The Art of a Wig Maker

Richard Theodore started working with wigs and hair pieces over 50 years ago. Throughout his life's work, he's seen how wigs have come in and out of style. Wigs were once an everyday fashion statement, a part of life in the 60s. Today wig fashions are considerably less visible.  Ellie Payne Smith went to speak with Theodore in Hyannis.

You can get more information about Theodore's wigs here.  

Ellie Payne Smith is a recent graduate from the Transom Story Workshop held here in Woods Hole through our production partners: Atlantic Public Media
