Stylist Anthony Morrison is the winner of Season 1 of Bravo's hairstyling reality competition, "Shear Genius."

Age: 40

Hometown: Hertfordshire, England

Current Salon: Londoner Salon and Day Spa in Manhattan Beach, California

Signature Style: Beautiful, healthy, shiny hair

Mentor: Vidal Sassoon

When Anthony Morrison embarked on an extended vacation across America, he promised family and friends that he'd return –- but that was 17 years ago. Smitten by sun-drenched California, Morrison knew it was the place he wanted to call home.

"If you have ambition and are dedicated, you can really do well because America certainly tries to encourage and support the small businesses," says Morrison. After training in London's West End, Morrison worked as a stylist for Splinters, trained at Vidal Sassoon and opened his own salon, before he made the trip across the Atlantic. Today, Morrison runs his own hair and beauty business, Londoner Salon And Day Spa in Los Angeles' Manhattan Beach district. Morrison also travels the world educating other hairstylists and salon professionals, as well as his own team at the Londoner Academy.

When he's not running his busy salon, Morrison can be found socializing with friends in L.A.'s restaurants and cafés or working out. Morrison believes in order to be a great stylist, one should not only have a great understanding of hair, but also have a strong body and a sharp mind. That's why Morrison is up every morning at 4:15 a.m., running or working out in the gym.
