HERO HAIR: The REEL Wig Experience™ was honored to have provided our studio's custom "Corrective Remastering™" services for Jane Krakowski’s principal hero-wig, for the role of
“The Countess” for principal
photography of Apple TV+'s
production of “SCHMIGADOON!"
During a production, wigs and facial hair often require reparative servicing and restoration, or even what’s called re-fronting , where the entire front hairline is removed and reconstructed in order to extend the lifespan of the wig for the current shoot, or for future use on other productions.
Our "Corrective Remastering™,"
a term and process exclusive to HERO HAIR, goes beyond those expected industry norms.
Ours is a highly detailed protocol we provide when a production contacts our studio to significantly revise a wig’s (or facial hair’s) existing aesthetic design, structural elements or quality, or all of those details combined, and for a variety of reasons.
Remastering by HERO HAIR can run the range from a complete hairline aesthetic re-design to hyper-accurately
Of Our Work
the actor’s own, or simply look more natural, to adding additional (or reducing) foundation coverage to correctly meet the actor’s existing natural hairline boarder, to complete reworking and application of color and other elements, such as decreasing, or increasing hair volumes. In this case, HERO HAIR provided a nearly complete corrective-remastering of the preexisting wig due to elements the production wanted revised.
HERO HAIR’s remastering of Jane Krakowski's pre-existing wig included the following details- A full aesthetic/corrective re-design of the complete hairline perimeter (forehead, temples & nape) removing and replacing it with our studio’s exclusive "HERO-Hairline™," the faithfully reproduced, hyper-accurate hairline of the original actor, subject or visual source reference, (in this case, that of our in-person study of the actor's naturally existing border), a complete hairline-to-crown trajectory remapping through our exclusive "Hair-Directional Growth-Pattern-Plotting™," programming the illusion of life into every custom piece we create, and a complete central crown-part aesthetic/corrective re-design and replacement.
Further revisions included a complete color stripping and corrective re-toning of the entire (preexisting) piece through HERO HAIR's exclusive "TRUE-Hue™" physical color grading for photography, and, finally, adding additional foundation coverage to correctly meet the actor’s naturally existing hairline border. .
