Mimi talks to Sacha Mascolo Tarbuck, Global Creative Director of TONI&GUY.

Background – academic/geographic – why did you decide to become a hairdresser?
When I left school I went onto to study Art and Fashion at A level but soon tired of being a student and not earning my own money. Hairdressing was something that I was naturally good at and so I went into the family business.

What’s your USP (unique selling point)?
That’s difficult question to answer about yourself! I was the youngest ever winner of Newcomer of the Year and the only female within the TONI&GUY family (I work with my Father and younger brother). I am also the only female Director of a Global Salon group.

What celebrity do you think has great hair and style?
Alexa Chung, I often see her at London Fashion Week watching shows and she’s even more effortlessly stylish in real life.

What tips do you have to achieve great hair?
It’s quite simple really – a great haircut is as much of a style staple as a designer hand bag or great shoes. Invest in a good haircut, get it coloured regularly (even the most natural hair looks best with colour) and use professional haircare that your stylist has recommended for your hair type/style.

Key hair trends for this season?
Bobs remain THE popular choice, the ultimate, versatile length and you can put your own individual spin on it by personalising, blunt, weighty fringes.

What’s the best part of your job?
Everything, I have the best job in the world! I have an incredible role, from Art Directing International advertising campaigns for TONI&GUY and label.m, to working on our annual collection book and DVD to product development and design, no two days are ever the same. I am very lucky to be surrounded by amazing teams and I work with incredibly enthusiastic and creative people.

How would you like to see TONI&GUY, the brand, move forward? 
I would like to see TONI&GUY to continue to grow and expand, offering the same high quality hairdressing and service in every salon, whilst continuing to maintain our link with fashion.

Career highlight/biggest achievement to date 
Probably receiving both Superbrand and Coolbrand Status for TONI&GUY – we are the only hairdressing company have received both awards and received Super Brand status for a second time in 2008. I was delighted to win Hair Magazine’s ‘Hairdresser of the Year’ for 2008 – it’s always great to win an award, especially when it’s voted for by the readers.
