A successful hairstylist at Orl'o Salon in the Meatpacking District, Antonio has been featured in dozens of world-class magazines for his skills and vision. Allure magazine named him as one of the “Best Hair Cuts in NYC" while Vogue labeled him "...a rising star." Gotham magazine has called him a "shear genius." He has been featured as a guest expert on radio and is a guest writer for several online beauty sites. Since 2009 Antonio enjoys taking part in NYC's Fashion Week each season, together with his boss and mentor Orlando Pita.
Antonio's second passion is his volunteer work for hospices, transitional homes for girls, women's shelters and homeless shelters for families.
Antonio has created one platform with one voice, to inspire and educate people on the beauty of fashion and the beauty of helping those experiencing life's difficulties. "I don't do image make-overs" says Antonio. He believes that a makeover has to start with the inside… that the first step to transformation and real happiness starts by becoming aware of your inner beauty.
