Our studio is uniquely fortunate that with our two separate company divisions (feature film & television, and professional cosplay), and our staff working in our COVID-19 compliant main studio,
remotely from their home-ateliers, as well as our studio site-B, for their safety, our production has not been seriously affected by the global Pandemic.
We have been exceedingly fortunate to have maintained ourselves successfully through the last 9 months in order to be ready for the re-emergence of the entertainment industry, and the restarts of production.
While not business as usual for anyone during these times, we continue to move forward and wish everyone safety, calm, and prosperity as we collectively look toward the future.
Thank you everyone for your continued support.
HERO HAIR MAIN STUDIO
HERO HAIR's main New York studio is run by Founder /Head Wig Designer ERIN KENNEDY LUNSFORD (IATSE Hairstylists & Makeup Artists Local 798/ member of the Academy Of Television Arts And Sciences) and Co-Founder/ Creative Director TRAVIS COWSILL.
Full-time staffed by our professional, core creative team, Monday through Friday, with additional team members rotating in for specialized, task-oriented shifts, this primary, two-story, converted Brooklyn loft has been home to HERO HAIR's television, feature film, and professional cosplayer creations since 2015. The main studio features full film and television production capabilities, and amenities, and is conveniently located a short distance from the primary production stages (Steiner & Silvercup) in the area.
OUR SATELLITE STUDIO
HERO HAIR's secondary, satellite-studio site, known as The Hair Studio BK, is operated by HERO HAIR Wig Construction Specialist-In-Residency Sheri Newman, and HERO HAIR COO & Color & Cut Specialist-In-Residency Kaitlin Jaime. This site was created during New York's phased COVID re-opening as a safe space for our core staff to work together, while apart, as they practice stringent social distancing, mask use, and hygiene, abiding by all statewide guidelines and protocols within the "new normal."
While supervising the team's work virtually, from our main studio 1 (via Zoom), most days during production, HERO HAIR Founder ERIN KENNEDY LUNSFORD also has a safe, regular presence on-site at the satellite studio, guiding our team through every one of our client's custom builds assigned to them. The Hair Studio BK also serves as a burgeoning, full-service, by-appointment-only hair salon for greater NYC. You can follow them on Instagram @thehairstudiobk and, soon on the web at www.thehairstudiobk.com.
We will be spotlighting more of this secondary studio space in the weeks and months to come, and the various projects our amazing team brings to life there for HERO HAIR.
HERO HAIR is the first and only custom wig & facial hair studio owned and operated by actual, working television and feature film industry artists. Meet our core team below in their bios! You can also learn about just some of the amazing television and film productions our studio has been fortunate to be a part of by visiting our official Instagram @officialherohair.
