The Hairhouse family and salon industry at large is grieving the tragic loss of the brand’s co-founder and director Joseph Lattouf, who passed away on June 17 at the age of 53 after a yearlong battle with cancer. The beloved industry figure was renowned for his leadership, penchant for growth and evolution and important standing in the hairdressing sphere.
“Hairhouse has lost a visionary and leader, and our community has lost an inspiring human being, a dear friend and mentor,” the brand’s board of directors said. “For all of us at Hairhouse, Joseph doesn’t just leave behind a company, but a legacy. Through this business, Joseph (and his brother Tony) redefined the landscape of the Australian hair industry.”
“What began in 1992 with one store (and a big dream), has become an iconic hair and beauty business, and a household name in Australia. Spanning an unprecedented 30-year period, Joseph’s genuine dedication and passion for Hairhouse remained energetic and inspiring,” the board continued, “His entire team will continue to honour his memory by working creatively, connectively, and progressively within the business that he loved so much. Joseph’s spirit will forever be the foundation of Hairhouse.”
Joseph established the hairdressing dynasty with his brother Tony, utilising both his hairdressing experience and Tony’s understanding of retail and business. This one salon grew to the now national enterprise of 130 locations, expanding through the hair salon sphere and into skincare as well.
We at INSTYLE send our love and condolences to Joseph’s loved ones and the Hairhouse family at large in this terrible time.
Vale Joseph Lattouf.
