Toni&Guy Founder Giuseppe Toni Mascolo Passes Away

by MS Staff | December 12, 2017

Toni&Guy founder Giuseppe Toni Mascolo passed away on Sunday, December 10. A press statement from Toni&Guy reads:

"It is with deep sorrow that the family announce the passing of founder, leader, husband, and father, Giuseppe Toni Mascolo. Toni was surrounded by his family at the time of his death.

 Following in his father’s hairdressing footsteps, the OBE, Honorary Professor of Durham University and consummate professional, launched, along with his brother Guy, TONI&GUY as a single salon in Clapham, South London.

 Over the course of more than 50 years, one salon grew to become more than 600 salons around the globe including the launch of a smaller salon group, essensuals, a multi-award winning professional haircare range, label.m, and 19 TONI&GUY academies worldwide. ‘Education, education, education’ was a known motto of Toni’s, and indeed the cornerstone of the Superbrand.

Toni Mascolo was highly respected within the hairdressing community, he was known as approachable and someone who made time for everyone. It is no surprise that he built up a lengthy list of achievements, which transcended the industry to include business, entrepreneurship and charity. He along with his wife Pauline started the TONI&GUY Charitable Foundation in 2003, which has raised more than £2,014,735 for a variety of causes and organisations.

 But it wasn’t all about hair, Toni was an avid supporter of Chelsea Football Club, and launched or has been involved with, several independent projects such as coffee shops, property, and most recently his very own pasta sauce.

 Toni is survived by his wife Pauline, brothers Bruno and Anthony and his children Sacha, Christian and Pierre and his many grandchildren."

MODERN SALON sends deep regrets to The Mascolos and to the Toni&Guy family.
