Olivia King of the Yazz number one hair studios in Rawdon, Leeds has won a place on a national hairdressing team. The team, entitled, Inspirational Youth, is the brainchild of iconic hairdresser Anthony Mascolo, three-times winner of the title of British Hairdresser of the Year and the man behind the image of the trendy Bed Head hair care brand.

The team are mentored by Anthony Mascolo’s own top team: including his creative hair directors, PRs, show directors, model casting directors, photographers and makeup artists. At each training session the team members are filmed so that their progress can be carefully monitored. The developmental changes that take place are phenomenal. The young hairdressers begin the training period as 12 individuals, but quickly develop into a team that works together and learns together. For many of the team the experience is life-changing. As well as the set training days, they are invited to support the TIGI Team behind the scenes at rock festivals and fashion shows and can benefit from many additional education courses.

Fierce competition results in 12 hairdressers between the age of 18 and 25 being selected to form the Inspirational Youth team and undergo an extensive and intensive training course in London. The young stylists are not only coached in hairdressing techniques, but also in presentation skills, fashion and trend awareness, how to organise a model casting, and how to style hair for a photo shoot. The final day of the 5-month training period is a hair show in front of an audience of over 1000.

Now in its 6th year, Inspirational Youth is viewed very highly by the hairdressing industry. With training valued in the region of £40,000 per team member, it is a great opportunity for Olivia.”
