WASHINGTON, D.C. – May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Have you ever wondered about the origin of wigs, how they are designed, or how to care for them properly? CEO of Katour Line Designer Wig Collection, Kym Williams, is here to lay those questions, and more, to rest in the form of her newly-released book: “The Art of Wig Design: A Katour Line Presentation” (ISBN: 1-59971-637-2).
After losing her hair to chemicals, Williams began designing wigs for herself due to the lack of natural looking wigs available. Her personal collection received an overwhelmingly positive response and led to numerous requests for duplicate styles.
“I was inspired to transform my crafting skills,” Williams said, “into the development of a unique wig design company.”
As CEO, Williams received countless emails and letters from cosmetology students, hairstylists and customers inquiring about how to design and maintain wigs. These queries spurred a response that took the form of her newly-released book: “The Art of Wig Design: A Katour Line Presentation” (ISBN: 1-59971-637-2).
Not only is Williams’ book filled with facts about wigs and wig design, it also offers comfort and camaraderie to victims of hair loss. She gives first-hand advice about dealing with the disorder and offers simplified tips for the consumer for creating a confident and fabulous look.
“If it’s color, cut, style and versatility that you are looking for,” Angela Bassett, actress, said, “then look no further than Katour Line Wigs.”
In 1987, Williams graduated with honors from the Washington D.C. Beauty Academy. She went to work as an apprentice for world-renowned, celebrity hairstylist, Barry Fletcher. Fletcher quickly took note of Williams’ talent and advanced her to a hairstylist position. In that role, she furthered her career by taking advanced courses in hair replacement techniques and precision cutting methods through Vidal Sassoon and the Toy & Guy Advanced Academy.
“Kym Williams is a creative genius,” Barry Fletcher, said.
Using the principles taught in the book, Williams shares her secrets of the wig design trade in seminars and speaking engagements. She is also the founder of the Dorothy M. Williams Foundation for Cancer and Hair Loss Recovery.
