Arab people use this goop stuff that they rub around the nose and the eyes to have those features "stand out" so to speak. :) So it's not necessarily a loss of hair, just gooped with shiny stuff. An arab showing tradition!

Koomy56 is right, there's nothing wrong with the picture ;) A cheap way of achieving the same end is to use Vaseline
