The Head and Facial Postiche

The Head and Facial Postiche

WHAT IS A POSTICHE?

A postiche is described as any item of false hair worn on the head or face, such as a false beard, moustache, wig, and sideburns.

A postiche is often used in stage and screen, but often must be adapted to suit each actor.

Today skillful wig makers are creating the postiche for daily wear!

Creating a postiche involves many of the same techniques used to make a full wig. You will need to have the necessary supplies, measure the area or make a template, block the lace, ventilate, customize, and apply.


BEST LACE FOR A GREAT POSTICHE

For the most natural look, use your best HD or transparent lace such as Film, Ultra HD or Opera.

As seen in the video, applying a postiche can dramatically change and enhance a person’s appearance.  It is definitely a game-changer for individuals that are experiencing thinning hair, baldness or thin brows or moustaches.

HAVE FUN AND BE CREATIVE!
