For over 50 years the TONI&GUY curriculum has been honed by educators all over the world, constantly updated for timely and timeless information that keeps you on the cutting edge of the hair and beauty industry. Ask any professional, they will recognize our name and the quality it stands for. You deserve the best, which is why we train our students under TIGI and TONI&GUY.

    We’re Here

    founders Christopher J. Rollins, owner of the popular and successful Christopher’s Salon & Day Spa in Guilford, and Michael Criscuolo, Christopher’s Salon Director. They created the Academy to provide students with an alternative to the existing, limited educational opportunities in Connecticut. More important, they hope to pass along the keys to their own success – knowledge, a mastery of the basics and a desire to stay ahead of the competition with new skills and training in the latest styles, products and ervices.
