Everyday, in every salon across the world, classic cutting and colouring techniques provide the basis for many of the hairstyles created for clients. Recognisable, easy to wear, and suited to most people’s face shapes, lifestyles and individual image, the ability to perfectly execute these looks is paramount to the hairdresser.
Anthony Mascolo and the TIGI International Creative Team constantly review their work to update their global education and provide hairdressers with new ideas and techniques. Now, considering what today’s hairdressers need to create exciting looks to update their techniques, the TIGI International Creative Team have together developed the Modern Classics collection.
Created by TIGI Creative Directors from across the globe under the direction of Anthony Mascolo, Modern Classics has a truly international feel that illustrates the breadth and reach of TIGI, and shows the synergy and diversity of the team’s work.
