Since Phagans is not owned by a particular product brand we can experiment with a variety of different styling products and find the ones appropriate for our stylists and their customers. One of our salon favorites is the Catwalk by TIGI brand, and specifically Your Highness Shampoo.
Catwalk designed this shampoo to be color safe while enhancing body and preventing static and flyways. Its scent comes from sweet almond oil and it creates a lot of thick lather. It’s especially good if you have fine, thin hair as it will provide volume and prevent dryness. Blow it out as is or pair it with Your Highness Conditioner for even more volume.
TIGI describes Catwalk as a professional hair care brand designed by hairdressers for hairdressers. With …
