This just in: Internationally renowned session stylist Michele McQuillan has been announced as the new Brand Ambassador for TIGI.
One of the nation’s finest editorial stylists, Michele brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and creativity to her new role as TIGI Brand Ambassador.
During a twenty-five year tenure as hair stylist and concept designer, Michele has worked on vast array of projects across the editorial, runway and advertising spheres, lending her expert vision and skillset to a bevy of publications and brand houses respectively.
As part of her new gig, Michele will be leading a team of TIGI stylists in curating the hair looks for this year’s MBFWA Pereira Fitzgerald scheduled for Tuesday 15th May.
We took five with the talented stylists ahead of this year’s MBFWA madness:
TJ: Tell us about your new role with TIGI.
MM: I hope to inspire and grow with an enthusiastic team of TIGI hairstylists.
TJ: What drew you to the brand?
MM: I started working with Toni & Guy in London over 20 years ago and TIGI products were always there. I learned to love and rely on the ‘Bedhead’ range and if it wasn’t for ‘Queen for a Day’ I probably couldn’t do what I do!
TJ: Any hints on next week’s MBFWA hair looks?
MM: Many different hair styles I’m sure to compliment many different designers and their vision but over all trend will include natural, healthy looking hair with a slight bend, and a twist of interest somewhere.
TJ: Any hair trends your loving at present?
MM: I’m loving that hair seems to be moving on from the really natural “no hair look”. Saying that it’s never going to be perfectly set again. Hair will continue to be deconstructed somehow whether that’s a bad tong or a loose ponytail. There’ll always be a twist somewhere.
TJ: What advice do you have for young stylists looking to follow in your footsteps?
MM: There is no easy way for a stylist, just practise, practise, practise! It really is that simple. You have to master the classic hairdressing techniques to deconstruct them and really get creative. Also research is key from fine art to pop culture, dig deep for inspiration.
TJ: What can we expect to see next from Michele McQuillan?
MM: I’d like to grow strong teams and workshops for enthusiastic hairdressers. I’m also keen to get a book out and do more personal projects.
Congratulations to Michelle and the TIGI Tribe!
