It’s kind of like the Beatles are coming

I’m sure the majority of people between the ages of 100 and 20 have seen black-and-white footage of girls screaming and swooning, their bouffant hair-dos brushing against the chain link fence keeping their fainting, quivering selves from mauling John, Paul, Ringo and George with their passion-fueled hysteria.

If The Beatles were a group of hairdressers instead of a group of musicians, a similar — but distinctly less insane — type of energy would erupt here in Toledo this March.

From March 7-8, members of the TONI&GUY Artistic Team, including the son of co-founder Guy Mascolo, will teach a 2-day advanced course on the progression of the 2009 New Puritan collection.

Meet Zak Mascolo.

He’s the cute one with the spiky hair on the right.

For 15 years, Zak has served as a TONI&GUY stylist and leader of the TONI&GUY Artistic Team, based in New York City.  Zak has been the driving force behind TONI&GUY’s last two collections. The former NAHA winner and National Artistic Director approaches education with customization in mind. Whether a stylist is just starting or is a seasoned professional, Zak has a talent for taking every hairdresser to the next level. Having worked on every level within the TONI&GUY empire, Zak is setting the creative and artistic direction for the company.

Next, meet Joseph Marzioli.

He’s the cute one on the left with the cheeky grin.

Joseph heads the advanced education team at the Santa Monica, Calif., TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy as the Advanced Education Director. He also serves as a National Artistic Team member, and started working with TONI&GUY more than 15 years ago. Having traveled across the globe working on celebrities, photo shoots and TONI&GUY collections, Joseph  always is looking to fashion for his inspiration. He infuses each class with high energy and the intent to make the information as accessible as possible giving stylists the tools they need to achieve their desired end result.

Meet Darian Bishop.

(This is Darian’s NAHA award-winning avant garde work, not Darian herself.)

Fresh off of her 2009 NAHA Avant Garde win, this former TONI&GUY graduate and Dallas Advanced Education Director says she is excited to be hitting the road. Always looking to leave stylists inspired with something to take back into their salons she loves sharing ideas, inspiration and techniques that will advance the hairdresser. Darian was also one of the creators of TONI&GUY’s latest collection the New Puritan.

Meet Kristin.

She’s the cute girl in the middle who happens to be writing this. Kristin is the recruiting director at the Toledo, Ohio TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy and is very excited to be able to bring such talent, vision and inspiration as Zak, Joseph and Darian exhibit to share with Toledo-area hairstylists.

Zak and Joseph are just such nice guys, I like that I’m in the photo. Do you see my bouffant hair-do and my swooning? I told you, like the Beatles.

The other members of The Beatles of the hairdressing world are not coming — Bruno Mascolo and Anthony Mascolo (their Zak’s uncles) and also are co-founders of TONI&GUY.

Meet Bruno …

He’s the one in the jaunty hat. (Paul and Laurel also are in this photo. They are phenomenal giants in the industry, as well, and so incredibly kind.)

Oh, is that? Yep, there’s Kristin. 😉

… and Anthony … the Mick Jagger of hair; Mr. He’s Won London Hairdresser of the Year a Bazillion Times.

Aaaaaan, there’s Kristin again.  Oh, yeah.

Anyway, back to the advanced training.

This two-day class only has 17 slots open, so interested stylists need to act quickly!

TiGi InCrowd discounts apply, as well as discounts to salons who bring four or more stylists to the class.

Call 419.TONI.GUY for more information. To register, e-mail

See you in March!


  1. This sounds like it is going to be a fantastic event. I wonder if they will be in any other locations?
