Molly Oliver McGrath is the shop manager and an instructor for Wig Workshop-PDX. Molly’s career started over 20 years ago in Chicago where she received her introduction to the world of wigs at the Theatre School at DePaul University. After receiving her degree in Costume Design, she went on to maintain and style the wigs of some of the best wigmakers in North America. Her deep respect for the craft that goes into every custom made wig has motivated her to handle every wig with the highest standard in the entertainment industry. For nine years, Molly was the Hair Supervisor for the Broadway National Touring Company of WICKED, the musical (Munchkinland).
After leaving the tour, Molly wanted to be able to offer her expertise and styling skills to private individuals who are dealing with hair loss. She created and opened The Wig Station as a place to offer these services. In addition, Molly continues to work in town part-time as a licensed Hair Stylist and Makeup Artist in the TV and Film Industry. She is a proud member of IATSE locals – 488 (PNW), 798 (NY) and 476 (Chicago).
