The hairdressing industry is shocked and saddened by the news of the passing of Dennis Langford this week.

Dennis Langford led Toni & Guy Australia to be at the forefront of business, education and fashion since 1995.

He was a celebrated industry leader, icon and an exceptionally nice guy too! Always acting with integrity and respect, Dennis and T&G are responsible for educating and training some of the most talented hairdressers here, as well as overseas. Dennis was renowned globally for his work on stage, presenting countless creative, entertaining and educational shows and seminars.

The Australian Hairdressing Council has been inundated with stories of how Dennis influenced hairdressers worldwide as a mentor, trainer, friend and legend. Described by one as “an absolute giant of a man, Dennis built a platform for so many of us who walked the road that he so powerfully lit”.

RIP Dennis, you will be greatly missed.
