Author’s hairstyles at the International Tennis BNL
ALSO FOR HANKOVIC, NADAL AND GIORGI THE HAIR DRESSING SERVICE OF TESSIER HAIRDRESSERS
Andy Murray and Grigor Dimitrov have been improvising hairdressers to ease the tension and give themselves a smile. Novak Djokovic, on the other hand, never misses a chance to pass by Carlo for a hug before and after the match: it is now a lucky gesture after last year’s results. This is what happens in the beauty salon for hair signed by the duo Tessier and set up as a bunker forbidden to the public, in the great village of the Internazionali BNL of tennis, underway in Rome. “The players are very superstitious, they try not to change anything when they win. They are superstitious with everything. Here we do mainly cuts, few hairstyles. They prefer the change of look “, confirms Giuseppe Tessier who, together with his brother Carlo, boast an author’s story about the hairdressing trade inherited from his grandfather, with salons at Cinecittà and Piazza di Spagna, in Rome.
CURIOSITY – “When women play, they prefer to queue for convenience. In many cases it is we who do them. We use Tigi spray wax that gives thickness and does not grease your hair. This wax does not fatten the hair and gives consistency. Or we fix it with lacquer. Both men and women have served the same percentage these days. In both cases they asked us for a cut because, for the little time they have available, they don’t always manage to do it before some big tournaments. We made a small change to the look of Songa (French player n.13 in the world) by shaving the hair on the side and inserting a line on the side with the razor. Normally we use more the brush than the plate. The color? We did it a couple of times, yesterday, for example, we did the shatush at Jelena Jankovic and just before the game with Camila Giorgi (who lost) Eleonora Tessier, my daughter, made her a braid that would seem to have brought her luck ”.
TIPS – In the heavily armored player’s lounge, Carlo and Giuseppe Tessier are the hairdressers of all the international tennis players. Here they all pass and have passed: from Flavia Pennetta to Bob Bryan, from Simona Halep to Fognini. And here the advice is lavished generously. Four cornerstones for healthy hair protection:
rub the skin with fingertips for at least 5 minutes, every day;
never dry the hair with the hair dryer going controversial, rather it is better to follow its direction;
carefully dab the hair with a sponge towel;
when holding a mask, cover the garment with a wet cloth (taken as a turban) and heated to allow better absorption of the products on the hair.
