This unit is designed to provide the learners with an opportunity to enhance the skills required to produce a range of contemporary / traditional historical hair designs.
Through an exploration of different historical designs and postiche resources the learner will identify and construct a range of hairstyles that will reflect a past traditional period. Through the vocational and theoretical skills achieved in this unit the learners will then be able to develop a contemporary hair design influenced by historical trends.
1. produce a portfolio of design ideas: utilise the multi media available, film, internet, literature and live projects to understand how specific genres are interpreted through out the industry
2. apply a range of styling techniques for a selection of media period characterisations: these may include Egyptian, roman, Elizabethan, pompadour, Victorian, Elizabethan or 20th century
3. design and application of postiche resources: hard front wigs, lace front wigs, moustache, sideburns
4. examine and critical evaluate the relationship between different historical traditions and contemporary trends in hair styling: demonstrating an understanding of the social and political impact on costume, make-up and hair styles
5. create a contemporary design: research into contemporary hairstyles and analyse the area that has been interpreted. To create your own design utilising original and individual ideas to inspire interpreted trend
Practical expertise will be developed through the activities experience in workshops, studio and external environments. The learner will be exposed to a series of hair styling techniques through tutor led classes and demonstrations, project based briefs and individual development support aimed to educate the student on the range of hairstyling requirements available to the stylist within industry.
The unit is designed to allow the learner to experience creating themed hairstyles for a range of period/ historical scenarios i.e. Egyptian, Victorian, 1920ís or 1960ís. Tutor led introductions to each theme will follow with assessment of the practical experimentation by the learner, essays, individual research, design and interpretation, assessment and design and self evaluation.
Learners will be required to communicate their knowledge and understanding of the subject through rationalising appropriateness of media and methods used and reflection. Processes will be documented through the fabrication of a learning journal and wherever possible this learning experience will be related to the work environment and integrated into units across programme.
