Co-founder of iconic hairdressing chain Toni&Guy, Giuseppe ‘Toni’ Mascolo, has died at the age of 75. Toni&Guy released a statement saying “It is with deepest sorrow that this weekend we said our final goodbyes to our founder, leader, husband, father and grandfather, Toni Mascolo.”
The first salon was established in Clapham, south London, in 1963 with brother Gaetano, known as Guy. When Guy was given the opportunity to take over the Clapham salon where he worked, Mascolo left his job and the pair opened the first Toni & Guy branch. The company has since grown to comprise two global, franchised hair salon groups, with 475 Toni & Guy shops across 48 countries.
