This page is made as a rescue, better to consult my official web site page for conferences : Laurent Caille Chief Hairdresser - Wig Maker


Description : I’m working as a Chief Hairdresser – Wigmaker in Cinema and show-business in France and internationally since 20 years now.
I did work too last year in Taipei for the Musical Comedy “Notre Dame de Paris”and in Singapore.

I use to give conferences in some Universities for professional public in Paris since 2003.

The subject of this conference is about my Job as Chief Hairdresser – Wigmaker in Cinema, and particularly about the “History of Hair Dresses and Wigs trough the Ages”, an exclusive topic I did especially create.

It’s a presentation about History and Style of Hair Dresses and Wigs, from Egypt society until modern society, a story of the fashions and styles trough the ages, in Western Countries and especially in France, the main base of the fashion in the world since hundreds years…
