When it comes to ‘your hair, your way’ TIGI Bed Head means it. Bed head is an expression, a culture, a lifestyle that speaks to the new garde.

 

As part of their plan for world domination, or at the very least, hair domination,  TIGI has curated a group of individuals – very interesting individuals in fact –  to come together to hone their distinctive voice through a love of hair, beauty, styling, photography, art, nightlife, food, and music. More than that, they will become the eyes and ears of Bed Head. Supporting and communicating with the Creative Team to ensure that TIGI continue to lead the way in hair trends and product innovations.

 

So with this said, TIGI Bed Head are proud to announce the launch of the Bed Head Street Squad; a creative collective made up of  raw & rare talent brought together to create a new, innovative lifestyle blog, inspiration tool and an all-round good read for urban life.
