His Charismatic personality lights up auditoriums just like they were one of his award winning salons. He is straight forward and gets personal because as the former winner of Modern Salon of the Year* likes to share

“Business is personal to people! Nothing is more personal then the way we look, it is easily one of the greatest influences on the way we feel. Simply put if you look better you feel better, and when you feel better you perform better, so why not look outrageous and amazing so you can feel and perform outrageous and amazing!”

After meeting Tony Robbins at 19 and traveling with the master around the world for years Peter Anthony’s speaking style is motivation meets fascination and it all turns into high energy and passion.

What prompted you?

Great conversations with Tony Robbins, he had me list out my values.

Were you nervous?

I came out of a serious academic environment and was studying pre-law. never thought about hair in my life and I walked into a room filled with girls with big hair. I had a tie on the first day and nearly @#$% myself. It was horrible for the first two weeks. I was nervous every time someone handed my something to do.

What was your first “makeup or hair disaster” and how did you get over it?

We were learning blow drying techniques and I finally got the courage up to ask someone to let me work on their hair. She wanted curls and volume ... I took the smallest brush I could find, lifted up her 14 inches of hair and wrapped it around the brush with my hands and hit it with some air.... You can figure out how pissed she was when we had to cut the brush out of her hair.

When did you decide to open your first salon/spa?

When I was 23, I had a dream about standing on the second floor of my salon and watching people cut hair. I walked past a location on my way to NYC and saw a "for rent" sign. There were two floors and one was a mezzanine. Signed the lease two weeks later.

Did you have enough money?

Your kidding, no matter how much you have it is never enough. My suggestion start with as little as possible.

How did you overcome hardships or adversity?

With thick skin and a rocking sense of humor at first. Then when I made my first 100k with success. What I realize is that laughter, gratefulness and humility were more important then all the huge checks in the world.

What is different about owning a salon/spa and being a stylist/artist?

Everything. Expectations of the clients and the staff. Learning how to grow people instead of focusing on growing yourself.

If you could do one thing over again in the beginning of your career what would it be?

I would have worked with Bruno Pitini when I had the chance in 87, for sure that is my biggest regret. He was the most talented hair cutter I have ever seen, period.

IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE A FAVORITE CELEBRITY TO GIVE A "MAKEOVER ON" WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

It would be Gahndi, I just need to meet him if he were here, I would love to have met Vidal for more then several hand shakes and niceties ... I would have shaken him hard and made him stay closer to the industry.

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST MAGAZINE SPREAD?

Celebrity Hair Styles, back in '90 we did  a cover using extensions and thought we were so cutting edge mixing in colors and curls. Never thought they would pick it up because we had so much fun doing it.

DOES IT STILL AMAZE YOU THAT YOU GET PAID FOR THIS?

It amazes me that people are willing to pay so for what I would certainly in my heart do for free.

BEST ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE TO A YOUNG STYLIST/ARTIST, SAY 3 YEARS IN TO THE INDUSTRY

Never forget the importance of foundational skills and strong fundamentals. NEVER forget that the people you work on live with what you do, stay humble.

YOUR FAVORITE CUT/MAKEUP TRICK?

Do it with your hands.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE BEAUTY ARTIST?

I love soooo many people and to many to list inspire me, certainly Nick Arrojo has been great, Michael Gordon I think left an amazing mark on what could be possible.... Van Council & Trevor Sorbie cut like no ones business so I LOVE THEM. Patrick Cameron amazes me and I can never duplicate his magic, nor Oribe's Genius.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE, WHAT DO YOU DO TO STAY INSPIRED?

Hug my wife  Stephanie and play with our children, there is nothing else.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET A JOB APPRENTICING AS A TOP STYLIST/ARTIST?

Be professional, inspired and keep asking until they say yes.

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE THE NEXT TREND WILL BE IN MAKEUP/HAIR?

Something that we have already seen ... but in a new way ... a more polished version, Hair will become much more aggressive and over the top, chemical knowledge will be as important or more important as scissors.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE CLIENT?

All of them.
