FASHION WEEK: TIGI at Walter Baker

Maggie Mulhern | September 7, 2012 | 1:16 PM

Nick Irwin, TIGI Creative Director, creates beautiful hair for fashion shows in all of the major markets around the world. For the Walter Baker presentation, shown tonight at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC, he decided to create what he calls "the ultimate hair". "It's a younger, more accessible line," he says. "Walter teamed up with Skull Candy head phones and it got a bit tricky. The clothing is eclectic and bright. The hair had to be able to carry everything. It's the hair everyone wants. Long, clean, glossy and high end. It was a perfect fit for this presentation."

I only had Nick for a couple of minutes and decided to ask him what everyone asks ME...."how does a salon professional get on a team to do fashion week." Nick offers some great advice: "Really get yourself out there," he says. "Get involved with a brand that participates in fashion shows. Make sure to let people KNOW you want to do it."

Check out this three minute interview with Nick and get some insight from the master himself.

Color Zoom 101: Every year, Goldwell releases a trend collection that is used as the inspiration for its annual haircolor and style competition, Color Zoom. Across the globe, Color Zoom starts on a national level. Beauty pros compete in three categories— Creative Colorist, New Talent Colorist, Partner Colorist—by submitting a photo of their interpretation of the trend. Once the Gold winners of each category are determined on a national level, they go on to compete internationally on behalf of their respective countries during a live recreation of the look on their model—including the hair color—in front of a judging panel and audience. The international leg of the competition takes place in a new city each year.
