About

Join Chicago Movie Tours for a quick history of movie makeup and a peek into the life of Chicago’s expert toupee-maker during Hollywood's silent era.

While you look (virtually) at the State St. building that once held his thriving business, you'll learn how this Chicago-based wigmaker responded to trends in the movies and on the streets. On this virtual tour, you'll also see several historic advertisements and photos from 1920s fan magazines and newspapers showcasing Hollywood’s standards of male and female beauty.
