Each wig takes around a week to make and each facial hair piece, such as a sideburn, takes about a day.
During the actors first visits to Stratford-upon-Avon, they spend time with the Wigs and Make-up team to make the guides for their facial hair. This involves creating a template out of cling-film and Sellotape to make the lace bases.
The top moustache will be worn by Tom Byrne as Valentine. The one below has been finished and will be worn by Jamie Tyler, policeman.
