TIGI Inspirational Youth: Team 2018

Tuesday, 17 July 2018 08:59

TIGI Inspirational Youth is a mentorship programme taking young hairdressers on a life-changing voyage to develop creativity and talent. Now in its 14th year, many former team members have gone on to be very successful in the global hairdressing industry.

TIGI Inspirational Youth founder, Anthony Mascolo, knows the support he received from his brothers played a crucial part in his future success. In turn, he wanted to give opportunity to talented young hairdressers and help them on their personal career journey. 

Last week 17 young finalists attended the TIGI Academy in London for a nerve-wracking selection process to choose the 2018 TIGI Inspirational Youth team.  Each of the finalists was required to cut and colour a head-block under the watchful eyes of the TIGI Creative Team members, before presenting their inspiration and finished work to a panel of judges including Anthony Mascolo. 

The 10 successful hairdressers from salons across the UK now go on to the Inspirational Youth Bootcamp, taking place at Bed Head Studio in London at the beginning of September.  During the Bootcamp week, which includes intense training in classic and advanced cut and colouring and numerous other disciplines, the Team will be mentored by the senior TIGI International Creative Team, led by TIGI European Creative Director, Akos Bodi, TIGI European Session Director, Maria Kovacs and TIGI Global Academy Technical Director, Warren Boodaghians.

The 10 team members chosen for this year’s TIGI Inspirational Youth Team are:

Amy Lynn- Bad Apple

Rebecca McKay- Andrew Collinge

Rebecca Stradling- Molbys

Marc Hensman- Mesart

Dana Hoek- Regis

Claire Thorpe- Scots

Megan Nicholls- Inkfish

Jasmin Dewar- Muse

Adam West- Forresters

Lesley Farrell- F&M

On completion of the TIGI Inspirational Youth Bootcamp, the Team will go on to participate in an exclusive show on 12th November at London’s Café de Paris.
