I have been fortunate enough to have seen Anthony Mascolo in hairdressing action. One of the Master hairstylist's of the famous Mascolo brothers and makers of Dirty Secret. With the recent, and sudden death of elderly brother Guy Mascolo, founder of Toni&Guy he is still in mourning but has shown the resillience and drive that brought him to the top of his hairdressing game. I will never forget the time that I bumped into him as I was sneaking out of a class at the famed Mondial Coiffure Beauté in Paris. Alas I stumbled upon him smoking a fag on a stairwell I was speechless and starstruck as he looked at me with his handsome rebel face and exclaimed, "How you doing mate?" I was in Heaven.
In this rebellious, righteous collection, created by Anthony Mascolo he turns to one of his favorite cutting techniques—undercutting. Here, the technique evolves, thanks to a new approach to balance and fresh details. The sweetest of the three cuts is created with block graduation and disconnection and finished with slicing and point-cutting to soften the outline and create detail. Hair dresser babble. The other two cuts are more radical, with longer disconnection and riotously, texturized crown lengths. It’s all about showing your strength, says Anthony, with forceful shapes that answer the call of the “rock-style lifestyle.” Can you tell I love a blonde Mohawk?
