MOB Partners with TIGI/ Toni&Guy in First Official MOB-Certified School

Newtown, CT, 1/10/22. Ricci’s Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy (Newtown, CT) and TIGI Hairdressing Academy (Guilford, CT) are thrilled to announce a new, official partnership with Masters of Balayage, to incorporate world renown balayage education into cosmetology student curriculum.

“Year after year, we aim to deliver our student’s the worlds best education, so they can enter the work force more confidently, the second they step into a salon,” said Matt Riccio, owner at Ricci’s Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy, and TIGI Hairdressing Academy. “By adding MOB’s balayage training to our curriculum, our education has never been stronger.”

“To think we would one day partner with an iconic brand like Toni&Guy / TIGI, a company which was also the foundation of my training, really was a dream come true,” said Ryan Weeden, MOB Founder / CEO. “As balayage continues to evolve, it still proves to be one of the most in-demand (and profitable) services. That’s why it needs to be taught early. Roller sets and perms are out. Balayage is in. And it’s exploding.”
