TIGI for Haus Alkire

Friday, 24 February 2012 12:42

Fashion Week truly puts hair artists to the test, and TIGI boasts artists who pass the test with flying colors.

Ecco Domani 2012 Fashion Foundation Award winners Jason and Julie Haus presented a  truly modern and artistic F/W 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week, marked by their signature craft-work and hand-painted prints boasting abstract symmetrical patterns drawing inspiration from myriad natural textures. And TIGI Global Creative Director Nick Irwin followed suit, creating an intricate mixture of slick, sleek, teased, organic and basket woven tresses to complement the mood of the garments. Eclectic, innovative, cutting edge, TIGI.


1. While maintaining a strong center part, separate hair at the crown of the head into a small bun. Then section the remaining hair into three sections: two in the front and one in the back (the hair under the crown).

2. Next, spray Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Work It Hair Spray through each of the three sections, brushing the hair flat to the head. Secure sections with an elastic tie at mid-shaft.

3. Mix together the Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Wet Look Gel and Catwalk by TIGI Session Series True Wax and use a color brush to “paint” the mixture onto each section above the hair tie. This will create a “vinyl” look.

4. Gently back brush the hair below the elastic tie to add texture and set with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Finishing Spray.

5. Next, take down bun and spray with the Work It Hair Spray. Separate the hair into five pieces and using an “up, under, over” technique, basket weave just at the crown and allow remaining hair to fall onto the already back brushed hair at the nape of the neck to create desired contrast.

6. Secure the end pieces with a pin just behind the ear and set the entire look with Catwalk by TIGI Session Series Finishing Spray.

7. Once hair has set, remove all elastic ties and pins and spray with the Finishing Spray once more.
