Special Effects Makeup – Old Age, Bald, Hair, Breakdown
Almost every movie or television show has an elderly person, a bald person, or someone who has let themselves go. There are techniques that are used to give someone who has hair the bald look, or vice versa, someone with no hair a mop of hair. A Special Effects Makeup artist job is to take any canvas and make them into whatever the director needs them to be.
In this class I will be instructing you on how to produce the following effects:
- Creating a Bald Person using a Bald Cap
- Laying on Hair
- Old Ape Stipple (Subtle Aging)
- Laying of Hair
- Aging Makeup

These techniques are unique and may not be required every day, but they are important to have in your arsenal of talents. it is important to make them real and make them fast. Your production may have a lot of people that need makeup before shooting can begin. I will show you shortcuts to create these great effects.
