The TIGI Inspirational Youth head to Bootcamp
The TIGI Inspirational Youth has gained global respect throughout the hairdressing world throughout the years. 14 years ago Anthony Mascolo started TIGI Inspirational Youth to identify raw talent and give a selected group of young hairdressers the opportunity to progress in their careers.
This year 10 hairdressers were invited to join the TIGI Bootcamp after being selected from a comprehensive written and video entry process. During the week the team members were mentored by the senior TIGI International Creative Team, led by TIGI European Creative Director, Akos Bodi, TIGI European Session Director, Maria Kovacs, and TIGI European Technical Creative Director, Warren Boodaghians.
The Bootcamp included classic and advanced cut and colouring, session styling training, future fashion forecasting, presentation skills and a model casting and photoshoot. Shot at Bed Head Studio by TIGI in-house photographer, Alex Barron-Hough, the models were styled by TIGI fashion stylist, JIV D.
“This year’s Team was fantastic,” enthused Akos Bodi. “They very quickly gelled as a team and their standard of work was very high. It was also great, having John Harte and Joshua Mascolo, both former members of TIGI Inspirational Youth, teaching the team.”
Following the TIGI Inspirational Youth Bootcamp, the Team will participate in an exclusive show in November at London’s Café de Paris.
