Tamara Walsh

Bespoke wigs & millinery for fashion, retail display, music and performing arts.

Biography

I've made bespoke hair pieces for Carla Bruni, period wigs for Fanny Ardent for stage, performance wigs for Beth Ditto and headpieces for Lana Del Rey.

Classically trained, Tam graduated in 2000 from the London College of Fashion with a degree in Wigs and Make-Up for the Performing Arts. Tam went on to work freelance on many theatre, film, tv and music productions as well as wig and special effects workshops in both London and Paris.

Her move to Paris to work for an Atelier helped spread her wings and inspired her to start working with different materials and experimenting with hair in different ways. With her maverick spirit and strong creative flair she set up her studio on her return to London to start creating bespoke pieces with her own personal stamp.

Tam designs and creates both human and synthetic wigs and pieces. She works on lace, weft and buckram bases and past work has ranged from providing individual tailor made wigs to large commissions with a defined brief. Also trained in millinery, Tam has been commissioned to make hand blocked hats, masks and headpieces using felt, straw, leather, acrylic and mixed media.
