Period Hair MasterClass
During December I was thrilled to participate in a Period Hair MasterClass which is one of series being run by Creative Media Skills (CMS) www.creative-media-skills.com
CMS training is unique because it is only open to professional Hair and Makeup Artists.
I am ever so slightly obsessed with the history of hair and period drama so this was a wonderful opportunity.
The quality of CMS training is absolutely world class and the calibre of the tutors is outstanding – legendary in fact!
Their list of credits reads like an honours roll call. You feel like you’re in the midst of greatness and they are so approachable and accessible.
In a few short days you benefit from decades of experience and expertise that would otherwise take you years to acquire.
This Period Hair MasterClass was led by the hair designer Liz Michie, who has worked on films such as Captain America, Clash of The Titans and Elizabeth the Golden Age.
It was a wonderful experience. We sourced original historical images of Victorian hairstyles and watched as Liz expertly demonstrated how to recreate them. She made it look so effortless.
Then it was our turn – here’s the final result
It was a phenomenal experience and adds to my repertoire of period hair skills – here are a few snaps of my hair work from some other historical periods, including Tudor, Edwardian and 1940s.
