Recently, TIGI announced its ten Inspirational Youth finalists for 2016. Chosen from hundreds of applicants, the ten finalists will attend an intensive, 6-day boot camp at the TIGI New York Academy where they will have the opportunity to develop and advance as hairdressers, individuals, and as a team. The finalists will work closely with the TIGI International Creative Team from April 2 - May 1, 2016 to expand their technical and creative knowledge, enhance their presentation skills, and learn about fashion and photographic work.
TIGI Inspirational Youth is a program close to TIGI International Artistic Director and Founder Anthony Mascolo’s heart. “When I began my career, my brothers gave me the opportunity, support and inspiration to experience photo shoots and shows, which gave me invaluable skills. In turn, I want to provide today’s young hairdressers with the chance to grow their talent. They are the future of our industry.”
