TIGI Creative Director of Social Media Content, Joel Torres, uses clippers to create a modern take on the iconic TIGI look. Taking inspiration from K-Pop, the colour palette enhances and adds softness to the cut.

STEP BY STEP TECHNIQUE

  1. Prep the hair with TIGI Copyright Care Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner.
  2. To start the cut, take a horseshoe section to isolate the top area.
  3. Working with clippers, cut the underneath area to create a soft graduation.
  4. Release the top and cut at 90° following the headshape, over directing the front to maintain length.
  5. Personalise the cut on dry hair to accentuate texture and movement.
  6. Finish with TIGI Copyright Revitalising Dry Shampoo for texture, and Volume Finishing Spray for hold.
