April 27, 2012 | 3:10 PM

Personal Style: Omar Antonio“Before anything else I am an artist—I just happen to be an artist who does hair,” says Omar Antonio, P&G Salon Professional Core Artistic Member who tours the world as a platform artist representing Sebastian Professional and Wella Professionals. A resident of Benicia, California, Antonio does beautiful color, precision hair cuts, extensions and everything in between. Best known for his avant garde work, it is on stage where his true talent and passion shines.


Born: In Vallejo, California. I have lived all over the Bay Area, but now I make Benicia my home.

My style right now: A mixture of glamour and grunge. It’s vintage with a hint of elegance—all black of course.

Favorite item in my wardrobe: My John Fluevog boots, I have only a few pair, but I LOVE them!

The best thing about my job: Collaborating with some of the best artists all over the world. The toughest part of my job: Being away from my family!

My favorite movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Most people would be surprised to learn: I’m the father of four beautiful children! My secret talent: I was a choreographer/dancer and co-owned a dance studio for 15 years.

Guilty pleasure: Watching re-runs of the Golden Girls.

I am inspired by: Everything! I could go to Home Depot and shop for hours. I am constantly asking myself, “What could I make with that?”
