Marco Greco—a Toronto based hair stylist who coiffed the hair of some of the city’s most stylish women—passed away suddenly at the age of 46 on Tuesday. Greco was an editorial staple at FASHION, where he produced looks that were both stunning and memorable. Susie Sheffman, our fashion editor-at-large, remembers Greco’s gentle nature saying, “Aside from a talented hairdresser, the world has lost a lovely gentle soul in Marco. It was always a treat to sit in his chair, and an honour to collaborate with him creatively on shoots.”
When not doing editorial work, Greco cut and styled hair from revered Toronto salon Angst. Despite its location in one of the scrappiest quarters of the city, high-profile clients like Kimberley Newport-Mimran would regularly make the trek to have Greco tend to their tresses. The Pink Tartan designer liked the hair stylist’s work so much she took to her blog to praise him writing, “My hairdresser is Marco from Bill Angst, he is a genius!”
Greco also worked with Canadian super model Shalom Harlow, and notably cut Bryan Adam’s hair the last time the Canadian crooner was in Toronto. It turns out that the homegrown rock star was so impressed with his first Greco cut that he had the stylist pop by the concert venue for a pre-show trim.
