Anthony Morrison, a member of the Joico Artistic Team, clipped, snipped, tinted and styled his way to first place on Bravo TV's Shear Genius, beating out 11 fellow hairstylists to nab the show's top spot. What was his competitive edge? "I was just myself—cool, calm and creative," says the British-born Morrison, who owns Londoner Salon and Day Spa in Manhattan Beach, CA. "I let my work and philosophy speak for itself." Since winning, Morrison is busier than ever, and so is his salon. He had to hire additional staff to take care of all the new business. "The win has definitely impacted my career," he says. "But best of all was having the opportunity to show the world what a wonderful profession this can be." —C.W.
