Education

  • Are you interested in expanding your business by adding the ability and knowledge of professional wig skills?
  • Are you interested in learning how to make beautiful realistic looking lace front wigs and pieces?
  • Are you interested in learning how to style and manipulate synthetic hair with ease?

I'm here to help!! For over a decade I've worked professionally as a wig-designer for theatrical productions Off-Broadway and around the country. I have designed and built wigs for private clients and celebrities, worked in the hair departments of two dozen Broadway shows, and many TV shows/Movies; which has given me a very diverse set of skills that I'd love to share with you!

Over the years I have had the pleasure of teaching privately both in person in NYC or online. I have also taught group education classes through I.A.T.S.E. #798 - Hair & Make-Up Artists, Muhlenberg College, Pace University, Queens College, BMCC, and moderated several wig panels at RuPaul's Dragcon LA.

I am excited to announce that I am currently offering customized One on One Zoom Courses and Question & Answer Sessions!

We will cater your entire course experience to your individual skills and needs!

I am currently working on a group online learning system, more information to come soon!!!


"I'd love to take a class, how can I schedule one?"

"I don't see the course that I'm interested in, can I create my own?"

"How experienced do I have to be?"

  • We accept students of all experience levels; we will create your one on one zoom course exactly to your specifications and skill level!

"How long are the classes?"

  • Our one on one full tutorial courses are a minimum of two hours, but often can be up to five hour or more depending upon the student's experience and the complexity of the project(s) chosen.
  • For very tedious and time intensive projects (knotting/ventilating hair, foundation making or cage-building) the course can be split over multiple days or weeks.
  • We also offer half-hour or full hour question & answer sessions; without a full tutorial.

"How do I pay for the course?"

  • Once your one on one course has been created with a date and a time set, we will email you two 50% deposit invoice for credit card or PayPal payment. Invoices will not be sent until a date and time for the course has been agreed upon.
  • Payment of one of the the 50% invoices is required to book your course.
  • Payment for the remainder is due by the midnight EST the evening before the course is scheduled to begin. (IE if your course is scheduled for Saturday, your remainder payment is due by midnight EST Friday evening).
  • If the second 50% payment has not been received by midnight the evening before the course is schedule to begin, your course will be cancelled with no refund.
  • If the course is being purchased as a gift for another party, we require 100% payment up front.

"Are kits or supplies included? How will I know what I will need?"

  • Kits or supplies are not included in the course price for one on one courses; experienced students will most likely already have everything needed in their kits but many items are available through us if they don't.
  • We have a basic rundown of kit & supply lists available here; we will let you know of any additional items that will be needed for your specific one on one course.
  • After scheduling your full one on one tutorial course you will be given a unique 20% off coupon code for you to use indefinitely to purchase supplies through us; coupon code is not available for question and answer session students.

"What is the cancellation/rain check policy for courses?"

  • As our courses are one on one, scheduling is very important. Often times other courses or outside work are turned down to keep course dates and times as set for our students; if they are moved or cancelled it means we missed out on other opportunities while we held your spot.
  • Cancellations two weeks or more before scheduled course start date: 100% refund.
  • Cancellations within one to two weeks before scheduled course start date: 50% refund.
  • Cancellations less than one week before scheduled course start date: No refund.
  • If BobbiePinz makes a scheduling error or is unable to teach the course at the agreed upon time, you will receive a full refund.
  • Rescheduling two weeks or more before scheduled course start date: 10% additional charge.
  • Rescheduling within one to two weeks before scheduled course start date: 25% additional charge.
  • Rescheduling less than one week before scheduled course start date: 50% additional charge.
  • If BobbiePinz makes a scheduling error or is unable to teach the course at the agreed upon, no additional charge is necessary.
