It was a most exciting night in Hollywood, California this past Sunday. Bruno (CEO), Anthony (Senior Vice President) and Zak Mascolo (Director of Image) held a special dinner and ceremony to announce the winners of the TONI & GUY PHOTOGRAPHIC AWARDS. More than 200 stylists showed up at the W Hotel to see some of the most creative entries since the competition began 15 years ago. There were 750 entries in several categories including color, fantasy, mens and student.

"At the end of the day, it's one of the most motivational things a stylist can do," he says. "It's a great way to immortalize their work. And as far as the work entered here... it's tremendous.
