INDIRA SCHAUWECKER - International Artistic Director

“I love that this course allows me to share something I’m so passionate about and to pass on my knowledge to stimulate my students’ imagination. I love to bring them on a journey through interaction, creation and exploration and help evolve their thinking to create incredible, detailed looks. At TONI&GUY we have an amazing history of hairdressers who have pushed avant-garde to new levels of expertise. In this course you will learn about our history of Avant Garde, the inspiration behind particular looks and how to recreate them. “


"I love teaching this course because we don’t teach how to do hair, we teach how to create art. My advice for anyone going down this path, master the skill of patience because these looks will take time to create. Be adventurous with your inspiration and look to other crafts beyond hairdressing."
