Fast forward the clock…

Quite often we ‘step back in time’ on our Period Courses but the opposite occurred on our Basic Prosthetics Course last week.  Our students usually create monster, zombie or animal characters but our 16-Week CMUA chose to transform each other into elderly men and women.

The styles were created using hairpieces, weft and the model’s own hair. The students also had to display a variety of skills such as … Continue reading
