Advanced Wig Work/18th Century Portrait

This look had a lot of behind the scenes work done to create it.

The wig was created using a total of 2 full wigs as well as a hair switch attached into the back. To create the shape under the hair, two metal cages were moulded out of chicken wire and attached onto the head.

Both wigs were moulded around the cages to create the final shape.

The models skin tone was lightened to match the original 18th century portrait painting and eyebrows were lightened.
