Wigs 101 - Care, Styling and Altering

Teen Staycation

Learn how to care for your wig to make it last as long as you can. We will also talk a bit about how to style and restyle the same wig, so you can use it for multiple costumes. If you students want to try all the techniques workshop-style, you will need:

- At least one wig

- A stand or wig head

- A wig brush or wide tooth comb

- Elastics, bobby pins

- A steamer, curling iron, flat iron 

- Some spare wefts, with a sewing needle and heavy-duty thread

For ages 13-18. Registrants will receive an additional email with the Zoom link ahead of the program.
