What you'll learn in this hair class:

The Art of Wigs and Hair Design  at AMUA is a 5 month intensive program designed to prepare students to effectively design, create, and style wigs, facial hair, and faux fur. These skills can be adapted to careers in Entertainment, Theater, Film, TV, Medical, or Private Business.

From the very first day, students will learn through hands on experiences which is essential to the AMUA philosophy. Whether students are brand new in the field, or already working in the industry, these hands on learning experiences will allow for real time interaction with the professor, and help hone the student’s craft.

Students will be learning skills rooted in traditional techniques. This allows for consistent accuracy of product, and knowledge of how to correct inaccuracies. The use of cutting edge materials will prepare the students to enter their profession confident that they can meet any challenges.

Learning begins with understanding the tools, and laces of the trade. Within  week one, a student will have created their first facial hair piece, along with understanding the basics of period hairstyling. Students will rapidly progress into their first full wig construction, and over the course of the program will learn in depth how to style wigs from a great number of periods.

Valuable skills, from turning a standard commercial wig into a film or theater ready wig, all the way through to making a wig that is wearable in a real life scenario, will be addressed in the art of  wigs and hair program with the intent to give students a complete working knowledge of creation, cutting, and styling for most every possible scenario. All students completing this program will leave with an impressive portfolio.
