The Expats: Wig, beard and moustache maker Richard Muller

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:25 pm on 16 June 2016

Richard Muller went to London to find his fortune in the '80s. He now specialises in hair and makeup for film, particularly making wigs, moustaches and beards.

Jesse Mulligan talks fake facial hair with Muller, who is currently working on the film The Stolen in Christchurch.

"When you're sitting in your workroom knotting single strands of yak hair – which is what we use for beards, or human hair for wigs – into this paper-fine lace one strand at a time, you do wonder how crazy you are" - Richard Muller
