I will never forget the look on my mother's face when she saw herself with a full head of hair again. As hairstylists, we get to change people's perceptions about how they feel about themselves. And I could see that my lace wig had done that for her in a real way. As a woman, our hair is our crown and glory. And for men, when they lose that defining piece of themselves, they want to get it back also. What we do as wigmakers is beyond meaningful.
In the years that followed my mother's diagnosis, I mastered the art of wig making and began teaching my method to others. I have mentored professionals in the film and theatre industry and trained hairstylists from all around the world. I've guided mothers who want to make wigs for their daughters suffering from alopecia, and I've even had the pleasure of showing cosplayers how to make wigs, and men and women who themselves suffer from hair loss. And that's just the beginning, this industry is so big, and the need for great wigs is in such high demand, especially with hair loss at levels we've never seen before.
Not long ago, after a ten year battle with cancer, my mother passed away the day after Mother's Day. The pain of grief was indescribable. But I've got more than a little bit of my mother in me. I am grateful for the time I got to spend with her, and I take joy from every single wig that my students make because I get to relive the moment my mother wore her first wig!
Helping people with their hair is a very personal experience. They come in feeling one way, maybe feeling down, feeling low. But when they walk out, it's like they're a brand new person.
I want to create that feeling for you. My Lace Wig Mentorship Program was inspired by mother, and by all the men and women who have taken my classes and used them to transform not only their lives but also the lives of their clients.
The work we do is so important.
In the Lace Wig Mentorship Program, you will find people like you. You will find a sisterhood… a brotherhood… a fellowship of wigmakers who will lift you up just as you lift them.
This Lace Wig Mentorship Program is my legacy event. Whether you are new to wig-making or very experienced, you will leave this mentorship program with everything you need to be extremely successful.
