The Masters was founded in 1973 by Ann and Gary Bray, two renowned stylists and visionaries in our industry.

Ann and Gary revolutionized the industry by showing clients how to achieve “The Masters” look at home by using simple but professional techniques. Soon, people were lined up at their new salon to learn the secrets that the Brays taught.

The fashion sense and exceptional service that they brought to their business took off like wildfire. Before long, Ann and Gary’s clientele included everyone from country music performers to Broadway musical stars and people from all walks of life. The Masters were a huge success, and they began sharing their talents worldwide.
