To start last week’s live Fuse Sessions, Anthony Mascolo was joined by TIGI Photographer, Alex Barron-Hough to discuss hair photography. After knowing each other for almost 30 years, the pair share the story of how Alex first began working with his mentor; from sweeping the floors to producing and shooting TIGI’s global collections and campaigns.
Anthony recounts how he first got into photographing his hairdressing work, and he and Alex share just a few of their favourite images from the archives, including the humbling moment when they photographed hairdressing icon, Vidal Sassoon.

To end the week of live sessions, Thomas Osborn, TIGI Americas Creative Director & VP of Education, speaks to two longstanding US salon partners about life during lockdown and how to use this time as an opportunity for development.
Wade Gordon Hagler, of Wade Gordon Hairdressing Academy, shares how he built his salon and education business, his passion for the hairdressing industry, and how he had to close his new salon space after just three days of opening, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Despite the situation, he shares his positive thinking: “This is a setback, but it’s setting up our comeback.”
Tracey Bocci celebrates 25 years of Bocci salons, and shares how she managed to get over her “hand panic” of not being able to practice hairdressing every day. Tracey explains the positive services her salon has offered to frontline workers, how she is leading her team during closure, and what she is doing to prepare her salon for the future.
