actress hairpiece

This is the same actress from the picture above putting her hair pieces on. Each individual drape of hair was soaked in tree sap overnight to make it sticky. Then they would layer the hair on and tie it very tightly with rope-like material. After they add all of the hair pieces, they add large hairpins and berets. Our translator told us that after they have all of their costuming, hair, and makeup done they develop a throbbing headache, but “just have to endure the pain.” We were later told they had to feel like this for at least 4 hours every night.
