Anthony Mascolo, the International Creative Director of TIGI, is to be one of the stars at Estetica Master Parade on October 23rd, 2016 in Milan, Italy.
Always pushing boundaries, thinking out of the box, and bringing new conceptual ideas to life: these are the attributes that have made Anthony Mascolo a key point of reference not only within the TIGI International Creative Team, but also in the world of international coiffure. His motto? To break the rules, you need to learn them first!
Anthony rejects the concept of “impossible” and this philosophy is the heart of his work as a hairdresser, his images, his shows, and for the development of new products under the TIGI brand name. Experimentation is the foundation of his projects, which he develops with his team inside the Mascolo Space, his creative area in the Bed Head Studio in London.
The conquest of numerous awards during his career (he won three times British Hairdresser of the Year) led Anthony Mascolo to set goals that were always higher and to continue stimulating his creativity. The consequences of his success? The desire to share his knowledge, helping many hairdressers to attain their own personal goals.
This year, Anthony Mascolo has launched his online magazine INFRINGE, a platform dedicated to hair, as seen through the lens of fashion, culture, and art.
More than 30 years at the helm of a Creative Team
A son of Italian immigrants, Francesco and Maria Mascolo, Anthony was born in London in 1957. The youngest of 5 brothers, four of whom became hairdressers, he began his career in the Toni&Guy Salon in South London, where he worked with his brother Bruno and his father. In 1974, when Anthony was already a well-known hairstylist and worked with some of the most famous photographers, the Mascolo brothers opened their first salons in London.
A father and a team player
During his career, Anthony has always been part of a team. Thanks to his strong family values, he is committed to conveying his knowledge, encouraging people to grow their own talents. The result? A tightly-knit team whose principle ingredients are loyalty and a shared vision.Working with his brothers, his wife Pat Mascolo (A successful make-up artist) and, for two years, even with Josh, their son, gave TIGI International Creative Team a unique, global acknowledgement all around the world.
Cultivating talent in the hairdressers of the future
As a youngster, he benefited from a great support from his family and, even today, his speeches often speak of the opportunities that he got from his brothers. This familiar background give rise to a desire to communicate to the creations of the future stars. This is why, 12 years ago, he founded the TIGI Inspirational Youth, a training program of international prestige.
