TIGI Inspirational Youth: Bootcamp 2017
Anthony Mascolo started TIGI Inspirational Youth 14 years ago to identify raw talent and give a selected group of young hairdressers the opportunity to progress in their careers.
For 2017, 10 hairdressers were invited to join the TIGI Bootcamp, which took place in August, having been selected from a comprehensive written and video entry. During their 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 the highlight of the week, a model casting and photo shoot. 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 is fantastic," commented Akos Bodi. “They very quickly gelled as a team and their standard of work was very high. It was great too, 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 on the evening of Monday 13th November.
