Darren & Amy / OWNERS & CREATIVE DIRECTORS
Darren & Amy McHugh met whilst working at a very successful TONI&GUY salon in Cheltenham, UK. Having completed the intensive training at the TONI&GUY International Academy in Manchester UK, they both worked their way up the career ladder, taking advantage of the many opportunities made available to them.
Between them they have worked backstage at fashion shows for Vivienne Westwood, The National Clothes show Live, London Fashion week and New York Fashion week. They both also became Educators at the TONI&GUY Manchester Academy and part of the Manchester Academy Art Team and having felt they had gained enough experience to run their own salon, Toni Mascolo made this dream a reality and offered them the chance to take over a TONI&GUY salon in Gloucester, UK. Within a year, Darren & Amy had been awarded Franchisee of the Year in recognition for their hard work in turning a salon round to finally reaching its full potential.
They finally passed the ‘baton’ on to one of their employees and decided to use the funds to invest in this new venture at essensuals London, Cherry Hill, NJ.
