The ultimate Beginners Course
These videos are great. I bought the knotting and foundation videos and I love how you explain and demonstrate everything step by step. You are a wonderful teacher. Thank you for making these videos Philip. I highly recommend these videos to anyone learning wig making at any level.
I wanted to study wig making and looked to the best in the industry for courses. The Wigs and Makeup Studio provides all you need to know about making foundations, choosing hair, how to knot etc in a very clear way. I really liked the oversized tools to help show the intricate techniques! It is easy to follow along to and I’ve made a huge start on my first wig. I have recommended the course to many of my friends in the industry.
I’m really enjoying my online course with The Wigs and Makeup Studio. Philip is a great teacher and it’s really helpful in my busy schedule to be able to learn online. Each module is very in depth on the particular subject and above all I love that once you’ve bought it you can always go back and refresh your knowledge at a later time. Anyone working in the industry who has a busy schedule and wants to learn knotting I have and will continue to recommend this course as it’s incredibly thorough and adaptable to your specific schedule
