Early years[edit]

By the time he left school he was a competent and fully qualified hairdresser. His first job was in the family's Toni & Guy salon in South London, where his father and brother Bruno also worked. Anthony specialised in hairdressing for photographic shoots, and became a photographer himself.[2]


Over the years Anthony's work has won him many accolades. At 18 he won his first award for: "Most promising hairdresser".
