Review:

'It is the perfect addition to the collection of any wig styling enthusiast. It is an in-depth, focused approach to wig styling, printed 100 percent in color and presented in a beautiful binding. The book has a very conversational tone and easy-to-follow instructions that make it accessible for a variety of professions and skill levels. It is truly a gem for a burgeoning or experienced wig stylist...This is certainly a book to purchase purely for the thorough photographic instructions, beautiful printing, and practical binding. Historical Wig Styling will teach new techniques to beginning stylists and enhance the knowledge of the more experienced. As Lowery puts it, this book is for anyone "looking to create unique and elaborate hairstyles," which is exactly what you will crave after seeing it.' Erika (Grayson) Guay, Theatre Design & Technology
