Course Description

Every piece of a film project has to feel authentic to bring the viewer into its world. From sets to props to wardrobe, each element is essential for success – but with the screen time and close-ups that the Hair department can expect, the need to get the look right is more important than ever.

Hair is an element both of character and of realism in film. It grounds the film in a moment in time, a place, and a socio-cultural context, and any errors in design can take the viewer out of the story. Being able to create looks that are appropriate to the historical and cultural context of a story is essential, whether the project is Marie Antoinette or Derry Girls.

This 21-hour Micro-Credential will give an overview of hair styling practices from ancient times to the modern era, will focus on techniques and materials needed to authentically recreate these fashions, and will include practical, hands-on projects in studying, designing, and executing a historically inspired look.
