A party was held recently to celebrate Gordon Mayo’s 40 years in the hairdressing business, and the recent refurbishment of the TONI&GUY Malta salon in Gzira which has evolved into the first salon in Malta to boast the essensuals brand, the next generation of salons from the TONI&GUY empire.
Over 150 guests savoured the excellent food and flowing wine on the magnificent terrace at The Villa, while enjoying the balmy summer evening and taking in the beautiful views of Balluta Bay. They also enjoyed stunning visuals of the new state-of-the-art essensuals salon.
In order to celebrate this impressive milestone, Mayo, Chief Executive and CEO of TONI&GUY Malta, gathered together his family, closest friends, colleagues, staff members and his clients. In a short speech, he recalled how after taking up hairdressing when he left school, he continued his studies in the UK before returning to Malta to open his first salon Gordon’s Creations in 1976. A turning point in his career was his chance encounter with a book by TONI&GUY which introduced him to the company and started off the strong relationship with the Mascolo brothers – the founders of TONI&GUY.
This led to the launch of the Maltese franchise, with the first salon in Gzira being opened in 1994 and more salons following in Paceville, The Hilton, at The Plaza and Arkadia, Gozo. He concluded by thanking family and friends for all the priceless support and encouragement over the years; his colleagues and staff members for all the hard work that contributed to the salons’ success and last but not least his clients, who, he said, “are the backbone of any business, and you certainly have been the backbone of mine.”
The long, sunny days of summer are coming to a close. If you spent your summer out-and-about, enjoying the sun and sea, it will have likely taken a toll on your hair’s health and lustre. All the elements of summer are against keeping your hair in its best condition. Not only is the sun hard on your hair, we also wash and comb our hair more often in summer, which can cause tearing and breaking of the cuticles which protect and strengthen the hair – called “mechanical damage”. Your hairstyle may not last as long and your hair can get frizzy, curly and your style puffy.
Fortunately, there are fantastic products and treatments available which can restore the health of your hair and the natural protection it requires. At TONI&GUY, professional Technicians will advise you on the most appropriate treatments and supply you with the latest and very best products available – bringing back your hair’s lustre for autumn and in time for the many special occasions of the coming season.
Autumn is also a perfect time for a new look. In October the TONI&GUY team will be brimming with ideas for up-to-date new looks from the London catwalks. Gordon Mayo, Chairman and CEO of TONI&GUY Malta tells us “Fringes and strong multi-colours blend in perfectly with the fashion we have seen on the catwalks this year.”
“We are seeing a trend towards ‘London Street’ – a cool vibe with strong bold shapes, interjected with hip, super-cool textures. From the 16th to the 20th September, London will start its annual Fashion Week, of which TONI&GUY is again an official sponsor. This gives us an advance look at the spring/summer clothes and hair for 2012.
I am sure this season we are going to see exciting experiments in hairdressing with shapes and texture and I am looking forward to another great year ahead. As always, my talented team and I will pour all our creativity, energy and passion into inspirational new styles which enhance not only our clients’ hair but their overall image.”
