TONI KALIN x ELEVEN AUSTRALIA
After having worked with and for Tigi several decades, Toni & Stephanie decided to totally focus on their academy and grow their own brand. Initially neither of them had the intention to work for an other brand but when ELEVEN Australia came along, things just clicked. Charmed by the products and having a mutual philosophy with the brand, Toni & Stephanie have incorporated ELEVEN Australia in their salons as well as being the ones who introduced the brand to the Belgian market. The fresh approach, ecological mindset and straightforwardness of the brand were only a few reasons, why Toni & Stephanie opted to take on the challenge in helping the brand grow in Europe. Due to their experience and fascinating education, ELEVEN Australia has become one of the fastest growing brands in the industry.
