Level Two Working with Wigs by Chelsea Kerr
January 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm MST
Now that you have the basic wig work under your belt lets expand your knowledge on styling and shaping! Rather than simply ‘shake and go’ out of the bag, let’s customize that wig to complete the perfect look for yourself and/or your client. There are many different methods to achieving the style you need, this workshop will explore Chelsea’s favorite methods.
Chelsea is a professional stylist in Edmonton and wig technician working theatre and film. Chelsea’s specialty is building and styling for her Drag King and Queen clients.
In this workshop Chelsea will demonstrate her techniques. There will be some hands-on work as well for each student. This workshop will cover:
- Using steam rather than heat to shape a wig
- Learn how to do professional roller sets
- Creating extreme volume using rats and teasing methods
- Practice creating different textures and braids
- How to build anime looks that last (spiking and firm styles)
- Learn to block lace, cut and shape
- Learn how to cut bangs and general clean-up of hair/wigs
