Amazon sells Cosmetology Mannequin heads for around $15.00 to $25.00.

Below is a link to one of the Mannequin Head that I will be using for this class, and other classes that will follow. It is the Mannequin head with dark hair color. This Mannequin head is good for practice with braiding, up-dos, as well as curling the hair and roller sets, etc. These Mannequins are Not intended for chemical use with hair colors, peroxide, bleach, etc. 

I did also purchase the one that had blonde hair, but when I received it the hair was falling out too much. So in this case I do not recommend the blonde Mannequin head that follows with this link. They also had ones with multicolor hair, but I’m not sure of the quality of those presently.

 The Mannequin usually comes with a basic stand that attaches to a counter top. Be sure to confirm this with your purchase. 

 You can also purchase a wig tripod stand separately. A wig tripod will stand on its own with out having to be attached to a counter. It will also adjust in height and is more mobile. 
The link below is one I purchased to use for classes. 

Again the wig stand, this is optional for class. Wig Stand Tripod with Non-Slip...
