Inspiring Young Hairdresser, Rosie, Joins Exciting Youth Team.

YAZZ-RosieBed Head Studio in London

Rosie from Yazz Number One Hair Studio salon has won one of 20 coveted places in the TIGI Inspirational Youth Team, beating young stylists from across the UK and Germany.
For the next 6 months a team of top professionals will work to refine the Team’s hairdressing skills, and also work on their presentation skills and fashion knowledge. Ultimately the Inspirational Youth Team is trained to take part in the Inspirational Youth Show at “Salon Live”, a 3-day hairdressing exhibition at Excel in the London Docklands – in front of an audience of over 1000 hairdressers.

The 6-month training period includes a 2-day photographic shoot, for which each Team Member will create their own interpretation of the new season’s looks, working together with a team of top makeup artists and fashion stylists and shooting at Bed Head Studio in London.

Inspirational Youth is the brainchild of iconic hairdresser, Anthony Mascolo, who wanted to share his knowledge and experiences with the hairdressing stars of tomorrow, giving them the opportunity to not only learn more about hairdressing, but also the very important experience of team membership. This is the 7th year that TIGI have sponsored the Inspirational Youth Team.

TIGI not only fund all the training but also provide the team members with a full kit-bag of TIGI equipment including a hairdryer, complete brush set, straightening irons, training books and DVDs. After the first training session each team member returned to their own salons, loaded down with their ‘goodies’ and already growing in confidence.

……..And confidence is one of the main goals that the mentors focus on. Team leader, Nick Irwin, TIGI European Creative Director said: “For all the mentors, Inspirational Youth is an emotional experience. On the first day, the individual young hairdressers arrive, looking nervous. After each training session, you see them grow, both as a person and as a team. The final day, when I see them on stage I am always thrilled to see how they have developed. It is a really interesting and satisfying journey.”
Inspirational Youth is certainly a ‘journey’ for each of the 20 young hairdressers and not always an easy one, but it’s exciting, interesting, enjoyable and a fantastic opportunity, which they all say is ‘life changing’.
