The purpose of the George Westmore Research Library & Museum is to provide students, educators, scholars, society and industry personnel with a Makeup & Hair resource to explore and examine the role of Makeup & Hair design, as well as their relationship to society and history. The collection is sustained with standard museum practices for continued acquisition and preservation of the Makeup & Hair: Tools, Techniques, Procedures and Products. Its efforts also focus on the development of education, exhibition, outreach and volunteer programs.
