Anthony Cress

educate. inspire. aspire

This Southern California based hairstylist fell in love with the art form after his first encounter with somebody else’s hair. He cut, colored, and chemically straightened his own hair for years when friends started lining up to have him experiment on them. At this point Anthony knew this was his path. He has spent the last 17 years with the same love and drive to continually better himself.

It’s this same passion, keen eye for balance and detail that has earned him multiple national awards, including NAHA (North American Hairstylist Awards) 2007 “Avant-garde”, NAHA 2013 “Texture” award, and nominated for "Hairstylist of the Year" in both 2014 and 2016. As a Sebastian Professional artist, Anthony is traveling around the nation as a platform artist and educator to inspire and share his experience/knowledge.

Anthony's talents keep him in demand working behind the chair at Studio 4 Salon in Newport Beach (Orange County), catering to his loyal clientele. When Anthony is not behind the chair or on the road for Sebastian Professional, he is busy with editorial and film work. Anthony believes that hair should be treated as an art form and a craft, and continues to strive for mastery.
