASUMI HEADWEARAli Nowroozi is the proud owner of Masumi Headwear, and offers headwear for those suffering from hair loss due to medical treatments or alopecia.
Before founding the company in 2015 in Manchester, Ali worked in the wig industry for 11 years and realised the vulnerability of cancer patients. At the time, he only saw unexciting headwear designs made for practical reasons. Ali yearned to create a superior alternative to help people experiencing hair loss from alopecia, chemotherapy and cancer.
It was also for personal reasons that he started Masumi Headwear. Ali was inspired by his wife’s story as she experienced hair loss as a teenager when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. They do both understand how hair loss knocks confidence and leaves emotional scars.
Ali wanted to offer comfortable, fashionable and feminine headwear. His headwear are either made of silky-soft cotton or organic bamboo fibres, making it suitable for everyday use, as well as for wearing on those special occasions.
