Watch this instructional video series demonstrating master hairstylist Antje Kastner's renowned techniques for creating glamorous vintage-inspired hairstyles. Detailed and thorough enough for professional hairstylists, but also geared towards those working in theater, burlesque, photography—or anyone interested in the techniques involved in the artistry of vintage glamour. Each video in the 10 part series is a step-by-step demonstration of Antje creating one unique hairstyle from start to finish.
Each video begins with a before shot of the live model and an account of the event to which she will wear the style. Antje gives a brief description of what the hairstyle will be and by what era it is inspired. Antje then takes the viewer step by step through the process, from preparing the hair with different setting techniques, to the finishing touch on the polished look. Antje’s instructional approach is warm and accessible; but there’s no mistaking that the artistry in her tech-nique is anything less than mastery. Watching Antje perform in these videos is enthralling, and one can’t help but feel like they’re being let in on a precious and previously guarded secret.
