Who do you regard to be some of the world’s best known and influential hairdressers? I’m glad you asked! Because today I’m in conversation with someone I regard to be one of these hairdressers, the incredible Anthony Mascolo.

Revered for his hairdressing excellence, innovating and continually adapting to change, Anthony Mascolo is an icon to generations of hairdressers – including myself! Ever since the moment I decided to embark on a career in hairdressing Anthony has long been one of my ultimate hair heroes. So to have the opportunity to interview Anthony has to be one of my biggest highlights in hairdressing to date.

The youngest of the five brothers that were behind the creation and global success of Toni & Guy, Anthony Mascolo went on to become the founder of the TIGI International Creative Team in 2003, where he still continues to lead this professional haircare company as their International Artistic Director.

This episode is an extremely rare insight in to one of hairdressings greatest ever names. Anthony’s story is spellbinding, as the man himself talks candidly about the early days of the Toni & Guy brand, the TIGI era, and his latest creation with his wife Pat Mascolo – the beautifully aesthetic Infringe Magazine that celebrates hair culture from around the world.

Be sure to feast you earbuds today with the career story and journey from one of the world’s best known and influential hairdressers of our generation. It’s a monster of a listen!
