TONI&GUY Hairdressing Academy Newtown

Request Info

Colonial on the outside and modern within, our barber and cosmetology school began as Ricci's Academy of Cosmetology in 1992 and converted to Ricci's TONI&GUY® Hairdressing Academy in September of 2013. Our easy-to-find location in Newtown's bustling South Main Street Marketplace allows us to serve aspiring hair professionals from Danbury to Bridgeport, Waterbury to Shelton, and everywhere in between. Furthermore, our 7,800 square feet of modern, well-appointed classroom and salon space delivers an upscale feel with decidedly New England flair. Our students, staff, and clientele find our location to be extremely convenient, as the surrounding area is dotted with eateries and some of the most unique shops in all of Fairfield County.

Backed by over 125 combined years of beauty and barbering industry experience, our faculty members are some of most knowledgeable, talented, and passionate around. What makes them even more special is their uncanny ability to transfer their expertise to students through a combination of learning by seeing and learning by doing. This devotion, however, is not solely held by our faculty or only focused on education; it is also shared by our students and reaches well outside the crisp, white walls of our academy in Newtown.

Supporting Those Who Support Us

Priding ourselves on social responsibility, we have hosted, sponsored, and participated in countless community service and support efforts over the years. Recently, in the wake of the tragic events in Sandy Hook, one of our primary focuses has been fundraising to benefit the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a community-created and community-driven non-profit that actively provides aid to those affected and advocates for change.
