AHS: Hotel with Lady Gaga // FX

About This Project

I had the pleasure of leading fabrication on a 30 foot long wig made especially for Lady Gaga for FX’s American Horror Story: Hotel promotional campaign.

The under structure for the wig was designed by me, and fabricated by myself and my team.  Nearly 300 wigs were individually sewn on by us and Nicki Alkire’s dedicated hair team. The wig is 30 feet long and 10 feet wide at the base. It was designed to be modular; it separates in sections so length can be adjusted on the fly. The under structure of the wig, the ‘cape’, was secured to a back harness.

Our wig won Best Hairstyling in a Commercial at the 2016 Hair and Makeup Guild Awards!
