Toni & Guy is one of the most successful brands to come out of the hairdressing industry. With more than 475 salons across 48 countries, CEO, OBE and co-founder Toni Mascolo and his brother Guy started TONI&GUY back in 1963 with a single salon in Clapham, London. The company expanded successfully through the ingenious creativity, quality and exciting marketing strategy.

‘Early Days’

Having arrived in England from their native Italy in the 1950’s, The Mascolo family settled in Clapham, South London, with eldest sons Toni and Guy both following their father’s footsteps into hairdressing.

A celebrated hairdresser himself, Francesco Mascolo had taught all of his sons to cut hair from an early age and despite Toni’s interest in academic studies and a desire to pursue a career in law, his move to London put an end to that dream and Toni began working as his father’s assistant in a busy London salon.

Toni soon realised how much he enjoyed working as a hairdresser and continued to work alongside his father building a large clientele at Viccari’s salon in Cox Street, Mayfair. When this salon was sold, Francesco secured a place at the award-winning Renato’s in Dover Street, where Guy his younger son joined him to fulfill his apprenticeship.

Following three days of unemployment (the only such period in his lifetime), a young Toni Mascolo grew a moustache to create a more ‘mature’ appearance and became the manager of South London salon, Gerard’s, at just 16. Always keen to better himself, it wasn’t long before Toni moved back to Victoria Street, near Westminster, enjoying a high profile clientele and working gruelling fourteen-hour-long days in an effort to save enough money to buy his mother a house of her own. Meanwhile, Guy moved back to South London where his talent saw him headhunted to join busy Clapham salon, Cecile Moss.

12th December 1962 saw the tragic loss of their beloved mother and the realisation for Toni and Guy that they would now have to support their father and three younger brothers, the youngest of which, Anthony, was just five years old.

In 1963 Guy was offered the opportunity to take over the salon where he worked. Despite the huge risk involved, Toni elected to leave his well-paid job in a central London salon to join his brother in Clapham, though it would mean abandoning the large, loyal client base he had built.

In January 1963 the first TONI&GUY salon opened its doors and the brothers worked hard to build the business. With a large rent to pay, it was a struggle to survive. Having inherited some busy stylists from the original salon, including a young Pauline O’Donnell (later to be Mascolo, when she marries Toni in 1970), helped to boost the salon’s business, which quickly gained momentum. The brothers’ early promotional activity included leaflet drops in the local area advertising their ‘Italian style’.

A time of extreme change in youth culture, the 1960’s saw an explosion in fashion as attitudes were changing. TONI&GUY offered a unisex service in contrast to the traditional culture of salons and barbershops that were unable to cope with the new graphic shapes for women and men’s longer styles. By the end of 1964 the salon was fully booked and the brothers realised that they were destined for bigger things.

Fast forward to 2010, Toni & Guy where already a force to be reckoned with dominating the entire global sphere and most recommended amongst hairdressers and the industry as a whole.

TONI&GUY further cemented its fashion credentials as the partnership with the British Fashion Council continued to develop throughout the decade.  Toni Mascolo continued to expand the salon network, adding new territories to the ever-expanding global presence. The launch of a new salon group, essensuals London, also saw Toni establish his first franchise salons in North America – with doors opening in New Jersey and Plano, Texas. Toni received further awards thanks to his unique style of leadership, including a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ from the Fellowship of British Hairdressing.

Toni Mascolo departed us last year. But, his impact and legacy has and will never fail to keep his name alive for centuries to come. His family commented, “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.

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.

‘The Future of the Brand’
With an eye firmly on the future, TONI&GUY continues to take on exciting new challenges and collaborations. 2013 saw label.m receive the ultimate seal of fashion approval, as the range became the ‘Official Haircare product of London Fashion Week’ – a landmark move for the British fashion council and a first for the hairdressing industry. This plus numerous collaborations with key British design talent reinforces TONI&GUY’s position as the fashion-led hairdresser.

500 Years of Covent Garden: The Sir Simon Milton Foundation Garden in partnership with Capco

 

Covent Garden is set to be reimagined as a breathtaking Show Garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, bringing a much-loved part of London to the world-renowned event for the first time. 

