Students Get Inspired for Avant Garde Looks

It's Avant Garde time!


Once a month our Junior A’s get ready for the most creative project in the TONI&GUY cosmetology program curriculum. This month was very special, our students dug deep in their minds to create a piece with the best rule: THERE ARE NO RULES. From glitter and antlers, to the definition of power, here are the student-created Avant Garde pieces from this month and the inspiration that guided them.
