Micro-rooting is the process of adding hair to a doll one strand at a time to create the appearance of hair growing out of the doll's scalp. A perfectly micro-rooted hairdo can take tens to over one hundred hours to create, putting the artist at risk of repetitive strain injury.
This course will apply the principles of ergonomics to the process of micro-rooting. By carefully adjusting your work space, posture and hands, you will reduce your risk of repetitive strain injury and protect your joints while rooting even faster!
