Anthony Mascolo believes in including the latest cut and colour techniques in TIGI educational programmes as soon as they develop, so here we share a cut and colour technique from the TIGI Copyright Care collection…
Cut & Style
The model’s hair was prepped with Copyright Toning Shampoo and treated with Repair Booster. Split End Repair Cream was then applied as the cutting lotion, from the roots to the ends of the hair.
Take a horseshoe section at the highpoint of the recession area. Starting at the centre back, comb and elevate the hair to 90˚ and blunt cut from a shorter to longer perimeter.
Continue with curved vertical sections. Using the same technique continue to remove weight, while leaving the perimeter soft from the back towards the sides. In front of the ear, leave the perimeter slightly disconnected to maintain weight through the outline.
Note the change of hand and body position and repeat the same technique on the other side.
Take a central vertical section from the crown to the front hairline.
Comb and elevate the hair 90˚ to the top of the head and blunt cut from short to long, from the crown towards the fringe.
Work with diagonal back sections through the remaining sections at the top. Comb and elevate the hair 90˚ to the round of the head and cut square to the head shape to maintain length through the top.
Over direct the hairline back to maintain the length through the fringe, before repeating the same technique on the opposite side
Blow-dry the hair smooth using a TIGI PRO Medium Round Brush, then point cut into the ends of the hair to soften and personalise the shape.
To add separation and control frizz, apply a small amount of Creamy Finishing Wax, and then finish the look using Maximum Hold Spray.
Technique: Classic Toning
Natural level: 7/0
Formula 1 (prep): 45g true light white +90g activator 8.5vol/2.55%

Pre-lighten hair to a pale yellow using Formula 1. Create a centre parting from the centre forehead to the top crown and follow with a radial parting from ear to ear.
Put on protective gloves. Starting at the nape area, take horizontal sections and apply Formula 2 from the roots through to ends. Secure with TIGI copyright©olour meche strips.
Continue working through segments in the same way until the back section is complete.
Take a diagonal back parting from the side section at the top of the crown, and apply Formula 2 to the new-growth, lengths and ends. Rest the parting on top of the section behind.
Repeat on the opposite side and alternate the application until both front sections are complete.
Process the colour for up to 20 minutes. Emulsify, rinse and condition with your recommended TIGI Copyright Care™ regime.
