A Word From Antony
Speaking of his appointment, Antony Strianese said, “I am delighted to make this move to Britain with my family. I certainly feel privileged to be in a position to lead this world-renowned business here in the UK and across Ireland. ghd is an iconic brand and a leader within the professional hair tool category, known for its cutting-edge technology and ability to empower those who use it – values which resonate acutely in today’s society and are incredibly important.
Having worked within the industry for many years I have gained valuable insight into the complexities of this beautiful trade: the characters, the events, the innovations and of course, at the heart of it, the community. I look forward to making the acquaintance of many new hairdressing friends at forthcoming industry shows and events.”
