Hair styling is a gift that runs in the family, his mother Bushra and brother are also hair stylists and operate their own salon in Canada.

Tony’s passion for beauty and elegance reflects the culture and highlights of the cultures of the countries he lived in.

“My mother was always invited at Gala events and the most refined parties when we lived in Egypt and Italy, she was the queen of beauty “recalls Tony”.

Although she was always surrounded by flawlessly dressed women with beautiful hair, she taught me that “the most important relationship you will ever have, it is the one you have with yourself”.

In order to make other people happy, you first have to be happy within yourself, specially if you are going to create art with their hair.

Tony has an outgoing personality and delights greatly in his guests’ satisfaction. 

He has coloured and styled the hair of entire teams at the most fashionable and hip Canadian magazines, as well as many International actresses and singers, including Lara Daans and Janet Jackson.
