The renowned record of Toni & Guy Miami speaks for itself: After more than 20 years of providing cuts, styling and technical services to a host of satisfied, returning customers, CEO Terry Mascolo has her team honed to perfection. “Being able to offer a stylist a great place to work is an accomplishment in and of itself,” she says. “It was such a dream to build this beautiful salon and watch everyone working on our clients.” What’s more, she says she never knows who will stop in to say hello. “We’ve been visited by Élan Sassoon, Robert Lobetta, Nick Irwin and other icons of the fashion industry,” she says. Mascolo currently handles not just the daily running of her sleek salon, but all the public relations for the business, including organizing fundraisers for charity, high-profile international events, photoshoots and coordinating styling for fashion shows.

“Hairstyles change as fast as fashion, and we have grown an incredibly strong professional team that’s able to deliver the latest styles from all over the globe.”

Bobby Barros, CEO & Lead Hair Designer at chic Ecstasy Salon in Coral Gables says he welcomes all of his clients with a smile. “It’s just another way to show them how much I appreciate them,” he says. As a stylist who became fascinated with style as a child when he started giving his sister’s dolls different up-dos, Barros knows that a large part of his industry is keeping up with current fashions. He and his staff also go to great lengths to offer services such as massages, manicures and facials that complement the hairstyling side of the business in order to make customers shine in every way. The salon also recently expanded its space, and with the help of Barros’ hand-picked staff, they are providing more services than ever. “The expansion has been fantastic,”he says, “but seeing our clients happy is always the most important aspect.”

“Making sure that our clients feel rejuvenated and relaxed is the top priority of our entire team!”
