Photographic Awards

Every year, TONI&GUY stylists, students, and alumni come together to celebrate TONI&GUY’s annual collection. The celebration continues with the highly-coveted evening awards show to highlight TONI&GUY’s top talent! Being a student at a TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy not only teaches you the tools to become a skilled hairdresser but also gives you the opportunity to attend exciting industry events such as the Creative Release and Photographic Awards!

Creative Release

Every year, Creative Director, Zak Mascolo and the TONI&GUY Artistic Team work together to create a new collection of cuts and colours based on an inspirational theme. The Creative Release is a big show where the new collection is debuted to an audience of TONI&GUY students, alumni, and stylists from all over North America. The show consists of a runway show of the new collection, a live demonstration of all the new looks and much more!

Photographic Awards

Every year TONI&GUY stylists and student stylists have a chance to show their best work in our creative competition, the Photographic Awards. This company-wide competition is a huge part of our culture that emphasizes continuing education and leading with innovation. We have aimed to recognize the best cosmetology work within the TONI&GUY community every year since 1996.

To enter as a TONI&GUY student or alumni, you must submit a photo months before the Photographic Awards. Finalists are then chosen and announced prior to the show. The winners are honored at the Photographic Awards show in over 20 categories.

As a TONI&GUY student and alumni, this opportunity will strengthen your technical skills as well as business skills. Your entry is so much more than just a photo, as it’s all about the details. The focus is always the work as a whole and will be judged on composition, hair, wardrobe, makeup and lighting.
