In 1963, Toni Mascolo and his brother Guy opened their first salon in Clapham, London.[4]

In 1985, the company opened its first salon outside Europe, in Dallas, Texas. It also launched the TIGI product line.[5] In 1990, the Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy was opened.[5]

In 2009, the TIGI product line was acquired by Unilever for £296 million.[6]
