Viking Hair Piece

Date

2019

Materials

Two hair pieces made from a mixture of Asian dark brown, blonde and white yak hair, in order to colour match the pieced to the models own hair.

Techniques

I knotted the hair into wefts to be sewn onto faux leather ribbon. This was then added onto the model's own hair to be styled. The female Viking hair was styled to replicate that of a married Viking woman.

Description
