What you'll do

Guests will learn how to make their very own human hair wig! ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED AT NO EXTRA CHARGE! Guests will work with various items like human hair, different hair dyes (optional & extra 15), scissors, sewing supplies, a head canvas, a wig cap to create a wig of their liking, etc... The whole process takes around 8 to 10 hours. The process involves measuring head size, picking color and texture of wig, measuring the head to pick a canvas size, marking the wig, sewing the wig, and other finishing touches. All materials are included and guests will get freebies to take home!

When you arrive, I ask that you wear a mask and wash your hands when you arrive for 20 seconds minimum. I will provide hand sanitizers at every station, tissues and a case of wipes. All styling and sewing tools will be sanitized before you arrive. When you are ready to head out, please drop all tools used in the bucket to sanitize. Clean up all the trash and throw it out. Help me create a clean space so that I can make sure you and everyone else’s health is not compromised!

Then end goal:
• You will leave my class with EXPERIENCE and expertise in the beauty of wig making
• You will have a new connection in the beauty industry
• You will no longer be a beginner
• You will take your very own handmade wig along with some freebies and a HUGE feeling of accomplishment

I have been making wigs for the past 5 years. I found the art of wig making after years of fear that I would damage my hair for trying new things. I have learned many aspects of it from making wigs to styling to installing them! There’s many ways wigs benefit us. One of the ways wigs impacted me is watching customers’ confidence sky rocket when they wear a beautiful wig. Another way I was impacted is the aspect of protecting ones natural hair by trying out different styles and colors on hair that is on the wig while ones hair is safely tucked underneath it!

I have done many jobs but none gave me the same satisfaction that wig making gave me. I am passionate and will always give 150% to my students and have 4+ years of customer service experience. I am fairly new to the area although I am from the DMV so I lived near here for 11 years.

Where you'll be

Located next to an outdoor mall in a residential area! The mall is gorgeous and I recommend checking it out before or after your experience. There is little to no traffic and very easy parking. We are near the highway and many restaurants. Inside the building we will be working in the common area space that has lots of counter space, tables, chairs and a couch. The area is very clean and neat. It is not busy often and will be reserved for class.
