The iconic hairdressing chain Toni & Guy released a statement yesterday announcing that the brand's co-founder, Giuseppe "Toni" Mascolo, has died at the age of 75. "It is with deepest sorrow that this weekend we said our final goodbyes to our founder, leader, husband, father and grandfather, Giuseppe Toni Mascolo," the statement says.

Mascolo established the first of the famous salons in Clapham, south London, in 1963 with brother Gaetano, known as Guy. When Guy was given the opportunity to take over the Clapham salon where he worked, Mascolo left his job and the pair opened the first Toni & Guy branch. The company has since grown to comprise two global, franchised hair salon groups, with 475 Toni & Guy shops across 48 countries.
