Celebrating 40 Years
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.”
