Harriet Thorpe

During my training, my enthusiasm about wigs became quite evident. Starting from making wefts, to knotting a full lace wig. As well as being a Hair and Makeup artist, I do a lot of wig outwork for different companies, as well as making wigs for the charity, The Little Princess Trust. These skills have been particularly useful in the larger scale productions such as Bridgerton and The Flash – from hair line adjustments, to a set of sidies needing to be made last minute! I have worked on numerous productions for various designers such as: Louise Coles, Nicole Stafford and Marc Pilcher. Having been on both main team and in crowd on the same production a number of times, I’ve been able to see it from all angles. Constantly learning from the incredible people that work in this industry.
