Wig Dressing & Styling

Wigs Dressing & Styling Course. Is there anything more dispiriting than watching a period drama with poorly fitted wigs?

It can make or break a film or TV production. Anne Hathaway, Broke back mountain; Halle Berry in X men and any character from Twilight. All the wigs at Christine Blundell Makeup academy are made on a fine lace and have been used on the big productions that she has worked on. This means they are of great quality. A perfect place to start understanding why and what.

Testimonials of  Wigs Dressing & Styling Course

Since leaving CBMA I have had to style, dress and apply so many wigs, so I am so grateful for how much wig work we learnt on the course. It is so highly requested on Films and TV productions, so it is a great skill to have!

I did want to mention that not long after completing the 4 weeks of Film and Theatre wigs module with CBMA I was super excited to get cracking to find work! My main passion was always Theatre and so I emailed as many theatres as I could asking if I could come in and do work experience or shadowing or anything!
