TONY ANDRE
January 2, 1955 – February 23, 2018

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our dear friend and co-owner, Tony Andre. He was a generous colleague and mentor, who especially encouraged and promoted the development of young people in our profession. A talented stylist, he first worked in New York City and also studied under Vidal Sassoon in London. When he moved to New Hope, PA, Tony worked at the salon at Zoli’s before opening Andre Hair Design with the help of his life partner, Ariel Alejandro, in the location now held by Bangz Salon. He is sorely missed by his remaining family, friends, and clients. Please celebrate Tony’s life in your own time and way — especially during Pride Week — with joy and laughter.