 ‘500 Years of Covent Garden: The Sir Simon Milton Foundation garden in partnership with Capco’ will be designed by award-winning garden designer Lee Bestall to showcase the area’s rich horticultural heritage. The garden celebrates Covent Garden’s early roots as a fruit orchard until the 16th century and later as a flower market, as well as the iconic architecture it is known for today, including the Market Building. 

 The Show Garden is sponsored by Capco, the landowner and steward of Covent Garden, in partnership with the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, the Westminster based charity which champions opportunities for young and old.

Central features of the garden include three 60-year-old retired apple trees, harking back to the early beginnings of ‘Convent Garden’ as an orchard belonging to and supplying the monk’s table at Westminster Abbey, in addition to the 300 year-old provenance of the neighbourhood as a fruit and flower market.  Flowering herbaceous plants will reflect the colours of apple blossom and large steel structures will reflect the distinctive arches of Covent Garden’s Grade II listed Market Building. 

 Reclaimed cobble pathways will guide visitors into the centre of the garden, just as the surrounding streets do into Covent Garden’s Piazza. A central seating area, paved with reclaimed York stone, provides a place to sit and relax, inspired by the social and modern dining environment of the Piazza which, as London’s first public square, was designed to bring people together. 

 Immediately following Chelsea Flower Show, elements of the garden will be given a home on the iconic Piazza that provided its inspiration. The retired apple trees, planters brimming with floral displays and furniture from the show garden will be relocated to Covent Garden’s Piazza to entice shoppers to sit and enjoy the floral oasis. Luxury alfresco food and drink pop-ups will enhance the garden during the summer months, starting with a Nyetimber bar from Thursday 1 June, serving one of the world’s most celebrated English sparkling wines with a taste of Covent Garden’s most popular dining destinations.

Commenting on the announcement, Lee Bestall, garden designer, said I’m incredibly excited about bringing retired orchard trees to Chelsea to help tell the fascinating backstory of Covent Garden through a beautiful, relaxing space designed for people to share a special moment in together – just like the Covent Garden we know and love today”. 

 Beverley Churchill, Creative Director, Capco, said “We are thrilled to be celebrating the rich heritage of Covent Garden, with a garden that we are proud to sponsor on behalf of the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. Lee’s design for the garden is remarkable and demonstrates our ongoing passion and commitment to creating high quality green open space for the public to enjoy at both of our London estates”.

 Robert Davis MBE DL, Founder and Trustee of the Sir Simon Milton Foundation said “We’re delighted to be back at Chelsea Flower Show and working closely with Covent Garden who share our vision of offering more opportunities, spaces and activities for those living in the capital. We strive to continue Simon’s vision of a society in which communities care, the young aspire and older people thrive and I look forward to seeing the many visitors at Chelsea enjoying the garden”.

Joana Groba Casillas, 23, has just completed her masters’ degree at Chelsea college of Art and Design, displaying a piece titled Identitatis at the postgraduate summer show. As migrants attempt to find safety away from the current warzone in Syria, it has touched the hearts of many, and inspired Joana to show the other side of the ocean. Born in Columbia but residing in Madrid throughout most of her life, it is a passionate topic for her. She tells Chelsea Monthly all about her recent exhibition, the inspirations for it and what’s next for her conceptual work.

Can you tell us a bit more about your piece?

The piece that I did was for the MA fine art show at Chelsea. It’s an installation, which has two pieces, a video and a mural. It’s adapted to a specific space of 5mx5m and one of the walls has a mirror vinyl attached. The projection of the sea is projected into that mirror and reflected back into a mural made out of concrete.

How did you come up with that idea?

It’s a whole year investigation; I started researching about identity and origins of ethnicity. And I ended up with the concept of migration and identity on the migration. Especially with the whole situation in Spain and the south of Europe with migration and the constant cases of people travelling and passing away trying to cross the ocean. Because I live in Spain, I go to the coast quite often. I guess the concept of the sea is quite different and I was able to interview someone that was in contact with that situation. His concept of the sea was completely different; he would say that the sea was a graveyard and because he was there helping people get out of boats, I guess that was strong imagery. Most people don’t see that, they see a relaxing environment, peaceful even. When it actually doesn’t completely reflect that.

