The Go-To Accessory for Men This Award’s Season

The hottest men in Hollywood have showed us that scruff is the latest look for 2017. From Ryan Reynolds to Chris Pine, the Bed Head for Men by TIGI NEW Grooming Collection is here to help achieve these #beardgoals.

Introducing the Grooming Collection from Bed Head for Men, created by hairdressers and barbers that features a variety of grooming products needed for giving good face:

Balm Down Cooling Aftershave– Even former sexiest man alive, Chris Hemsworth can’t resist a proper grooming routine. Soothe irritation and reduce dryness while hydrating and moisturizing the skin with a fresh green aromatic scent.

Lion Tamer Beard & Hair Balm– If your beard is starting to resemble Casey Affleck’s, then this is the product for you. The first of it’s kind; this balm is specially designed to tame both the hair and beard with light control and conditioning that lasts.

Fuel Around Nourishing Beard Oil ($)- Jake Gyllenhaal’s beard is as polished as the award show trophies this season! Reduce beard burn with this oil that conditions and shines while nourishing the skin.

Mo Rider Moustache Crafter– If there was an award for best moustache, Dev Patel would’ve been the clear winner. Sculpt any moustache to perfection with this strong hold formula that features a subtle fragrance.

“Guys are starting to take more pride in their appearance and are seeing the value in looking and feeling their best. There is this old-fashioned notion that it’s “manlier” to not care about the way you look, but now, more than ever, men are breaking those barriers and realizing that when you look good on the outside, your inner self feels good. At Bed Head, we believe in embracing creativity, so we’re taking a new approach to traditional grooming.” – Anthony Mascolo, TIGI International Creative Director

“This look was inspired by the idea of a natural, windswept feel. We wanted to keep the front of the hair soft with some “frozen”” pieces and have a Nordic knot down the back. The look is strong, yet not fussy.” said Thomas Osborn.

Get the Hair: Jessica Chastain at the Met Gala

Celebrity Hair Stylist Ryan Trygstad for S Factor by TIGI created a seriously glamorous, Rita Hayworth-inspired look for Jessica Chastain as she graced the Met Gala Red Carpet in Givenchy.
“We were inspired by Rita Hayworth and the serious glamour of her era. I researched exactly how Rita set her hair back in the 40s and drew inspiration from there. The look is a cross between a sideswept updo and a faux bob that perfectly displays Jessica’s gorgeous ruby earrings.” – Ryan Trygstad
How to:
  1. Prep hair with S Factor by TIGI Stunning Volume Shampoo & Conditioner
  2. Next, spray a liberal amount of S Factor by TIGI Body Booster Plumping Spray on damp hair, focusing on the roots. Emulsify the S Factor by TIGI Silky Smooth Moisture Serum and True Lasting Colour Hair Oil and smooth onto ends for a high sheen look.
  3. Blow dry hair with a round brush, lifting hair at the roots and smoothing through the ends.
  4. Wrap small sections of hair around a 1.5″ barrel curling iron, curling hair inward toward the face, pin back one side of hair behind the same ear
  5. Finish with S Factor by TIGI Vivacious Hairspray and brush out curls using a boar bristle brush

NYFW: Mara Hoffman Backstage Beauty

There were only 2 hours to runway time and models are seated in place for their full beauty transformations. In order to bring Mara Hoffman’s Fall/Winter 2015 inspiration to life, each individual had to rotate around the room, moving from CATWALK by TIGI hair care section to the wall of Maybelline’s make-up artists and finally to ZOYA where each model gets freshly manicured nails before being fitted for showtime.

Hair back Mara Hoffman Hair side Mara Hoffman
This year, Hoffman’s collection was inspired by Luke Skywalker. Thomas Osborne, creative director of Hair by Catwalk by TIGI

explains his take on the look. “We created dual textures – there’s a tightness on the top and then a 70’s looseness towards the bottom of the braids. We let the braids take on its own life. Especially in this time of year, when you’re out in the cold and wearing a hat, your hair comes out in this fresh looseness and we wanted to embrace that.”

IMG_20150214_132229_1Osborne assures me that having very long hair was unnecessary. If your hair isn’t this long, it becomes more important to use great hair product.” The two products used to create this look includes CATWALK by TIGI’s

1) The Bodifying Spray, which prepped the hair for the hair for the braid. and

2) The Session Series Work It Hairspray to set the look.IMG_20150214_131843

This year’s nail design was free-flowing, using vegan-friendly nail polish brand, ZOYA. “You paint from light to dark and there are no straight lines to paint. You can use the brushes already in the bottle and you can go on an angle down the nails.”

