Anthony wanted to recognise the talent of tomorrow and so set up this amazing course. Now a standard diary entry for many young hopefuls around the UK & Europe. From over 500 entrants each year, it is a massive achievement that Charlotte has got through to the final 12. These 12 are taken on a 6 month intensive journey through camera and stage work to session hair and advanced cutting skills.

This year, Charlotte worked on organising a professional shoot and casting professional models from the top London agencies. The TIGI Inspirational Youth have teamed up with a group of young fashion graduates from the London College of Fashion. For the last six months Charlotte has been working with her own fashion designer to create a unique fashion look, with hair the starting point and the inspiration. The collaboration has turned the usual way of working with fashion designers ‘on its head’ showing the power of hair in leading and making trends.

Guided by the TIGI Global Creative Director, Nick Irwin and other senior members of the TIGI Creative Team including Akos Bodi – TIGI’s European Creative Director and Maria Kovacs TIGI’s European Session Director, the inspirational youth training process covers a broad aspect of creative instruction taking the craft of hairdressing into the realms of art.

The 2012 show promises to be very special. This weekend Charlotte will be presenting on stage to an audience of over 1000 guests at Salon International at Londons Excel – The most inspiring hairdressing event in the diary.

Charlotte, who joined Yazz Number One Hair Studio 2 years ago says that TIGI Inspirational Youth has been an amazing opportunity that has changed her life for the better. Allowing her to experience a side to hair dressing that not many are lucky enough to be involved in and work with some of the greatest names in the industry. Charlotte is now full of confidence and ambition, having developed her creative skills to a high level and ready to bring her new skills to her clients in the Guiseley salon.
