Wig Out

Screaming Queens wig designer Perfidia made a name for herself in New York's club scene for her animated lip sync performance to underappreciated divas such as La Lupe, Yma Sumac, and Caterina Valente. In the 90's she created Perfidias Wig World located in both of Patricia Field's downtown boutiques, House Of Field and Hotel Venus.

If there's an edgy or avant garde project brewing, New York insiders know to call on Perfidia. She was brought on board for Boy George's Broadway show Taboo and she's currently working with Alan Cumming and Cyndi Lauper in the new controversial production of Threepenny Opera. Perfidia was key hair designer on the twisted TV show and upcoming film Strangers with Candy. Yes, she is the one responsible for Jerri Blank's bizarre coif... and many of mine!
