I wanted to put my Repunzel character in my portfolio cause its something im really proud of. It took up alot of my time as I spent hours making the 3 meter long platt with two different colours of hair in it. It also shows in this picture that I have a good eye for colour, props, costume and creative hairdressing. Creating this character and doing hair extensions as an assessment has made me realise that I still need to improve on my hair skills and I’m going to look at some short courses to help me get better at doing hair style this is an important skill to have as a make up artist because clients are more likely to go with you if you can do Make-up AND Hair it will be needed for TV/FILM, Theatre and Weddings.

Why Applied Postiche and Wigs are Important to me

So I thought it is really relevant and I can use this portfolio to help me get a job in the theatre and show them my work and what I can do. The ageing process is also relevant to theatre this is a popular technique used in many theatre productions so i am glad I did ageing as an assessment in year 1. I found making the postiche side burns extremely difficult and challenging at first but I kept with it and once I got the hang of it (after weeks of only doing a few knots and tears from myself) I was really proud of the end result I had. Doing these assessments have made me want to improve my skills more and attend a wigs up north course.
