7 Day Intensive Wig Making Course

Our 7-Day Intensive Course runs for a straight 7 days and particularly appeals to Overseas students and those living outside of London who want to learn as much as possible in as short a time as possible to save on accommodation costs etc. It is fast-paced and hard work but extremely rewarding with rapid progress in skills being mastered.

With only a maximum of 6 students per course, there is plenty of 1-1 time with course Tutor, Philip Carson-Sheard.
