Don’t worry about perm rods or hair colour theory in this module. This is all about hair manipulation to slick styling. In the early eighties, with all the budgets cuts, producers started booking one person to process both hair and makeup. Today, a large part of the fashion side of the industry still follows this suite. The venue, budget and if the shoot is union or non-union, are factors which dictate whether one person will cover both hair and makeup or a team will be hired for each department. Hair Works encompasses all mediums within our industry. Makeup artists use their hair and wig styling skills in bridal, music videos, television broadcasts, corporate videos, non-union motion pictures, and theatre productions.
Contemporary stylings, blowouts, bouffants, messy avant-garde, to the precision of wig measurements, are some of the disciplines covered in this comprehensive course. This diversity prepares the graduate for greater employment opportunities.
