Even though trained in wig making and I dont want to count the number I have made over the years there has
always been a little trick I use for wigs, makeup and effects work. Getting the foundation (structure) just right can save you time , money and get the perfect fit ever time.
If you can get a life cast of the actors head then the rest is easy. The traditional ways of old to take a template with clingwrap and tape is great and I still use it, but doing an actual life cast is the best.
You can use indalible ink to mark out the hair line before the life cast and hey presto , its all then up to you spending the next days making your masterpiece.  Good luck . Kym
Dont forget my recommended wig books list on my blog.
