FUSE SESSIONS: IN CASE YOU MISSED IT #2 - TIGI FUSE

TALKING HAIR WITH AKOS BODI & PHILIP DOWNING

Kicking off last week’s sessions, Philip joined Akos to discuss all things hair. The pair discuss their hairdressing careers to date, from Akos’s beginnings in his native Hungary, to developing his passion for education and product development at Toni & Guy in Dallas, and his move to London, founding the Bed Head Studio and Academy with Anthony Mascolo. Philip shares the story of how he progressed through TIGI from the Inspirational Youth programme to pursuing his dream of becoming a member of the TIGI Creative Team. And take a look at some of the cringe-worthy photos Akos finds in the archives!

The pair also look at current hair trends and their sources of inspiration through music and fashion. From crops to bobs, and long layers to curls, Akos and Philip share some of their favourite images and the secrets to achieving the looks.

TRENDS INSPIRATION WITH THOMAS OSBORN & PHILIP DOWNING

Thomas and Philip from the US Creative Team take a deepdive into hair trends and inspiration in this session. They discuss the importance of visual references during consultation, and how understanding your client’s style is essential to developing their look.

The pair share their current sources of inspiration, from the Street style of their hometown New York, to the role of music as a constant creative influence. “Trends come and go, but style is everlasting” explains Thomas, as they share their love of Blondie’s Debbie Harry as an enduring hair muse, and the impact of the effortlessly cool fashion brand, Saint Laurent.
