Lace Front Wigs The Art of ’Character’ Transformation
Lace Front Wigs
The ‘traditional’ use of wigs being mainly used in Film, TV and on Stage to allow actors to undergo elaborate transformations has in recent years seen a complete re-invention – with more and more top artists (Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Nicky Minaj) choosing increasingly outrageous styles to shape and play with their public image, while also being able to protect their own, natural hair at the same time.

This course-module has been designed to guide you through various styling demands – from styling ‘period’ wigs for Film/TV – to creating modern, artistic styles.
