A woman has proved people shouldn't be defined by their hair when she took off her wig for her engagement photos.

Mackenzie Meaux suffers from Alopecia, an incurable condition, where the immune system attacks hair follicles, leaving the recipient completely hairless.

"Nothing else is wrong with the body other than hair will not grow which as you can imagine for a young girl, is a huge confidence killer. A women’s hair is their beauty and a main part of their self image. I experienced lots of bullying in the early years and along the way I lost all hope that I could ever feel beautiful again," she wrote on The Frost Collective.

The 21-year-old was diagnosed with the disease at the age of eight, and has been wearing a wig ever since. However, during her engagement photo shoot with her fiance, Bryan, Meaux decided to take off her wig.