In this look, there are a total of 5 colors. The only satin color is the pink color, called Brittney. All of the other colors come from the ZOYA collection and you can switch out colors as you desire. Inspired by the sand and sunrise of Luke Skywalker’s planet, Lottie, the Creative Director of Maybelline applies a golden bronze to the eye. She finishes with a little bit of darkness to give it a soft, modern edge of today’s woman. The skin is left very dewy, natural and fresh.

Backstage Beauty with @Marahoffman #MBFW and Catwalk by TIGI

Finally made my way to Lincoln Center on Saturday to catch the Mara Hoffman show!  As some of you know, I am working with a NY designer for Fashion Week doing their social media so I have been preoccupied. BUT this was sensational!  Nick from TIGI talked about Mara’s inspiration: 70’s, California and the desert dryness that inspired the beauty look SS15.

My good friend JAN from the AMPTEAM came by to hang out with me! Yay!

Mara Hoffman’s name is synonymous with her electric prints, but for Spring she set out to prove her evolution and range as a designer. “I do fabrications. I do silhouettes. I do a whole lot more than just blasting you with neon prints,” she said backstage before her runway show. “I wanted to shift the equation and create something that reflected more of my own personal aesthetic. I want my girl to grow and hope she comes along with me on the trip.” Scaling back those in-your-face graphics made for a tranquil, easier collection that ultimately captured Hoffman’s mantra: “Be light.”

The first look out—a white linen button-down paired with matching wide-leg culottes—exemplified this season’s new, softer direction. Continuing to work with natural fabrics and a muted color palette, Hoffman whipped up relaxed pieces including a floor-sweeping terra-cotta-hued bandeau dress, and a woven shirt-and-trousers set with faded rainbow stripes. More often than not, patterns were incorporated in the form of beading (a dégradé checkerboard slip, in particular, earned high marks) or embroidery (Hoffman’s favorite group featured “electrolyte” needlework). And while the designer largely moved away from her signature prints here, she couldn’t help but sprinkle a “harvest” motif resembling cannabis leaves throughout the lineup. Hoffman took her finale bow in a cute cutout jumpsuit splashed with the mood-lifting pattern, which is sure to become a hit among her loyal, free-spirited customers. Talk about a high point.



Attention Shoppers! Good Hair Day Everyday with @TIGIHaircareUSA

From New York to Europe, The TIGI Creative Team has been busy prepping models backstage for various fashion shows.  Just last week, CATWALK by TIGI Global Creative Director, Nick Irwin created amazing hair looks for the Antipodium, Mark Fast, Osman and John Richmond runways.

ANTIPODIUM LFW Spring Summer 2014
Hair by Nick Irwin, Global Creative Director for Catwalk by TIGI
Inspiration: Antipodium’s SS14 collection is inspired by the ultimate shop girl – that girl who is ethereally cool, drop dead gorgeous and effortlessly confident. The lovechild of candy-coloured Mrs Slocombe of ‘Are You Being Served?” and Cher ‘Clueless’ Horowitz.
Overall Look: Attention Shoppers! “Sweater Hair”


Screen Shot 2013-09-26 at 11.57.40 AMHow-to:
1. On dry hair, apply CATWALK by Catwalk by TIGI Curlesque Lightweight Mousse to the roots only. Use a colouring brush to paint the mousse onto the roots, keeping the middle and ends of the hair clear and natural.
2. Wherever the hair falls, create a natural, low parting in the hair and then, using a medium round bristle brush, blow dry the hair so that it becomes naturally straight.
3. To add a bit more character, secure either side of the hair with a random bobby pin.
4. If needed, lightly coat with CATWALK by TIGI Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray.

“The look that we created for Antipodium’s SS14 collection really brings to life the phrase ‘Attention Shoppers!’. The hair look is confident yet unkempt, with a quite nod to early 90s grunge but kept clean – this girl is uber cool and will definitely grab your attention.”
Nick Irwin, TIGI Global Creative Director

Products Used:
• CATWALK by Catwalk by TIGI Curlesque Lightweight Mousse – $17.95
• CATWALK by TIGI Sleek Mystique Look Lock Hairspray – $20.95