You can tell that a lot of thought has gone into your piece; you even incorporated the seawater that contains the DNA of deceased migrants?

I mixed the water of the Mediterranean with the cement, so the actual cement would contain that water and it would be concrete. The sea that is projected is also the sea of the Mediterranean.

How did the exhibition go?

I think it went pretty well, the preview on the first night was pretty full. I think that was the worst night for people to actually see work because there were too many people. But I had really good feedback, even to the last day there were quite a lot of people coming through.

So, this piece has taken you a year to complete along with the idea?

This concept was a bit more recent because I had been exploring more of the concept of ethnicity and classification.

Have you come across any struggles with this exhibition?

Oh, yes! First of all the size. This was the first time I’d actually used concrete. I had serveral problems with the ratio of water and because its sea water I guess the hardness varies, so you have to do several trials. And then once you do there’s the weight, to move it around and find a wall that’s strong enough for it to lean over.

Are there any artists that inspired this idea?

It’s not so much the idea, but the way of portraying all of this, its conceptual rather than literal. For Adrian Piper, Santiago Sierra and Dora Garcia, its more about the concept than the actual idea, I guess any artist that works in this way was a big inspiration.

What’s been your favourite piece that you’ve worked on?

I have several different lines of work; this is all about identity and origins. And I did several urban interventions for Space, public space and the concept of exclusion, where I take ground and reconfigure pathways. That was fun because you get to see the reactions of people when they avoid or play around with those marks in the ground.

Are you working on anything right now?

I quite interested in continuing working with the cement. But its not like I follow a pattern, my pieces don’t have similarities in the materials from one piece to another, it’s more about the concept that actually flows.

Do you have any more exhibitions aligned for the coming months?

Well right now I’m looking forward to moving back to London mid October time. I’m staying with a couple of MA students to curate a show outside of Chelsea, but that would be around November time. But yeah any show that comes up really. We’re also working with Chelsea salon.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?

I would want to project myself, seeing myself working in Madrid, well not working but establishing Madrid by producing more for either London or New York. I would probably like to be associated with a particular gallery and push myself like Oscar Murillo did.

Is Oscar Murillo someone that you look up to?

Yeah, he’s a young Columbian artist, that made smart choices enabling him to become well recognised. He was selected by one of the most influential curators at the moment, Okwui Enwezor for the Venice Biennale 2015.

What enticed you to come over to London for your postgraduate degree?

There is more opportunity for showing work and exhibiting, but also its more open to a younger market. It’s a big city, which is constantly alive. The vibe pushed me to want to go to London.

Have you received any negative feedback that may have deterred your ambitions?

With my work they usually don’t tell you. Someone recently said it was too conceptual. But art is changing a lot, it’s diverting into that art that is commercial and conceptual. The work that is shown for the experience of watching or seeing, whereas others are made to observe as it’s hanging in your living room.

What made you want to study art? Has it always been a passion?

Yeah, there was never a moment I doubted that this was what I wanted.

Do you have any advice for other budding artists?

Apply to everything you can, every contest, every residency, everything you can. most importantly always be honest with everything you do!

Last night saw the launch of London’s newest members club, South Kensington Club. Situated in South Kensington… obviously between Hyde Park and London’s best-known museums. The South Kensington Club is a unique concept for discerning individuals seeking a chilled out lifestyle offering for the body and soul. The club is Located in the iconic Georgian Music Hall and as i made my entry as you do…. It was clear, that the general theme of the SKC is elegance, unpretentious, and homely.. My kind of place.. Especially when overcoming the hustle and bustle of London, members are able to finally have a place to enjoy, reflect, relax and re-energise. This was re-confirmed when the beautiful and talented singer/songwriter Aluna George (who decided to take time off from the recording studio) approached me to join her table and i gladly obliged as we sat down and enjoyed the beautiful sounds of Colomboloco the house band for the night who rocked the evening with some eclectic tunes led by lead vocalist Francesco Blue Bird Fillzzola .
