Who We Are

At the center of the TONI&GUY philosophy stands the pillar of education. Across every facet of the brand, our aim is to upgrade the industry one hairdresser at a time.

What sets TONI&GUY apart in beauty education is our ability to give insider access to the world of beauty and fashion. TONI&GUY’s unique approach to hair is as fashion-forward as the latest trends and as timeless as its three generations of talent and creative vision.

With over 50 years of experience, we are international leaders in the hairdressing industry, setting new standards for hairdressers and making exceptional education available globally. TONI&GUY has established a worldwide presence leading the hairdressing industry in education, innovation, and artistic excellence.

Our Story

TONI&GUY was founded by second generation hairdressers and brothers, Toni, Guy, Bruno and Anthony Mascolo in 1963. Their father Franco was an entrepreneurial hairdresser and salon owner who moved his family to London. It was there that the brothers followed in their father’s footsteps and opened up the first TONI&GUY in the South of London.

After 20 years establishing the TONI&GUY name throughout Europe, TONI&GUY took North America by storm and in 1985 opened the first TONI&GUY salon in Dallas, Texas. From there they launched the TIGI product line. Five years later, in 1990, they opened the first TONI&GUY hairdressing academy—a natural extension to the TONI&GUY foundation of education and on-going training.

From the South of Italy to the South of London, the Mascolo family has been a standout in the beauty industry because of its ability to bridge the gap between fashion and hairdressing, between cutting-edge and commercial viability and because of the solid philosophy that each client should be treated as an individual. No matter what the trends are, each hairstyle given should be personalized to suit the client.

"Our Britalian heritage is the marriage between precision cutting with Italian flair - it is what differentiates us in the industry."
