Individual ATI's will be created for both books at RTM* Based on reviewer feedback of our 2010 publication Wig Making and Styling, which teaches readers how to construct a wig, Historical Wig Styling Volumes 1 & 2 focus on how to style wigs in a historically accurate way. Each styling chapter will contain approximate dates of the period, images of historical hairstyles from the period, a list of important artists or style icons from the period, and notes about relevant historical events. How to create each hairstyle is explained in minute detail, beginning with a discussion on the best cut or style of wig to start with for the style and followed by step-by-step instructions for the hairstyle. Each step is illustrated by photographs, including finished front side and back shots of the hairstyle and pictures of variations on this style. The books also cover necessary supplies and styling products needed, notes about proper wig handling, an brief overview of basic styling techniques, guidelines for good wig styling, and a discussion about the differences in styling a person's own hair instead of a wig. Also based on reviewer feedback, we have split the book into two volumes in order to include the most detailed explanation of how to create the styles while including numerous photographs to visually depict each step.

Fashion is a very popular subject among young people. Any course with fashion as a prefix attracts lots of students. Despite this, many prospective students and people have little idea what jobs in the fashion industry entail. Beskrivelse: Fashion Styling is one of the least well researched areas in fashion colleges. The emphasis is put on the end result, i.e. visual imagery, rather than the process of creating it. This 'how to' book provides an insight into the processes you have to follow to work in this area, be it editorial, commercial or show styling. It includes an eight-week introductory programme to the subject and projects whereby students can simulate professional practice and learn the techniques and skills necessary for a career in styling. At the end of the book there is a source directory, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography which provide reference points for further research and study
