“Blended with coconut oil, Colour Lustre Oil is the perfect after-care product for coloured hair. It really illuminates the colour, smoothing any frizziness and adds tonnes of shine. It can also protect against UV damage, and has added conditioning properties so it’s a great product to recommend to colour clients going on holiday.”
– Warren Boodaghians, TIGI global academy technical creative director

“This is a great product for creating long-lasting curls and waves. Infused with coconut oil and keratin, Firm Hold Curl Cream fortifies and nourishes the hair to give smooth definition, lasting hold and protection from humidity.”
– Joshua Mascolo, TIGI creative director

“The Multi Tasking Styling Cream is a great product to use in the salon and recommend for your client’s own hairstyle regime. It creates thicker-feeling hair due to added keratin and is the perfect base for any hairstyle, whether you’re creating an up-do for a special event or a frizz-free, loose finish. It’s an absolute multi-tasker!”
– Akos Bodi, TIGI European creative director

This has become a go-to product for me! For perfect finishes every time, Volume Lift Styling Spray adds volume and lift straight to the roots to create body, alongside added grip for easy styling and long-lasting, buildable hold.”
– Maria Kovacs, TIGI European session director

Find out how Maria Kovacs used the Volume Lift Styling Spray to create the ‘50s inspired screen sirens look for Mark Fast’s AW19 show at London Fashion Week… 

Step 1
Start by prepping hair with TIGI Copyright Volume Lift Styling Spray, dampen hair down and blow-dry away from the face.

Step 2
Separate a small triangular section around the top of the head/fringe area, from the crown to middle of the eyes. Isolate this hair and clip to use later.

Step 3
Use a styling wand and set the hair using pivoting section from the crown to the hairline. Set the curls with TIGI Copyright Volume Finishing Hairspray and silver clips.

Step 4
Once the hair has cooled down and set, remove all clips and brush away from the face. Create the 50’s moulded shape by back brushing and combing hair and with your hands work into the nape area. Tuck the hair into the nape to create the base and making sure that hair is brushed up in line with the cheekbones. Use TIGI Copyright Volume Finishing Hairspray and try to lock in some waves by adding more silver clips to create the shape.

Step 5
While the moulded shape is setting, work on the top section of the hair. Using the small styling wand and TIGI Copyright Volume Finishing Hairspray, set the hair into 4-6 sections changing the direction of curl every other section. Once set, brush out and start to coil the hair back towards the head shape and mould the shape to create the feature at the front. Secure with grips and TIGI Copyright Volume Finishing Hairspray, leaving a few curls visible and a little bit of texture.

Step 6
From a distance, spray TIGI Copyright Maximum Hold Hairspray to finish the look, smoothing the back section of hair leaving the surface nice and clean.
