ABOUT OUR STUDIOS
HERO HAIR builds a maximum of 50 custom wigs (under our cosplay division) per year, each taking 5 months to create, and has booked-out our available build and delivery schedule for 2020.
We have now moved into pre-production spots for our 2021 deliveries.
Our studio is uniquely fortunate that, with our staff working remotely from their home-ateliers, as well as our studio site-B, for their safety, and while modifications have been made to our shipping protocols, on a state by state, country by country basis, our production has not been seriously affected by the COVID Pandemic.
While not business as usual for anyone during these times, we continue to move forward and wish everyone safety, calm, and prosperity as we collectively look toward the future.
For your virtual-cons, cosplay brand photo shoots, and appearances, 35% down secures your spot on our 2021 waiting list, now open.
Thank you everyone for your continued support.
HERO HAIR MAIN STUDIO
HERO HAIR's main New York studio is run by Founder /Head Wig Designer ERIN KENNEDY LUNSFORD (IATSE Hairstylists & Makeup Artists Local 798/ member of the Academy Of Television Arts And Sciences) and Co-Founder/ Creative Director TRAVIS COWSILL.
Full-time staffed by our professional, core creative team, Monday through Friday, with additional team members rotating in for specialized, task-oriented shifts, this primary, two-story, converted Brooklyn loft has been home to HERO HAIR's television, feature film and cosplay creations since 2015. The main studio features full film and television production capabilities, and amenities, and is conveniently located a short distance from the primary production stages (Steiner & Silvercup) in the area.
OUR SATELLITE STUDIO
HERO HAIR's secondary, satellite-studio site, known as The Hair Studio BK, is operated by HERO HAIR Apprentice/ Wig Construction Specialist-In-Residency Sheri Newman, and HERO HAIR Apprentice/ Color & Cut Specialist-In-Residency Kaitlin Jaime. This site was created during New York's phased COVID re-opening as a safe space for our core staff to work together, while apart, as they practice stringent social distancing, mask use, and hygiene, abiding by all statewide guidelines and protocols within the "new normal."
While supervising the team's work, virtually, from our main studio (via Zoom) most days during production, HERO HAIR Founder ERIN KENNEDY LUNSFORD also has a safe, regular presence at the satellite studio each week, guiding our team through every one of our client's custom builds assigned to them. The Hair Studio BK also serves as Sheri and Kaitlin's burgeoning, full-service , by-appointment-only hair salon for greater Brooklyn. You can follow them on Instagram @thehairstudiobk and, soon on the web at www.thehairstudiobk.com.
We will be spotlighting more of this secondary studio space in the weeks and months to come, and the various projects our amazing team brings to life there for HERO HAIR.
