Hairhouse co-founder Joseph Lattouf dies at 53

Joseph Lattouf, a co-founder of Hairhouse Warehouse, passed away on the 17 of June, 2020, after a one-year battle with cancer. He was 53.

Melbourne brothers Tony and Joseph Lattouf established the hair business in 1992 with a store in Knox City. Joseph brought his hairdressing experience, Tony his retail and business knowhow.

Today the multi-award winning one-stop hair and beauty store business counts more than 130 outlets across the country, and has grown to a portfolio which includes Australian Skin Clinics.

Last year the iconic Aussie brand rebranded to Hairhouse.

Joseph Lattouf once said “Evolution is everything. We’ve got to keep changing, we’ve got to keep things happening.  I’m very proud on behalf of all my partners – you are all my partners.”

The Hairhouse directors have issued a statement, expressing their “deep sadness”.

“We have lost a visionary and leader, and our community has lost an inspiring human being, a dear friend and mentor. 

“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. 

“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.”
