TIGI’s decision to launch its very first Copyright salon in Chicago stemmed from the brand’s existing relationship with Fuga Centro Salon owner and Artistic Director, Antonio Favaro and its ongoing emphasis on professional haircare education. The Chicago location is the brand’s Midwest education hub.


TIGI and Fuga celebrated with an exclusive party at the salon, where TIGI Founder Anthony Mascolo and members of the TIGI education team met the Fuga Centro crew and got to see the space.
