I’m Anthony Basinger, a specialist in ammonia free hair color. I was an early adopter in the ammonia free revolution and use INOA, DIA Richesse and DIA Light from L’Oreal Professionnel exclusively.

My focus on hair goes beyond color. My strong suits include cutting women’s hair, curly hair, men’s grooming and fashion trends. I believe the blend of modern technologies, ongoing education and my personal attention to detail enable me to create a style, cut and color that is right for you.

I began using INOA in 2010 when it was introduced in the United States. To learn the chemistry and master the nuances of the unique oil delivery system, I participated in numerous professional education classes in California and New York. In a short time, I fully embraced INOA as my only permanent hair color line.

I’ve been truly fortunate to expand my professional knowledge, participating in workshops, classes and internships around the world from education resources including Vidal Sassoon, L’Oréal, Dop Dop Salon, Bumble and Bumble, Karg and Blackwell Academy and the Alexandre de Paris Academie in France. I believe education keeps my work fresh. It keeps me on top of the newest techniques, hair care technologies and my fashion sense up to date.

I have immersed myself in the art, craft and science of superior hair care for nearly two decades. I began my career as an apprentice at Festoon Salon in San Francisco and Berkeley working my way to top stylist and educator in their apprentice training program. In late 2009, I opened Anthony Basinger Hair Studio and in late 2012, I expanded into a larger space as Salon Basinger.

In late 2017, I decided to refocus my energies on clients, moving on from salon ownership to join the team at Echos Hair Design. Echos is a perfect place to unwind and recharge. A modern, elegant salon environment with large windows welcoming natural light and fresh air. You’ll find me working by the window.

A native Texan, I have called the Bay Area home for 20+ years. Before my career in hair, I spent a decade as a professional chef and have also written for magazines and worked in marketing and public relations. My breadth of life experience helps me relate to and respect the individual needs of my clients.
