Artist Stories: Anthony Mascolo, TIGI

For over 30 years, Anthony Mascolo has been the creative genius behind TIGI—not to mention an icon to generations of hairdressers.

As Founder and International Artistic Director of TIGI, Mascolo’s passion for the art and fashion behind great hairdressing is second only to his commitment to education designed to elevate the craft. His philosophy is to constantly share knowledge and inspire others, and he is renowned for nurturing and helping those who work with him—both behind-the-scenes and on stages with him around the world.

American Salon is proud to have had the opportunity to interview Mascolo for our latest Artist Stories video during the recent TIGI World Event. This is just the first of a series of videos that will give viewers some unique insights into the world of TIGI and Toni & Guy.
