We've just finished picking up all of the bobby pins off the studio floor, and we predict that a few more times conditioning our hair that it will look just as it did before all the back combing!
It was a great weekend here at Titanic Creative Management HQ. We had one of our favourite people, Mr. Andrew Whiteoak, over in Belfast to share his skills.
Andrew, in case you didn't know is an extremely accomplished wig maker and hair stylist who has worked on massive projects such as Downtown Abbey, Jericho, Houdini and Doyle as well as countless plays and musicals at The Birmingham Rep Theatre. You can read all about him on his lovely website.

Andrew's laid back teaching style put the room at ease, and the atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant, however this isn't to say that hard work wasn't underway.
Styles from the Edwardian era until the 1960's were covered by everyone over the course of the two days.
Have a look at some of the great hairstyles our course participants created!
A very slick and polished 1940's style (is that you, Betty Grable?)
An elegant Edwardian hairstyle, soft ringlets, half up and half down.

At Titanic Creative Management, we have always encouraged professional MUAs to ensure they have as many strings to their bow as they can manage. In an extremely competitive industry, having a skill like hairstyling and knowledge of period/ vintage style gives you an edge; that edge can be the difference between you getting the job over someone who does not possess that skill.
We are pleased our participants have taken the opportunity to learn important, career enriching expertise.
If you would like to learn something new, develop a skill or just challenge yourself, make sure to look at our upcoming courses. We are the only organisation in Northern Ireland that provides education of SFX/ Prosthetic (amongst other topics) to a professional level.
Have a look at our courses and book yourself on one, our students only have nice things to say!
If you were on a course and enjoyed it, let us know!
Til next time!
