Bob Kelly: Wigmaker to the Stars

Bob Kelly, a makeup artist, wigmaker and founder of the Bob Kelly Wig Creations shop in New York City, died April 18 in Nyack, N.Y. He was 87.


Kelly provided wigs for TV, film and, especially, Broadway.

Like his grandfather, an Irish immigrant, Kelly began his career as a wigmaker, apprenticing with Ira Senz and moving on to makeup work in his 20s. He worked first for the Metropolitan Opera House, then for CBS in the early 1950s, doing makeup for "The Phil Silvers Show," "Your Show of Shows" and "Captain Kangaroo," among others. In 1964, Kelly did hair and makeup for the Beatles' first U.S. performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." He also did work for films including "The Exorcist."

He opened Bob Kelly Wig Creations in 1950 in midtown Manhattan; the shop closed in 2008, when he retired. In 1970, Kelly created the theatrical supply business Bob Kelly Cosmetics, a separate company that disbanded in 2003. Kelly supplied makeup and hair goods to Broadway productions including "South Pacific," "West Side Story," "Fiddler on the Roof" and "Beauty and the Beast." "Shrek the Musical" was the final show to which he contributed. He also provided wigs for "Saturday Night Live" for 30 years.

Bone Head

“Messy hair is a thing of the past! We’ve combed through the Cretaceous to come up with the perfect tool to keep you well groomed. What looks like a skull of a prehistoric beast, opens up into our BoneHead two sided comb and brush.”

“Keep it clean and styled people! After all, messy hair is just so Neanderthal and bed-head is almost as dated as the dinosaur that inspired this comb!!”

“Our Bonehead Dinosaur Folding Brush & Comb easily fits into a purse or pocket for your convenience.”
