Of Our Work
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.
HERO HAIR’s remastering of actor Zendaya's/Anne Wheeler's, & actor Keala Joan Settle's/The Bearded Lady's featured (center ring) performance, pre-existing wigs included the following details- A full aesthetic/corrective re-design of the hairline perimeters (front, temples & nape) removing and replacing them 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-depth study of both actors' naturally existing borders) and a partial hairline-to-crown trajectory remapping through our exclusive "Hair-Directional Growth-Pattern-Plotting™," programming the illusion of life into every custom piece we create.
HERO HAIR Founder, Erin Kennedy Lunsford, a key hairstylist for "The Greatest Showman," was on set with all custom pieces created by our studio, with the production further benefiting from HERO HAIR's exclusive beyond-the-sale services around our work, including in-person wig-technician production crewing on set as an adjunct, orbital support department (Key) to HMU (Hair & Makeup) representing our bran, providing the following- Wig and hairpiece initial concept styling & application for first camera tests and continuity, applications and last-looks styling management assist during filming of all wig & hairpiece applications created by our HERO HAIR, and de-wigging of our actors (working under the supervision of the Hair Dept. Head).
HERO HAIR additionally provided our exclusive REFRESH, RESET & RESTYLING™ services for all of our custom pieces created for the production, between shooting days.
