The Art of Wigs and Hair Program
We are happy to say that ours will be the only private makeup school in U.S. providing this type and level of program. Students will learn a lot of intricacies and complexities of wig making, starting from simple facial hair techniques to advanced wig making and period styling techniques. Each student will be provided with a professional styling and wig construction kit. And like our other programs, this one will be hands-on from day one.
