Here’s What Happened After 10 Stylists Completed TIGI’s Inspirational Youth Boot Camp

TIGI’s Inspirational Youth program kicks off with a week-long boot camp, conducted by the very top of the top TIGI® educators. Ten young stylists, all under the age of 25, spend a week with the likes of TIGI® International Artistic Director Anthony Mascolo and Global Creative Technical Director Christel Lundqvist, learning the ABCs of education presentation, session styling, cutting and coloring, model selection and photo shoots. When the week is up, these kids have been schooled—they’ve absorbed years’ worth of knowledge in just seven days! So where do you go from there? This year, the 10 young artists marched straight onto the BTC COLOR, Cut & Style stage!

TIGI’s Inspirational Youth program kicks off with a week-long boot camp, conducted by the very top of the top TIGI® educators. Ten young stylists, all under the age of 25, spend a week with the likes of TIGI® International Artistic Director Anthony Mascolo and Global Creative Technical Director Christel Lundqvist, learning the ABCs of education presentation, session styling, cutting and coloring, model selection and photo shoots. When the week is up, these kids have been schooled—they’ve absorbed years’ worth of knowledge in just seven days! So where do you go from there? This year, the 10 young artists marched straight onto the BTC COLOR, Cut & Style stage! (Pssst! Early bird hotel deals are AVAILABLE NOW for COLOR, Cut & Style 2017 in AUSTIN, TEXAS!)


The Bed Head by TIGI® Colour Trip collection.

In an unprecedented opportunity, the young stylists, from locations across the country, were invited to present models as part of the TIGI® segment on the BTC stage. They followed an electrifying presentation showcasing the new Colour Trip semi-permanent shades by TIGI’s Anthony Mascolo, Akos Bodi, Thomas Osborn and Richy Kandasamy, who then cheered on their young protégés.


The Inspirational Youth finished looks.

Each artist shared their inspiration for the look they created, and the ideas ranged from ‘90s grunge to a sunset to the ocean. Each discussed the cut, color and style techniques used for their models, including the importance of matching haircolor to skin tone, eye color and the client’s lifestyle. 


The Inspirational Youth program discovers and nurtures new talent.

 “This is the first time we’ve brought Inspirational Youth to America,” Anthony told the audience. “These 10—I think they’re the best hairdressers I know. We’re extremely proud of them.”
