At Salon NOVA we are on our second round of the apprentice program. Our first apprentice Heather has graduated and is now a licensed cosmetologist and currently works at Salon NOVA as Kim Legassie's (Owner of Salon NOVA) personal assistant. Keyana and Tess are our current apprentices. They are almost finished with our program, and just about finished their hours. I am so proud of their hard work, personal and professional growth.
As we are approaching the end of our Haircutting chapter we decided to do something fun and creative. We needed to break away from the structure and precision of haircutting and create something more abstract. I decided to have Tess and Keyana make a wig with yarn as an abstract haircutting exercise. We created these wigs by first mapping out what shape,style and color we wanted for our creations. Then we applied a wig cap to a manikin head. We had a variety of yarn colors and textures. We used a fast drying fabric glue, I left the application up to their own creativity. We discovered that we each had a different technique of application for this project, which was very fascinating. Below I have added a few photos of during our creative process.
The Photo Shoot
Below you will discover our completed wigs. Tess and Keyana are wearing the wigs they made. Tess was kind enough to be the model for my yarn wig creation. They each cut and fit the wigs to each other's heads to suit them properly.
Tess created a diagonal forward bob shape with a full fringe. She used a combination of soft pastel tones.
Keyana created a bob shape haircut with disconnection in the front wand an angled side fringe. She choose to use bold contrasting colors using a color blocking application.
I choose a asymmetrical bob shape with a full angled fringe. I used a variety of colors
Yarn never looked so sexy...
For the LOVE of hair and the beauty industry.
