Warhorse – Steven Speilberg
About a year ago, a make-up artist I had previously collaborated with called me out of the blue and asked if I’d ever put hair extension on horses. I wasn’t sure I’d heard right… of course I hadn’t! She then asked if she could ask me a crazy question. I actually looked at the phone, if that wasn’t a crazy question…what was? Turns out the project was to add hair extensions to nine horses for a movie called War Horse.
The problem was that all the horses consistently needed to have long, flowing, magnificent manes, however, nothing they had attached so far was staying in place for the duration of filming. Days later I was stood on a bucket next to a bored horse tying in extensions. Four days later, nine horses had beautiful manes worthy of a Steven Spielberg adventure. It was certainly something different, and yes, I was very happy to return to humans!
